Student Forum Reverse-engineering vs physical modelling of real sounds [project idea]

You need to be logged in to post in this topic.
  1. Hey. I've had this idea for a project which has been gestating for a while, so just putting out some feelers in case anyone fancies it.

    It basically involves reverse engineering a sound based on certain key features eg strong harmonics, formants etc, using additive and/or subtractive synthesis. Next would be to learn about the actual way the sound is produced in real life, and try to create a physical model of that, comparing the result to the reverse engineered sound for trueness to the real sound, computational efficiency etc.

    I was thinking of looking at Mongolian/Tuvan throat singing as an interesting real-life sound :-)Thoughts?

  2. I just submitted an Engineering assignment which was using Matlab to recreate speech using fundamental pitch and formant frequencies. I don't know how much research you've already done, but I'd be happy to discuss ideas if it helps. However, I don't think I would want to work on it as my own project. I didn't particularly enjoy the assignment...

  3. Hey. Thanks! I've not done much research on that aspect of it apart from stealing someone elses supercollider code which does it. If I end up doing this project I'd be interested to know how you got on with that regardless of whether I end up being able to do this as part of the module or just on my own..
