New Book "Computational Thinking through Modular Synthesis

Maybe a bit basic for some of the old wizards in the community but “Computational Thinking” is a new angle on the subject. It includes examples implemented in a web-based version of Cardinal (!)

From the introduction:

Computational thinking creates runnable models to solve a problem or answer a question. Models can be scientific models (e.g. meteorology), statistical models (e.g. statistics/data science), computation models (computer science), and perhaps other kinds of models.

How are they connected? Modular involves computational thinking when we:

  • Simulate an instrument by reverse engineering its sound
  • Create new sounds based on models of signal processing

Thanks for posting that. Interesting and different.

It is good to see more books coming out about modular, even if many of them are self-published (and often expensive!).
