Recently I have been away from C++, cos i needed to write a Pure Data external in plain old C. At first i was kind of dreading it, thinking i’d struggle with C after having all the nice things Juce and C++ offer. But actually, i really got into it, and to be honest, i found myself enjoying the restraints and simplicity of C in that case.
Also, i can put my DSP code inside pd externals and check it very thoroughly there.
So, my question: if i enjoy writing my DSP processing in plain C, and i have a good system going with that… are there any really overwhelming reasons i shouldn’t?
I am certainly using C++ for the overall framework of my projects, but just for those critical bits of audio code, i’m really finding C is working well.
Is this ok to mix and match?
