Created in 1985 by Barry Vercoe, Csound is one of the most widely used software sound synthesis systems. Because it is so powerful, mastering Csound can take a good deal of time and effort. But this long-awaited guide will dramatically straighten the learning curve and enable musicians to take advantage of this rich computer technology available for creating music.
Written by the world's leading educators, programmers, sound designers, and composers, this comprehensive guide covers both the basics of Csound and the theoretical and musical concepts necessary to use the program effectively. The thirty-two tutorial chapters cover: additive, subtractive, FM, AM, FOF, granular, wavetable, waveguide, vector,LA, and other hybrid methods; analysis and resynthesis using ADSYN, LP, and the Phase Vocoder; sample processing; mathematical and physical modeling; and digital signal processing, including room simulation and 3D modeling.

I found this book to be the most complete collection of resources that I seen about one subject. In addition to the 32 chapter of the book there are 45 chapter in one of the CD-ROMs, plus many other tutorials, musical examples, instruments, applications (including Csound), interfaces-A LOT OF INFORMATION. You won¿t need to browse the Internet to find more information. If you never programmed on Csound-or any other computer language- the first chapter gives you all you need to get started. In fact, the Csound course at Berklee College is based on this chapter. Then, you choose what areas interest you most (analog synths, Reverb design, FOF, composition, programming, etc, etc.) Definitely is worth buying it if you are interested in computer music and essential for anyone serious about it.Was this review helpful?
