The present work deals with the synthesis of sounds produced by brass instruments through the direct physical modelling. The purpose is the development of an integrated methodology for the evaluation of the response of a wind instrument taking into account the properties of the surrounding environment. The identification of the frequency response of the resonator and the performing environment is obtained by means of a Boundary Integral Equation approach. The formulation produces the matrix transfer function between the inflow at the input section of the instrument bore and the signal evaluated at an arbitrary location, and can account for the response of any boundary and object present in the surroundings. The reflection function obtained from the above model is coupled to a simplified model of valve, used to represent the excitation mechanism behaviour. The exploited algorithm has demonstrated to be accurate and efficient in offline calculation, and the observed performance discloses the possibility to implement real–time applications.

Abstract

The present work deals with the synthesis of sounds produced by brass instruments through the direct physical modelling. The purpose is the development of an integrated methodology for the evaluation of the response of a wind instrument taking into account the properties of the surrounding environment. The identification of the frequency response of the resonator and the performing environment is obtained by means of a Boundary Integral Equation approach. The formulation produces the matrix transfer function between the inflow at the input section of the instrument bore and the signal evaluated at an arbitrary location, and can account for the response of any boundary and object present in the surroundings. The reflection function obtained from the above model is coupled to a simplified model of valve, used to represent the excitation mechanism behaviour. The exploited algorithm has demonstrated to be accurate and efficient in offline calculation, and the observed performance discloses the possibility to implement real–time applications.
