A physical modeling synthesizer/effects processor
This is a modification of Gabriel Mulzer's modal synthesizer, uploaded by request.
Modal synthesis is a method using bands to create sounds something like those produced by bar percussion instruments, although the method can be generalized to dozens of other sounds.
I made several modifications to make this instrument (relatively) easy to understand, easy to program, and easy to customize. It can receive audio in information or use samples so you can customize the excitation source completely. For example, if you run drum loops through it, you can make them sound like bells and gongs, which is pretty cool if you ask me.
Any suggestions or comments for improvement would be greatly appreciated.
The latest upload now includes another instrument that is a lot like the bwonngg, except it uses additive sinewave synthesis rather that bands. It's interesting as a comparison, and is also good for bell-like sounds.
