Cooking with Csound offers a fresh approach to using the software to create effective sounds. This book contains a collection of software synthesis designs for the woodwind and brass instruments, which you can bake into compositional curries, casseroles and soufflés in your computer. Whether you are a composer, researcher, student or hobbyist, the ready-to-use designs found in this volume will provide you with a rich set of sounds. The designs are in the Csound software synthesis language, which is available free on the web. The book includes a tutorial for those new to Csound, and a wide variety of effects for customizing the instrument designs. A chapter on pitch representation also allows readers to use customized tunings and scales.
