# A sound analysis/synthesis system based on a deterministic plus stochastic decomposition

@inproceedings{Serra1990ASA, title={A sound analysis/synthesis system based on a deterministic plus stochastic decomposition}, author={X. Serra and Jacqui Smith and A. Aydin}, year={1990} }

When generating musical sound on a digital computer, it is important to have a good model whose parameters provide a rich source of meaningful sound transformations. Three basic model types are used widely today for musical sound generation: instrument models, spectrum models, and abstract models. Instrument models attempt to parameterize a sound at its source, such as a violin, clarinet, or vocal tract. Spectrum models attempt to parameterize a sound at the basilar membrane of the ear… Expand
