Download A multirate, finite-width, bow-string interaction model
In this paper we propose an efficient method to model the amount of bow hair in contact with the string in a physical model of a bowed string instrument.
Download Extended performance techniques for a virtual instrument
In this paper we explore extended techniques for a physical model of a bowed string instrument controlled using the metasaxophone.
Download Modeling high-frequency modes of complex resonators using a waveguide mesh
This paper describes the use of a digital waveguide mesh which provides certain desirable components of the frequency response of the body of an instrument. An application for the violin is illustrated, showing that meshes can be designed to have a modal distribution which is psychoacoustically equivalent to the resonances of the violin body at high frequencies.
Download Expressive Controllers For Bowed String Physical Models
In this paper we propose different approaches to control a real-time physical model of a bowed string instrument. Starting from a commercially available device, we show how to improve the gestural control of the model.
Download Doppler Simulation and the Leslie
An efficient algorithm for simulating the Doppler effect using interpolating and de-interpolating delay lines is described. The Doppler simulator is used to simulate a rotating horn to achieve the Leslie effect. Measurements of a horn from a real Leslie are used to calibrate angle-dependent digital filters which simulate the changing, angle-dependent, frequency response of the rotating horn.
Download Modeling Interactions between Rubbed Dry Surfaces Using an Elasto-Plastic Friction Model
A physically based model of the frictional interaction between dry surfaces is presented. The paper reviews a number of static and dynamic friction models, and discusses numerical techniques for the accurate and efficient numerical implementation of a dynamic elasto-plastic model. An application to the bowed string is provided, and the resulting simulations are compared to recent results from the literature.
Download Modeling Bowl Resonators Using Circular Waveguide Networks
We propose efficient implementations of a glass harmonica and a Tibetan bowl using circular digital waveguide networks. Circular networks provide a physically meaningful representation of bowl resonators. Just like the real instruments, both models can be either struck or rubbed using a hard mallet, a violin bow, or a wet finger.
Download Real-Time Spatial Processing and Transformations of a Singing Bowl
We propose different real-time spatial-modal manipulations of a physical model of a singing bowl. The high number of degrees of freedom in the model, combined with spatial processing algorithms, provides the possibility of obtaining rich and expressive transformations.
Download Spatio-Operational Spectral (S.O.S.) Synthesis
We propose an approach to digital audio effects using recombinant spatialization for signal processing. This technique, which we call Spatio-Operational Spectral Synthesis (SOS), relies on recent theories of auditory perception. The perceptual spatial phenomenon of objecthood is explored as an expressive musical tool.
Download The voice of the dragon: A physical model of a rotating corrugated tube
When an unsmooth flexible tube rotates, rich tones are produced. We propose a physical model that simulates this behavior. The tube is modeled as an open-ended organ pipe blown by an air stream pumped by a rotationally induced pressure which follows Bernoulli’s principle.
