The Audio Programming Book

“This is not just a book; it is an encyclopedia of mathematical and programming techniques for audio signal processing. It is an encyclopedia focused on the future, but built upon the massive foundations of past mathematical, signal processing, and programming sciences.” – Max Mathews.

The Audio Programming Book, edited by Richard Boulanger and Victor Lazzarini and published by MIT Press, showed up at my doorstep last friday. Since receiving my copy, I’ve been thumbing through the pages at random, reading every little excerpt that caught my eye, while taking hard long looks at the various C programming examples. My initial impression, wow.

I suspect I’ll be covering some C programming here in the near future.

  1. After this little book review, I was thoroughly convinced that I should buy it, long time waiting in my shopping cart. And we do appreciate C programming here! Thank you!

  2. Alan, are you referring to Computer Music: Synthesis, Composition and Performance? If so, the Audio Programming Book is a C programming book, while there’s much more audio theory in Computer Music. If anything, they compliment each other. Learn the theory with one, implement it in a C program in the other.

    On a sad note, I lost my Dodge book 10 years ago.
