A String Excitation Model For Audio Synthesis Of Bowed String Instruments

This disclosure describes an audio synthesis model for the excitation of the strings of a musical string instrument by a bow. Inspired by research results pertaining to block-sliding motion, it superimposes regular pulse trains in a self-similar manner. The result is perturbed randomly to account for natural variations and thereby yields a statistically self-similar pulse-train.

What we are trying to do?

We are attempting to mobilize the creativity and innovative capacities of the Linux and broader open source community to codify the universe of preexisting inventions in defensive publications that upon publication in the IP.COM database will immediately serve as effective prior art that prevents anyone from having a patent issued that claims inventions that have already been document in a defensive publication. In addition to creating a vehicle to utilize this highly effective form of IP rights management for known inventions, it is hoped that the community will use defensive publications as a means of codifying future inventions should the inventors prefer not to make their invention the subject of a patent disclosure and application.
