EE 329: Laboratory 5
In this lab
we will gain an understanding
filters that are used to generate the sound of plucked string
instruments in computer music.
We will also implement the filters in real-time, and
if all goes well
be able to play a musical scale or a song when we are finished.
The notes that we will follow to learn about these filters
is Chapter 6 in the book
A DSP Primer, with Applications to Digital Audio and
Computer Music by K. Steiglitz.
These filters are interesting and
will give us practice in working with Z transforms and discrete-time
In addition, they provide a nice
illustration of how three very simple digital
filters can be combined to create a very versatile tool
for computer music.
- I would suggest that you first experiment with the
plucked string instrument in Matlab.
I will demonstrate some files that I created.
Then for the real-time implementation, we can use Simulink
or a C program.
It may be necessary to write a C program if the Simulink
program runs too slowly.
More details will be provided during lab and during class next
Please feel free to ask me any questions throughout this
Do not allow your lack of experience with the dSPACE equipment
or Matlab to hold you up -- just tell me what you'd like to
do, and I'll help.
Thank you and have fun!!
