Summary "Developing Virtual Synthesizers with VCV Rack takes the reader step-by-step through the process of developing synthesizer modules, beginning with the elementary and leading up to more engaging examples. Using the intuitive VCV Rack and its open source C++ API, this book will guide even the most inexperienced reader to master efficient DSP coding to create oscillators, filters, and the most complex modules. Examining practical topics related to releasing plugins and managing complex graphical user interaction, together with an intuitive study of signal processing theory specifically tailored for sound synthesis and virtual analog, this book covers everything from theory to practice. With exercises and example patches in each chapter, the reader will build a library of synthesizer modules which they can modify and expand. Supplemented by a companion website, this book is recommended reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students of audio engineering, music technology, computer science, electronics, and related courses; audio coding and do-it-yourself enthusiasts; and professionals looking for a quick guide to VCV Rack. VCV Rack is a free and open-source software available online"-- Provided by publisher
