Reed Valve Modeling

Wind instruments are ``driven'' by either pressure- or velocity-controlled valves. In this section we focus on the modeling of pressure-controlled valves, such as the clarinet reed and the brass player's lips. While most of the focus here is on the reed valve, much of the analysis can be equally applied to the lip mechanism as well.
