Everything :-) composition, experimentations, DSP, editing, mixing,
notation, performance.

One of the strengths of CLM/Snd is straightforward construction of
single-sample dsp-loops.  There are examples similar to the things you
suggest in the various packages.

In modern environments RT often means unnecessary waiting for something
to finish rendering (PTs bounce to disk ...), and good tools like
Csound/SuperCollider provide ways around RT.

If you need RT, I know of at least 2 real-time environments based on

Kjetils version of snd, with a special rt-scheduler:


and Rohan Drapes scheme-client for SuperCollider:


Good luck.
