Abstract

The vibration of strings in musical instruments depends not only on their geometry and material but also on their fixing at the ends of the string. In physical terms it is described by impedance boundary conditions. This contribution presents a functional transformation model for a vibrating string which is coupled to an external boundary circuit. Delay-free loops in the synthesis algorithm are avoided by a state-space formulation. The value of the boundary impedance can be adjusted without altering the core synthesis algorithm.
