Sound emergence in clarinetlike instruments is investigated in terms of instability of the static regime. Various models of reed-bore coupling are considered, from the pioneering work of Wilson and Beavers ["Operating modes of the clarinet," J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 56, 653-658 (1974)] to more recent modeling including viscothermal bore losses and vena contracta(More)
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)
This article proposes a characterization of the double reed in quasistatic regimes. The nonlinear relation between the pressure drop, deltap, in the double reed and the volume flow crossing it, q, is measured for slow variations of these variables. The volume flow is determined from the pressure drop in a diaphragm replacing the instrument's bore.(More)
