Perry Cook and Gary Scavone describe STK as a set of audio signal processing C++ classes and instruments for music synthesis. The scheme counterpart are a set of instrument primarily following the plucked string, bowed string, flute, clarinet and brass families of Physical Models. You can combine these instruments to create programs which make cool sounds using a variety of synthesis techniques.
More on STK
At CCRMA you can copy the file prc95.scm to your /zap directory by issuing the next commands:
Open this file with Xemacs or with your favorite text editor.
Start your STK or rather Physical modeling experimentation with the usual steps for working with SND and scheme
Careful analysis of the code will make you aware of these instruments and their calls:
Also notice the parameters for the scheme function call.
You can listen to the plucked string by typing the following function call in the SND listener:
Try the following plucked sound:
A very long and low clarinet sound might be:
Next, here is a sequence of brass sounds:
In order to make sound you type the following function call on the scheme listener.
