(13 Ratings)
This book does much more than just teaching you how to use basic tools (such as volume, panning, EQ, gates, compressors, delay, reverb, etc.) to get an OK mix. It also guides you through the... More > relationships – some simple, some complex – that exist between the dimensions of sound and the dimensions of space. It gives you the confidence to transform your OK mixes into great mixes. Although not light on theory, it has a practical emphasis, with links to archives containing some 40 or so project files, with step by step examples. These help you put your knowledge into practice. "Wow! So much good stuff - from mindbending advanced techniques to solid sensible advice, this guide should have a positive effect on just about anybody interested in mixing (and especially those using REAPER)!" - Justin Frankel, Cockos Inc, developer of REAPER.

The Performance of Open Source Applications By Tavish Armstrong
eBook (PDF): $5.99
Download immediately.
In 1974, Donald Knuth wrote, "We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time: premature optimization is the root of all evil." With computers available now that are... More > millions of times faster than those available then, today's programmers have even less reason to worry about shaving cycles and saving bytes than those a generation ago. But "less" isn't "none": every once in a while, squeezing the last ounce of performance out of the machine really does matter. This book is written by over a dozen developers who have grappled with slow code, memory leaks, or uncontrollable latency in open source software. They share their mistakes and successes, and give the reader an over-the-shoulder view of how they approached their specific challenges. With examples from bioinformatics research code to web browsers, the solutions are as varied as the problems. This book will help junior and senior developers alike understand how their colleagues think about performance.< Less

And what did their builders learn during their development? In answering these questions, the contributors to this book provide unique insights into how they think.< Less

Sub-method Structural and Behavioral Reflection By Marcus Denker
Paperback: $18.48
Ships in 3-5 business days
Computational reflection is a fundamental mechanism in object oriented languages. Reflection has proved useful in many contexts, such as in the design of development environments, language extension,... More > and the dynamic, unanticipated adaptation of running systems We identify three problems with the current approach to reflection in object oriented languages: partial behavioral reflection needs to be anticipated, structural reflection is limited to the granularity of a method, and behavioral reflection cannot be applied to the whole system. To address these problems, we extend structural reflection to cover sub-method elements and present how sub-method structural reflection supports unanticipated partial behavioral reflection. We add the concept of context to represent meta-level execution and show how this allows behavioral reflection to be applied even to system classes.< Less

This volume, divided in two parts, provides a strong foundation for hashing, hash functions, and their application in the context of software development. While the programming language used in this... More > book is Smalltalk, the information provided applies to other programming languages as well. The first part develops hashing and hash functions from first principles. The behavior characteristics required of hash functions are examined in detail. A thorough description of how hash functions are constructed follows, complete with a rich survey of existing hash functions. However, existing hash functions are often inappropriate for the task at hand. To address this problem, the second part shows how to build novel hash functions that are both efficient and highly effective for the range of data types that occur in practice. The book includes over 230 exercises. Together with their answers, provided in an appendix, these exercises further develop the material in both familiar and new ways.< Less
