Physically Based Parametric
Sound Synthesis and Control
This tutorial on models and techniques for
parametric digital synthesis of sound focused
on well-founded methods and techniques
for synthesis of real-world interactive sound effects, using parametric computational models. Demonstrations illustrated the use of real-time sound synthesis and control.
Familiarity with basic
physics, audio sampling and quantization,
and the relationship between the time (waveform) and frequency (spectrum) domains.
Sound in the time domain (the wave equation); Eigenmodes and spectral models; sines+noise, sines+noise+transients, and modal models; pseudo-physical control of spectral models,
one-dimensional and two-dimensional physical models (waveguides); friction, particle models, wavelets, and granular models; statistical
models and hybrids.
