Hi Will,

I will be getting your new book "Designing Audio Effect Plugins in C++ 2nd Edition" and was wondering if there is any extra info in your other book "Designing Software Synthesizer Plug-Ins in C++" that came out in 2014.

Thanks for your time,

Jon R.

Hi Jon

I am actually planning on a 2nd edition of the Synth book which will act more of a "Part 2" to the new FX book release. The print cycle is slow, so that isn't going to happen instantaneously. The Synth book has only synth objects, and there is a bit of overlap - the 2nd Ed FX book contains a few of the virtual analog filters that the Synth book demonstrates. But, there are no other FX-type of objects, except for a delay module that is identical to one in the new book. Another issue is that the Synth book projects do not use a unified GUI designer across the APIs (I had not yet invented ASPiK) so I am looking forward to updating it.

Hope that helps,


Jon R.
