Series Modern acoustics and signal processing
Modern acoustics and signal processing.
Contents Analysis and Synthesis of Musical Instrument Sounds; Fundamental Frequency Tracking and Applications to Musical Signal Analysis; Beyond Traditional Sampling Synthesis: Real-Time Timbre Morphing Using Additive Synthesis; A Compact and Malleable Sines+Transients+Noise Model for Sound; Spectral Envelopes and Additive + Residual Analysis/Synthesis; A Comparison of Wavetable and FM Data Reduction Methods for Resynthesis of Musical Sounds; The Effect of Dynamic Acoustical Features on Musical Timbre; Mental Representation of the Timbre of Complex Sounds
Summary Analysis, Synthesis, and Perception of Musical Sounds contains a detailed treatment of basic methods for analysis and synthesis of musical sounds, including the phase vocoder method, the McAulay-Quatieri frequency-tracking method, the constant-Q transform, and methods for pitch tracking with several examples shown. Various aspects of musical sound spectra such as spectral envelope, spectral centroid, spectral flux, and spectral irregularity are defined and discussed. One chapter is devoted to the control and synthesis of spectral envelopes. Two advanced methods of analysis/synthesis are given: "Sines Plus Transients Plus Noise" and "Spectrotemporal Reassignment" are covered. Methods for timbre morphing are given. The last two chapters discuss the perception of musical sounds based on discrimination and multidimensional scaling timbre models
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 313-319) and index
