In this study we introduce new methods to design and realize com-putationally efficient models for musical instrument bodies. The methods take into account the time-frequency resolution of the human auditory system. First we present a method where the body response (or the low-frequency-part of it) is represented as a single digital filter structure which(More)
Listening tests were conducted in order to find out the audibility of inharmonicity in musical sounds produced by string instruments, such as the piano or the guitar. The threshold of the audibility of inharmonicity was measured as a function of the inharmonicity coefficient at five fundamental frequencies. It was found that the detection of inharmonicity(More)
Listening experiments were made to measure the detection thresholds for initial pitch glides in string instrument sounds, where a rapid decline of pitch is caused by tension modulation during the attack. Realistic sounding synthetic tones were generated by additive synthesis. The frequency decay of the glide was defined through the overall decay rate of(More)
The effect of inharmonicity on pitch was measured by listening tests at four fundamental frequencies. Inharmonicity was defined in a way typical of string instruments, such as the piano, where all partials are elevated in a systematic way. It was found that the pitch judgment is usually dominated by some other partials than the fundamental; however , with a(More)
