I just found
"Introduction to Sound Processing" by Davide Rocchesso
Download sp.pdf (200 pages)
(GNU Free Document License)

I looks really promising. I just skimmed through some chapters, though.

It covers all sorts of things:
Chapter 1: Systems, Sampling and Quantization
Chapter 2: Digital Filters (including filterbanks and frequency warping)
Chapter 3: Delays and Effects (including fractional sample delays, reverb, spatial effects)
Chapter 4: Sound Analysis
Chapter 5: Sound Modelling (including LPC modelling, digital oscillators)
Appndx A: Mathematical Fundamentals
Appndx B: Tools for Soundprocessing (including Matlab, Octave, CSound)
Appndx C: fundamentals of psychoacoustics

Robert A. Wannamaker, Stanley P. Lipshitz, and John Vanderkooy, A theory of nonsubtractive dithering

A. Härmä. Implementation of recursive filters having delay free loops. In Proc. IEEE Int. Conf. Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, volume III, pages 1261-1264, Seattle, Washington, May 1998. (here)

Härmä's paper is certainly not for everybody but it's very useful for those who want to design/implement filters with frequency responses matching certain masking threshold curves. The problem of delay free loops arise when trying to exploit the nonuniform bandwidth of the critical bands during filter design by the use of the frequency warping technique. Härmä's paper provides a general solution to the "delay free loops"-problem as well as special modified structures for frequency warped all-pole filters (including the lattice structure).

Cheers,
SG

1. Mathematics of the Discrete Fourier Transform
http://ccrma.stanford.edu/~jos/mdft/


2. Introduction to Digital Filters
http://ccrma.stanford.edu/~jos/filters/


Great introductory courses by J.O.Smith III from Stanford University.

The books are finaly published and available at Amazon, Alibris, AbeBooks, etc.

Search for:

1. Mathematics of the Discrete Fourier Transform: with Audio Applications,
by Julius Smith.
2. Introduction to Digital Filters: with Audio Applications,
by Julius Smith.

One of the greatest books on the subject, just doesn't get better that this.

http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Reproduction-A...3839&sr=8-1
"Sound Reproduction: The Acoustics and Psychoacoustics of Loudspeakers and Rooms", Floyd Toole

A nice summary of a career focused on investigating reproduction of music in "small rooms", and how to formalize listener subjective response.

Note that there are practically no formulas in the book. Everything is conveyed through graphs and the text.

Some text references which I often see lying on people's desks in the Audio group of Fraunhofer IIS (sometimes also referred to as "home of MP3"  ):

Spanias, Painter, and Atti, "Audio Signal Processing and Coding," Wiley, 2007.
http://www.amazon.com/Signal-Processing-Co...s/dp/0471791474

Oppenheim, Schafer, Buck, "Discrete-Time Signal Processing," Prentice Hall, 1999.
http://www.amazon.com/Discrete-Time-Signal...l/dp/0137549202

Zölzer, "Digital Audio Signal Processing," Wiley, 2008.
http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Audio-Signal...r/dp/0470997850

I do not recommend them for beginners, though, especially the Oppenheim.
If I don't reply to your reply, it means I agree with you.

Hello,

Could someone please refer me to a good book to study MDCT (and lapped transforms in general) besides Malvar's "Signal Processing with Lapped Transforms"?

I've been trying to get Malvar's (it's the main reference I've seen for lapped transforms) but there is no library nearby that has it and it's a bit expensive to buy it...

Thank you.

I came across this title (which, as a bit of a noob, perked my interest):
The Audio Programming Book

The title alone sounds as if it covers all the bases that I want.  I mean I'm wrapping up a C++ course, and I want a bit of motivation to peek ahead and see how I can apply all this to sounds, in general.  That includes signal processing, but I feel like it should include other elements (though, as a noob, I'm sorta oblivious to what all they could be).

I may be underestimating how broad of a field digital signal processing is, but can anyone recommend a decent introductory book to the world of programming and audio, in addition to the one I linked above?

Thanks.

P.S.  Thanks for this thread too.  I bookmarked probably a dozen links.

Perfecting Sound Forever - The Story of Recorded Music : Greg Milner : Granta ISBN 978 1 84708 140 7

Not a technical tome like most of the other suggestions but a well researched and interesting exploration of the history of recording.

Looks like its online here:  http://ntnu.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2:395

and here:

http://www.slashdocs.com/ipupqt/digital-to...tion-audio.html

Licensing looks ok so I think its fine to post mirrors...


The second link worked for me, and given my current location (on a somewhat restricted public network in a hospital), the observed failure of the first one could easy be due my flakey means of access, may not a a reliable problem.

Of course there's the paper itself which contains in its abstract:

"Clock jitter is one of the most critical performance bottlenecks in high resolution audio, and the paper proposes ways to minimize the DAC’s jitter susceptibility. "

Here we go again... ;-(
