dmc is Python and Csound for live audio.

pycs was the PYthon Csound entertainment System for PS/2 game controller. dmc was several generations of keyboard controlled audio event generators. They are now merged as dmc.

Right now only the pycs component is activated.

It runs under Linux, Windows, and probably OS X.
