Thanks man! Just ordered the $1 bundle, can't beat that price. Looking forward to checking out The Producer as Composer.

I still have a hard copy of Music, Cognition and Computerized Sound I bought in the early 2000s and can wholeheartedly recommend it.

Wish they had this a few years ago. I paid like $60 for just the Audio Programming Book.

Throwing out the Entorwellian bat signal to weigh in on the quality of these.

 

I bought that CSound book almost 20 years ago and I remember it being decent but dry, like so much about CSound.

Grabbed all of these, I'm thinking they'll definitely be worth it just for reference.

I've read about half of those in the $15 bracket. I don't recommend them unless you're a comp sci. student. I didn't make it through the CSound one.

The psychoacoustics one looks interesting, but there are probably better books.

 

http://www.musimathics.com/ these series are my favourites for the theory aspect. They're a bit condensed, like a 100-200 level university course text, but they cover everything concisely and have references to launch off into different branches if anything in them interests you.

Yes, thank you, I need to pick those up. I remember them being much more expensive for some reason, but really they're barely on the other side of instabuy.

wanted to extend my gratitude to you again, sir. Finished The Producer as Composer, learned some interesting stuff about Brian Eno's process and, surprisingly, that there was a very logical sonic method to the madness of Phil Spector's wall of sound antics. Took a look at the introduction to Music and Probability at work today, looking forward to reading it soon!
