DAFX:Digital Audio Effects Reviews
I have found this book invaluable from cover to cover. It is by far the best book written on the subject of digital audio effects in the last few years. Anyone purchasing this book should already understand digital signal processing in general as well as Matlab. Readers should also have been exposed to digital audio processing either through their own experience or perhaps through the author's other excellent book entitled "Digital Audio Signal Processing". If you do not have a background in DSP you will probably be in over your head with this book. It is not one of those dime-a-dozen books that are all too common about some off-the-shelf software that will enable you to make cool noises with your computer with minimum effort and understanding on your part. Instead, "DAFX" covers a great deal of ground, starting with a general overview of digital filters and then moving rapidly into audio specific filters, modulation, nonlinear audio processing, and spatial effects, just to name a few subjects that are discussed. There are plenty of equations, instructive figures, and block diagrams of filters throughout the book that should be easily understood by anyone with a signal processing background. The MATLAB files for many of the filters can be obtained via the author's website. If you download them, and examine both the MATLAB code and the book's explanations, you should be able to understand how to reproduce the effects discussed. The book does have an extensive bibliography at the conclusion of each chapter so that the reader can get more detail on some of the effects that the author left unimplemented.
Definitely, a great book. Besides the theory, it incorporates MATLAB files for demosntrating the concepts. The authors are definitely masters on the topics. The DAFX conferences' papers, which could be donwloaded from their web sites help to dive deep into the subject. Unfortunately it doesn't give enough coverage to some topics, rather gives a lot of resources (papers, books) where to look for more concise information. Without additional information and knowledge you could not implement any of those awesome effects.
