January 22, 2014 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.
