Fair enough.  Csound is indeed audiocentric, as am I.  I just know
Csound has already implemented HRTF, and exists as a PD object, which
I thought the poster wanted.  If his interest is in pulling an
abstraction apart to see how it works, then Csound probably isn't the
easiest way.
As far as computer music, it's true that I come across few people who
are active on both lists, and occasional disparaging remarks about one
or the other.  I guess the best thing for me to do in that case is to
try to show some of the great things that can come from the
combination, rather than complaining about negativity.
