Book about programming DSP algorithms.

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.

Both of the previous poster's suggestions are great.

Miller Puckette has a super useful book with lots of examples implemented in Pure Data: http://msp.ucsd.edu/techniques.htm

I've been working through this book, currently on chapter 7. It is very readable and very interesting. A few of the graphics end up on the wrong pages, and there are occasional typos, but nothing really terrible. Thanks for the link! I'm really enjoying this.

Kadenze offers a variety of online classes you might find interesting. You can audit the classes for free or if you like, pay something like $20/month and then proceed at your own pace. I took classes in ChucK, JUCE, and FAUST. It's not quite like taking a regular class, mostly because the professors who recorded the videos may or probably won't be around to answer any questions you might have. But if you are strongly self motivated, it could work.
