Not just another theory-heavy digital signal processing book, nor another dull build-a-generic-database programming book, Designing Audio Effect Plug-Ins in C++ gives you everything you everything you need to know to do just that, including fully worked, downloadable code for dozens of professional audio effect plug-ins and practically presented algorithms. With this book, you get access to a companion website where you can download the accompanying Rapid Plug-In Development software to compile and test the book examples, all the code examples, and view student plug-ins and tutorial videos on the development software. Start with an intuitive and practical introduction to the digital signal processing (DSP) theory behind audio plug-ins, and quickly move on to plug-in implementation, gain knowledge of algorithms on filtering, delay, reverb, modulated effects, dynamics processing, and more. You will then be ready to design and implement your own unique plug-ins on any platform and within most any host program. Readers are expected to have some knowledge of C++, and high school math.

The professional recording industry is rapidly moving from a hardware paradigm (big studios with expensive gear) to a software paradigm, in which lots of expensive hardware is replaced with a single computer loaded with software plug-ins. Complete albums are now being recorded and engineered "inside the box"-all within a computer without hardware processing or mixing gear. Audio effect plug-ins, which are small software modules that work within audio host applications, like Avid Pro Tools, Apple Logic, Ableton Live, and Steinberg Cubase, are big business. Designing Audio Effect Plug-Ins in C++ gives readers everything they need to know to create real-world, working plug-ins in the widely used C++ programming language. Beginning with the necessary theory behind audio signal processing, author Will Pirkle quickly gets into the heart of this implementation guide, with clearly-presented, previously unpublished algorithms, tons of example code, and practical advice. From the companion website, readers can download free software for the rapid development of the algorithms, many of which have never been revealed to the general public. The resulting plug-ins can be compiled to snap in to any of the above host applications. Readers will come away with the knowledge and tools to design and implement their own audio signal processing designs. Learn to build audio effect plug-ins in a widely used, implementable programming language-C++ Design plug-ins for a variety of platforms (Windows and Mac) and popular audio applications Companion site gives you fully worked-out code for all the examples used, free development software for download, video tutorials for the software, and examples of student plug-ins complete with theory and code

Bridging the gap from theory to programming, Designing Software Synthesizer Plug-Ins in C++ For RackAFX, VST3 and Audio Units contains complete code for designing and implementing software synthesizers for both Windows and Mac platforms. You will learn synthesizer operation, starting with the underlying theory of each synthesizer component, and moving on to the theory of how these components combine to form fully working musical instruments that function on a variety of target digital audio workstations (DAWs). Containing some of the latest advances in theory and algorithm development, this book contains information that has never been published in textbook form, including several unique algorithms of the author’s own design. The book is broken into three parts: plug-in programming, theory and design of the central synthesizer components of oscillators, envelope generators, and filters, and the design and implementation of six complete polyphonic software synthesizer musical instruments, which can be played in real time. The instruments implement advanced concepts including a user-programmable modulation matrix. The final chapter shows you the theory and code for a suite of delay effects to augment your synthesizers, introducing you to audio effect processing. The companion website, www.focalpress.com/cw/pirkle, gives you access to free software to guide you through the application of concepts discussed in the book, and code for both Windows and Mac platforms. In addition to the software, it features bonus projects, application notes, and video tutorials. A reader forum, monitored by the author, gives you the opportunity for questions and information exchange.

Audio Effects: Theory, Implementation and Application explores digital audio effects relevant to audio signal processing and music informatics. It supplies fundamental background information on digital signal processing, focusing on audio-specific aspects that constitute the building block on which audio effects are developed. The text integrates theory and practice, relating technical implementation to musical implications. It can be used to gain an understanding of the operation of existing audio effects or to create new ones. In addition to delivering detailed coverage of common (and unusual) audio effects, the book discusses current digital audio standards, most notably VST and AudioUnit. Source code is provided in C/C++ and implemented as audio effect plug-ins with accompanying sound samples. Each section of the book includes study questions, anecdotes from the history of music technology, and examples that offer valuable real-world insight, making this an ideal resource for researchers and for students moving directly into industry.

A digital filter can be pictured as a "black box" that accepts a sequence of numbers and emits a new sequence of numbers. In digital audio signal processing applications, such number sequences usually represent sounds. For example, digital filters are used to implement graphic equalizers and other digital audio effects. This book is a gentle introduction to digital filters, including mathematical theory, illustrative examples, some audio applications, and useful software starting points. The theory treatment begins at the high-school level, and covers fundamental concepts in linear systems theory and digital filter analysis. Various "small" digital filters are analyzed as examples, particularly those commonly used in audio applications. Matlab programming examples are emphasized for illustrating the use and development of digital filters in practice.
