In this paper, a novel research tool, which allows real-time implementation and evaluation of sound synthesis of musical instrument, is described. The tool is a PC-based application and allows the user to evaluate the effects of parameter changes on the sound quality in an intuitive manner. Tuning makes use of a Genetic Algorithm (GA) technique. Flute and plucked string modeling examples are used to illustrate the capabilities of the tool.
