DAn. ------- Forwarded Message Date: Thu, 30 Mar 2000 16:40:14 -0400 From: Jud Wolfskill <wolfskil(at)MIT.EDU> Subject: Boulanger book announcement [...] The following is a book which readers of this list might find of interest. For more information please visit http://mitpress.mit.edu/promotions/books/BOUCPF99 The Csound Book Perspectives in Software Synthesis, Sound Design, Signal Processing, and Programming edited by Richard Boulanger 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 guide will dramatically straighten the learning curve and enable musicians to take advantage of this rich computer technology available for creating music. Written by leading educators, programmers, sound designers, and composers, this 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. The book comes with two CD-ROMs that include more than forty additional HTML chapters; hundreds of musical compositions; more than 3,000 working instruments; the Csound application for Macintosh, PC, and Linux; and a number of Csound audio and score-generating utilities. Richard Boulanger is Professor in the Music Synthesis Department at Berklee College of Music, Boston. 8 x 9, 592 pp., 725 illus., paper ISBN 0-262-52261-6 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | Jud Wolfskill ||||||| Associate Publicist Phone: (617) 253-2079 ||||||| MIT Press Fax: (617) 253-1709 ||||||| Five Cambridge Center E-mail: wolfskil(at)mit.edu | Cambridge, MA 02142-1493 http://mitpress.mit.edu ------- End of Forwarded Message
