depending on what os/lisp you want to use the basic support for  
realtime algorithmic synth with csound is already there. that is, on  
OSX the rts scheduler works well and can handle scheduling for sort  
of alorithm in real time. realtime MIDI input should also be working  
too for portmidi and for midishare. these should work on linux too,  
but i dont know if anyone is using either rts or cm with portmidi  
there. the main bad news is that if you want to run on windows i  
think rts is hopeless unless some sort of pthread library is available.
