I have started to use Max/MSP/Jitter from the last Christmas, SuperCollider and Processing from the late January.
Unlimited possibilities are there.
The important thing is not to master the usage of software, but to try to find a way to materialise anyhow, while having your imaginary ideal project in your mind.
If you do not have anything in your mind, it will be very easy to be bored of studying the software…!
