Okay so... a couple weeks back I created a profile on here and put up a question "baffled by T in listing 1.8.1"... that thread has now disappeared and I also lost my account. So.. I'm not sure if the site went down and was restored from backup taken prior to my thread, or if I got kicked off for some reason, perhaps because I posted a code sample against the rules. Anyhow....
I got a pretty good answer to my question in that thread, but as I continue on through the book, the more I get the feeling it's over my head. I thought when I bought it that since I know C, I could just sail off into the land of audio programming. I figured I'd need to review some math, but the more I look at this book the more I feel like I'm sinking. I read other reviews on Amazon from people who sound like they're in the same boat as me and are "getting it", but I keep getting stuck on the math. Not the mathematical operations themselves, mind you - I can understand exponentials and logarithms just fine -- its they "why" and whatnot, that is not explained in this book, left as an exercise for the reader to figure out for themselves. So what I'm wanting to now find is a more "remedial" audio progamming book or reference that is going to hold my hand through the basics of the mathematical representations of audio signals and the like.
Does anyone have any good ideas there? I keep scouring around and cannot find anything.
