Link collection of DSP / audio programming sites

If you feel like diving into programming of plugins yourself (and I would encourage you to do so), here is an (unsorted) collection of links to get more information.
Some of them are pretty well-known among the community of programmers, others found their way into my bookmark list just by surfing the net and feeding the search engines with stupid questions.

Beware: Starting to program plugins can make you addicted, weird, look neglected and may isolate you from your normal environment :D
Furthermore, it can be very frustrating when things don't work as expected and your computer keeps on crashing. I recommend you to look for someone to pick you up from time to time... ;)



One of the best link collections of all time, a good starting point to search for anything related to computers and electronics:

http://www.tobybear.de/dsp.htm

'Scuzzphut' is one of the few people who started out coding for VST in Delphi. He added some valuable comments to his source code that should make life easier for a beginner:
