This is the third in a series of volumes dedicated to the theory and practice of digital synthesis, signal processing, electronic music, and sound design. All three volumes consist of chapters on theory and computer practice.
The three books are part of a structured teaching method incorporating a substantial amount of online supporting materials: hundreds of sound examples and interactive examples, videos, theory and practice glossaries, tests, and programs written in Max, a Max object library created specifically for these volumes, hundreds of patches and many practical activities (often with Gen and Jitter).
Structured for use in university courses, these books are equally useful for self-learners and for those studying under the guidance of a teacher.
This third volume – which consists of more than 700 pages – can be used by advanced users who have a firm grasp of the concepts and Max practices outlined in the first two volumes.
