This may be heresy on a list devoted to SAOL, but for my money ($50 US or
thereabouts) I would go with "The CSound Book"! It comes with two CDs, and
just about every important synthesis technique is described in great detail
with CSound instruments. You will have to translated the CSound instruments
to SAOL, of course, but the principles are the same.
