## Prerequisite Topics

Suggested languages:

- C / C++ - low level, high performance, can be used for writing VST plugins, game audio components (e.g. native Unity audio plugins, Wwise plugins)
- PureData - high level, can be used for prototyping synths, sound design work

Fourier transforms:

- Linear algebra
- Complex numbers and Euler's Formula

## Books

These books are available for free online and can also be purchased as physical books:

- Julius O. Smith III: Introduction to Digital Filters - general mathematical theory about digital signal processing
- Julius O. Smith III: Mathematics of the Discrete Fourier Transform - mathematical theory about spectral analysis
- Miller Puckette: Theory and Techniques of Electronic Music - concrete examples of audio synthesis and filters in PureData (graphical programming language)
- Sophocles J. Orfanidis: Introduction to Signal Processing - general information about digital signal processing
- Wikibook: Sound Synthesis Theory - WIP synthesis book
