In this paper, we deal with the inversion of a physical model of a trumpet, i.e. how should the player control the model in order to obtain a given sound ? After having shown that the inversion is a ill-posed problem, we add a physically based constraint which leads to a physically pertinent solution .
For several years, we have been developing and studying computer-simulated models of brass instruments including the player's lips. We demonstrate here such a physical model. It is played in real-time with MIDI events. We present recent developments concerning both physical functioning and real-time controls. They result in great improvements of sound… (More)
Combinig the harmonic balance method (HBM) and a continuation method is a well-known technique to follow the periodic solutions of dynamical systems when a control parameter is varied. However, since deriving the algebraic system containing the Fourier coefficients can be a highly cumbersome procedure, the classical HBM is often limited to polynomial… (More)
A new estimation technique is proposed which computes the control parameters of a physical model of a trumpet in order to simulate a recording of a real instrument. First, the physical constraints of the instrument and the prior knowledge about how a player controls a trumpet are described. This is taken into account during the design of the data set and… (More)
