Bowed String Modeling
The Bow-String Interaction: A Scattering
The Body Model
Methods were previously discussed for modeling the string instrument body.
A digital filter representation of a string instrument body must be of high order given the complicated nature of its spectral ``signature''.
Commuted synthesis offers an efficient means for making use of a measured or synthesized body impulse response in plucked or struck string synthesis.
Commuted synthesis, however, is possible only with linear systems.
Julius Smith developed a linear system approach to bowed-string synthesis which is excited by a periodic excitation function, thus allowing a commuted-synthesis approach.
