Re: Any good books for sound synthesis?

If you use Max/MSP, there's the Electronic Music and Sound Design books, volumes 1 and 2. I have the first one, and have read into it a little. It's very much like a textbook, with examples and things you're supposed to try out, so it's not exactly all a book you can just read, but more something you get to work in Max/MSP and do what it's doing to kinda get what's going on. It was kinda alright tho.

Also, the Computer Music Tutorial goes into all kinds of different synthesis techniques, programming, lots of stuff. It's basically a book of a whole bunch of essays on Computer Music. It is quite a big book, over 1000 pages I believe (I've read about 1/3 of my copy), but it has lots of stuff in it that's pretty good if you don't mind the technical material that is also on the programming side and can sit down and read through it all. Also, I've seen some pdf's of it floating around...
