"Some interesting items showed up under Dave's Christmas tree,
including a new book by some old friends, a laptop keyboard (music,
not QWERTY), and an excellent Linux audio plugin for high-quality
reverb. Dave must have been a very good boy last year.
"The Audio Programming Book
"Dr. Richard Boulanger has dedicated his life to the promotion
of computer-based music, with a particular focus on the Csound
audio/MIDI programming language. His resume includes work with the
Who's Who of pioneering electroacoustic musicians and researchers,
and his role as educator continues to bring new talents to greater
awareness and achievement.
"In the year 2000 Professor Boulanger - a.k.a. Dr. B, a.k.a.
Rick - fulfilled one part of his mission when the MIT Press
published The Csound Book. That book was a collaborative work that
drew contributions from the leading lights of the Csound
development and user communities. Rick edited those contributions
into an organized and coherent presentation of Csound's many
facets, from the details of its C source code to the design of rich
synthesis and composition tools."
