This paper introduces a fully automated plucking apparatus for stringed instruments. The basic idea of the proposed mechanism is to make use of the constant tensile strength of bare wires. It defines the plucking intensity of a clasped string by pulling the wire until it breaks. The main components of the apparatus are bare wires for the string plucking,(More)
This paper introduces a method for real-time selective root finding from linear prediction (LP) coefficients using a combination of spectral peak picking and complex contour integration (CI). The proposed method locates roots within predefined areas of the complex z-plane, for instance roots which correspond to formants while other roots are ignored. It(More)
