Bowed String Modeling
A Digital Waveguide Scattering Approach
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 has developed
a nonlinear commuted synthesis approach to bowed-string synthesis
, with code examples provided.
