Virtual Acoustic Musical Instruments : Review and Update

  title={Virtual Acoustic Musical Instruments : Review and Update},
  author={Julius O. Smith},
This article1 gives an overview of selected developments in musical sound synthesis based on physical models of musical instruments—sometimes called “virtual acoustic” sound synthesis. Emphasis is placed on techniques which yield the highest playability and sound quality in real time at a reasonable computational expense.
