The Wind Instrument Acoustic Toolkitfor Musical Acoustic Research and Music Instrument Design
This project was started by Antoine Lefebvre at McGill University while
conducting multidisciplinary reasearch in music technology. The objective
is to develop computer-aided wind music instrument design tools. The
computer programs are primarily the result of scientific research and
thus are highly specialized and require an acoustics background to
understand and use properly.
References to the pertinent literature are included in the source code.
Understanding the program generally requires reading the references.
Collaborators are welcome.
The Wind Instrument Acoustic Toolkit software environment is a package of computer programs written in the Python language, useful for researchers in wind instrument musical acoustic and eventually for the wind instrument designer. Current features include:
Download wiat-0.1.0-data.zip This package contains impedance measurement data files and boundary element simulation results. They are used in some of the examples and tests to check the validity of the calculations.
Wiat 0.1.0 released [June 2008]
