For speech processing, Practical Approaches to Speech Coding by Panos Pappa= michalis has both algos and code! Even though it is from the late 1980s, it= is still applicable and I've seen used copies for only a few dollars! It i= s good for covering LPC and PARCOR analysis. A lot of the more more modern techniques will require digging into articles= such as those in IEEE Trans. Audio, Speech and Language Processing. Do you= have a special area of interest? IHTH, Clay

The Orfanidis book is available for free download at : http://www.ece.rutgers.edu/~orfanidi/intro2sp It discusses some basic effects: Chorus, Phasers, Reverb and Flanger Cheers, Dave

well, get the DAFx conference stuff. i think that the accepted papers are all online and free. and see what you can get outa https://ccrma.stanford.edu/~jos/ . another nice online document is http://profs.sci.univr.it/~rocchess/SP/sp.pdf also, i would suggest joining the Audio Engineering Society and getting the journal. maybe even pay some money to get unlimited online access to all publications of the AES. and i would investigate the music-dsp mailing list http://music.columbia.edu/cmc/music-dsp/ and check out http://musicdsp.org/ . and then there is this USENET newsgroup called comp.dsp . it has a reasonably high S/N ratio, so asking questions there might be fruitful. -- r b-j rbj@audioimagination.com "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

I have a M. Sc. EE degree so I'm not looking for beginner stuff. Optimally, I am looking for a big book which can be used as a reference. For example: If I want to implement an acoustic echo canceller, a noise suppression algorithm, an equalizer, some audio effect (pitch change, time stretch, phaser, reverb or some other audio effect), the book would provide me with a couple of design descriptions of how that is implemented. It's probably not enough with one book, so I don't mind having to buy several books as long as they cover a wide variety of topics within the audio dsp domain and also have the neccessary depth and detail.

that might be as good of a bet as any other.

cookbooks don't necessarily do that (give details).

what kind of depth do you want? Sophocles Orfanidis wrote a nice textbook: Introduction to Signal Processing which is a good EE text getting into the basics and he uses audio as content examples. now on the other end is: Applications of Digital Signal Processing to Audio and Acoustics; Mark Kahrs, Karlheinz Brandenburg. it's 14 years old. another is: A Digital Signal Processing Primer: With Applications to Digital Audio and Computer Music; Ken Steiglitz and then whatever you can get from Julius Smith. much is online, but you can order paper versions of it. -- r b-j rbj@audioimagination.com "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

I am looking for some (cook)books on advanced audio signal processing,
audio effect algorithms, speech processing algorithms etc. Preferably
something that is up-to-date.

I am thinking about buying the book "DAFX: Digital Audio Effects"

I am looking for books which can improve my understanding and
knowledge about the above topics. I love cookbooks which give detailed
descriptions of how things should be implemented (preferably in C or
MATLAB) because that's how I learn best.

Is there a book which would be considered a "bible" and must-have in
this context? If so, please let me know.
