wgflute

wgflute — Creates a tone similar to a flute.

Description

Audio output is a tone similar to a flute, using a physical model developed from Perry Cook, but re-coded for Csound.

Syntax

ares wgflute kamp, kfreq, kjet, iatt, idetk, kngain, kvibf, kvamp, ifn \
      [, iminfreq] [, ijetrf] [, iendrf]

Initialization

iatt -- time in seconds to reach full blowing pressure. 0.1 seems to correspond to reasonable playing.

idetk -- time in seconds taken to stop blowing. 0.1 is a smooth ending

ifn -- table of shape of vibrato, usually a sine table, created by a function

iminfreq (optional) -- lowest frequency at which the instrument will play. If it is omitted it is taken to be the same as the initial kfreq. If iminfreq is negative, initialization will be skipped.

ijetrf (optional, default=0.5) -- amount of reflection in the breath jet that powers the flute. Default value is 0.5.

iendrf (optional, default=0.5) -- reflection coefficient of the breath jet. Default value is 0.5. Both ijetrf and iendrf are used in the calculation of the pressure differential.

Performance

kamp -- Amplitude of note.

kfreq -- Frequency of note played. While it can be varied in performance, I have not tried it.

kjet -- a parameter controlling the air jet. Values should be positive, and about 0.3. The useful range is approximately 0.08 to 0.56.

kngain -- amplitude of the noise component, about 0 to 0.5

kvibf -- frequency of vibrato in Hertz. Suggested range is 0 to 12

kvamp -- amplitude of the vibrato

Examples

Here is an example of the wgflute opcode. It uses the file wgflute.csd.
