first I want to apologize that I had to post this book tip here - honestly.
I got no response from Northernsounds so far for an official add, so please
be patient (@Admin, please contact me via e-mail, stored in my profile!).
I just want to announce a new book, which has been released:
The Composerís Approach Volume 1 - Principles on Room Acoustics and Techniques for Digital Orchestras
It is mainly about how to place dry samples in virtual room.
Starting point are information about room acoustics, and why we can locate a sound source in a room quite well.
Further on it is described how to use this knowledge within a sequencer.
Here is the offical product description:
