a post at FlipMu on a book about using the JUCE library for C++. I've been wanting to jump into JUCE as a way of building compiled instruments for non-Reaktor users. Not that I'll ever stop using and building in Reaktor - but I'd like to reach out to people who aren't "of the body" as they say on Beta III.
Having missed the deadline to win a copy, I looked up the publisher's website and discovered a giant sale in progress - all books and videos are $5! I immediately grabbed Getting started with JUCE and am now eyeing these guys:
Mapping and Visualization with SuperCollider
Multimedia Programming with Pure Data
Mastering openFrameworks: Creative Coding Demystified
The SuperCollider book is especially interesting, as it has chapters on synthesizing waveforms from data. Unusually, it's more oriented to visuals than audio, but the math and programming principles still apply to the language, and it covers stuff the free / online tutorials don't.
