Enhanced Wave-Based Modelling of Musical Strings. Part 1: Plucked Strings
A physically-accurate time-domain model for a plucked musical string is developed. The model incorporates detailed dispersion and damping behaviour measured from cello strings, and a detailed description of body response measured from a cello body. The resulting model is validated against measured pizzicato notes using the same strings and cello, and good accuracy is demonstrated. The model is developed in a form that makes extension to the case of a bowed string very straightforward.
