Book about programming DSP algorithms.

Postby Michael Willis » Wed Jul 10, 2019 2:52 pm

Can somebody recommend a good book on programming digital signal processing algorithms?

After working on the Dragonfly Reverb plugins, I feel like a fraud that has fooled some of the masses into thinking that I know a thing or two about developing audio effects. The truth is that I just put a nice wrap over the stuff from freeverb3, and I don't really know much about what's going on inside, other than a bit of poking around in the freeverb3 code and searching wikipedia for the terms that I find.

An ongoing conversation with the inimitable Unfa has inspired me to start a new project, one that will require me to actually understand some of this crazy black magic that goes into programming audio effects. If I'm going to do that I will need some good resources to learn from.

I would recommend all the material published by Julius Orion Smith III:

Plenty of good stuff there.
Check my Linux audio experiments on my SoundCloud.
Browse my AUR packages.
