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)
Blowing machines were developed since the early stage of research in musical acoustics because they are necessary for the study of musical instruments. The system under study is based on a previously developed blowing machine dedicated to the study of the physics of wind instruments (trumpet, reed instruments, recorder) for which the blowing pressure was(More)
This paper focuses on the oscillation threshold of single reed instruments. Several characteristics such as blowing pressure at threshold, regime selection, and playing frequency are known to change radically when taking into account the reed dynamics and the flow induced by the reed motion. Previous works have shown interesting tendencies, using analytical(More)
