Physical Modelling

Sound Production and Manipulation [SPM]  >  Synthesis and Resynthesis Techniques  ]

This area includes any means of synthesizing sound "from scratch" or "first principles" through a mathematical acoustical model, generally of an existing musical instrument. Normally based on models of the manner in which a resonator responds to some form of excitation (i.e. energy input), two frequently encountered examples are Waveguide Synthesis Karplus Strong techniques for the simulation of plucked strings and membrane instruments.
