The Audio Programming Book – Ed. Boulanger, Lazzarini

I was very excited to hear today that “The Audio Programming Book” edited by Richard Boulanger and Victor Lazzarini is now available for pre-order!

This book has certainly been a long time in the making, and I’m very proud to have been a contributor of two chapters (one in print, “Modeling Orchestral Composition”, and one on the DVD, “Developing Music Software Interfaces”).  I also would like to thank Dr. B and Victor for their amazing work as editors, as well as the other authors for contributing such wonderful material.  I am excited that the book will be available soon and hope that the contributions I made as well as those of my fellow contributors help out those working to understand and get into audio programming!


  1. Hi Steven,
    I’m wondering if you know of a site, or a forum, where corrections and questions about this book will be published. I’ve run in to a handful of compilation issues with the sample code already and I’m only in Chapter 2. Not too surprising for a first edition, but I haven’t been able to find any resources online to help me solve my issues.


  2. Hi Evan,

    I do not know if there is any errata page setup as of yet. My best guess would be to email Dr. Boulanger or Dr. Lazzarini, or perhaps look to see if there is anything on the MIT site (I did a quick look but did not see anything myself).

    Otherwise, I do know that Jacob Joaquin setup an audio programming group on Noisepages here. It does seem to have a number of members now and I’m sure you would get some good discussion there.

    Best of luck with the book and hope you enjoy it!
