Csound Manual

About This Manual

From 1996 to 2001, I maintained the Canonical Csound Manual. I have not updated this manual since March, 2001 (Csound Version 4.10).  I'm pretty sure much of the information it contains is still accurate, but it will not have any of the newer opcodes or other improvements to Csound, since version 4.10.

I only offer this version of the manual here for the sake of historical completeness, and because I've had a few people ask for it.

For current manuals, see the Csounds.com manuals page.

Happy Csounding!
