5.0 von 5 Sternen First-rate introduction/tutorial 22. März 2012
Von David L. Phillips - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Disclaimer: I contributed a tiny bit of Linux-specific information to the book, so I might be a bit biased here.

I'm definitely biased by 20+ years of working with Csound, and as a long-time user I am pleased to see this book. There's no lack of documentation for Csound, but Csound Power provides a missing part - a normal user's introduction to the installation, configuration, and basic use of a deep and complex environment. Csound Power is relatively up-to-date (Csound development is a very active track), and the book's tutorial material includes an excellent introduction to Andres Cabrera's outstanding CsoundQt, a cross-platform IDE for writing, editing, and running Csound code. Other noteworthy material includes a great tutorial on building your own synthesizers (Jim's an expert on the topic) and a chapter titled "Thirty Opcodes You Must Know" that significantly reduces the new user's initial confusion when faced with Csound's hundreds of opcodes (i.e. processing modules). Another neat chapter presents the possibilities when Csound connects with other interesting music and sound software - e.g. Max/MSP, AbletonLive, Pure Data (Pd) - by using MIDI or OSC messaging, or by writing control programs in general-purpose computer languages such as Java and Python.

Minor critiques: No information regarding Csound on mobile devices, and no disc with code examples and other relevant material. Frankly, neither lack bothers me at all, but some may wonder why it's missing. Development of Csound for mobiles has only recently begun to move forward, I doubt there was much relevant information available while Jim wrote the book. Regarding the disc-with-code: Sorry, I'm Old Skool, I think it's good practice to copy the (usually brief) examples into an editor. After all, Csound is a programming language.

Jim Aikin is a well-known figure in the world of music technology, and his writing has always been clear, informative, and uncomplicated. Csound Power continues his fine work, to the great benefit of Csound users everywhere.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A welcome addition.. 3. Februar 2012
Von R Foose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Csound Power is a welcome addition to the library of books dealing with this powerful audio program. I received my copy yesterday, and am about halfway through a first reading. The book is geared to be an introduction to creating music with csound, as opposed to a more in-depth explanation of all its features and uses. (For which see the Reference Manual and Boulanger's 'Csound', in particular). It compares to the recently released FLOSS manual for Csound in that it selects a subset of the 'unit generators' for discussion. But unlike the FLOSS manual, it goes into greater depth about installing and configuring both the Csound program and the Csoundqt front-end. The thirty-plus unit generators discussed are certainly enough to enable someone new to Csound to create interesting and/or remarkable music with the program, and they are certainly enough to establish a good base of understanding for further exploration. Along the way, the author includes his own tips for use and other bits of helpful information. Anyone with a basic knowledge of how sound is created and how music is organized will be able to profitably use the book. I was a bit surprised at the book itself. It's dimensions were large than I anticipated. The typeface is also a bit bigger than other Csound books I have, but not by a lot, and it does make reading easier for an old guy like me. There is no CD to accompany the text, so you'll need to type in the examples yourself. This is actually a good thing, since it's really the best (if not only) way to learn to use Csound anyway. If you want to learn Csound, you will if you use this book.
(Note: I'd give it five stars..but I'm not done reading it yet!!)
5.0 von 5 Sternen Love it 17. Juni 2013

CSound is really big - this book cuts through the chase and brings what's essential for the average person to start making music to the table. Recommended.
