Audio Programming Books

 

The Audio Programming Book (The MIT Press)

Handbook of mathematical and programming techniques for audio signal processing. I just bought this so am yet to delve deeper.

 

Designing Audio Effect Plug-Ins in C++

 

Electronic Music and Sound Design – Theory and Practice with Max 7 – Volume 1 (Third Edition)

Overview of the theory and practice of Max/MSP, with a glossary of terms and suggested tests that allow students to evaluate their progress. Comprehensive online support, running parallel to the explanations in the book, includes hundreds of sample patches, analyses, interactive sound-building exercises, and reverse engineering exercises. I like the way this book is separated into Theory & practice sections.
