Interacting with the sound card.

P: 3
Hello everyone. I'm interested in writing a program that interfaces with the microphone jack on my computer and displays the frequencies on my computer. I know there are programs out there, but I wanted the challenge of writing my own program (No, it's not for class... we don't get to do anything this cool). Anyways... The only language that I'm good at is Java, but I doubt that will help me here, so I was thinking C++ would be better. Any advice on how to go about this? I've read that the soundcard has interfaces that I should use, rather than actually accessing the soundcard directly. Also, if you think I should be writing in another language, please let me know. Any directions would be appriciated! (No real/working code though, I want the challenge of programming it myself).

Thanks
