Sound synthesis sources


    Dec 03 2006 | 5:08 pm
    Hi there,
    I'm new to sound synthesis, but would like to go beyond the msp tutorials and the google search, I'd like to know what happens under the hood. What would be the right source(s) to start? Either books or sites are fine with me.
    Thank you for your help.
    Best,
    Leonardo.

      The usual book sources are good places to start:
      Charles Dodge & Thomas Jerse, Computer Music, 2nd Ed., Schirmer 1997 Curtis Roads, The Computer Music Tutorial, MIT Press 1996 F. Richard Moore, Elements of Computer Music, Prentice Hall 1990
      There are also some very good relevant articles in the following anthologies:
      Curtis Roads & John Strawn, eds., Foundations of Computer Music, MIT Press 1985 Curtis Roads, ed., The Music Machine, MIT Press 1989 Max Mathews and John Pierce, eds., Current Directions In Computer Music Research, MIT Press 1989
