This review is from: BasicSynth (Paperback)
Daniel Mitchell's book is first rate.
But you will need to be up to speed on C++ (or something similar) to get the best from it.
That's not compulsory, and you could (as I did decades back with another book) use his examples to get a feel for the language.
If you can code for an Arduino, you are half-way there, so it's far from impossible, and the examples are very well described.
If you already do some coding, this is a Rosetta Stone for getting started in the Digital Signal Processing of musical instrument synthesis. Respect!
I'm an analogue hardware synthesist from the 1970s who usually struggles with 'object oriented' coding and prefers assembler, but I found this very readable and extremely useful, as well as reasonably priced.
Highly recommended for those with a keen interest in this topic, and the ability to get their heads around it.

Really well written and a great insight in to the dark art of programming soft synths! Definitely a buy I did not regret.
