In this study we introduce new methods to design and realize computationally 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 is(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)
This paper describes the results of subjective evaluation of auralization by listening tests. The task was to compare real-head recorded and auralized sound samples. The evaluation process as well as the creation of soundtracks are briefly reviewed. The listening test procedure is presented along with the analyzed results of a case study. They show that(More)
The effect of inharmonicity on pitch was measured by listening tests at five 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 partial than the fundamental; however, with a(More)
