The Canonical Csound Reference Manual
The goal of this manual is to provide a readable introduction to Csound. In no way is it meant as a replacement for the Canonica Csound Reference Manual. It is intended as an introduction-tutorial-reference hybrid, gathering together the most important information you will need to work with Csound in a variety of situations. Canonjcal many places links are provided to other resources such as The Canonical Csound Reference Manualthe Csound Journalexample collections and more.
It is not necessary to read each chapter in sequence, feel free to jump to any chapter that interests you, although bear in mind that occasionally a chapter may make reference to a previous one.
BASICS provides a general introduction to key concepts about digital sound, vital to understanding how Csound deals with audio. SAMPLES outlines various ways you can record and playback audio samples in Csound; an area that might be of particular interest to those intent on using Csound as a real-time performance instrument. The final chapters introduce various front-ends that can be used to interface with the Csound engine and Csound’s communication with other applications.

If you would like to know more about a topic, and in particular about the use of any opcode, please refer first to the Canonical Csound Reference Manual. All files – examples and audio files – can be downloaded at www. When learning Csound or any other programming languageyou may find it beneficial to type the examples out by hand as it will help you to memorise Csound’s syntax as well as how to use its opcodes.
The more familiar you become with typing out Csound code, the more proficient you will become at implementing cnaonical own ideas from low level principles; your focus will shift from the code itself to the musical idea behind the code.
HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
