Handheld mobile computing devices are now ubiquitous. These devices are powerful, connected and equipped with a variety of sensors. Their pervasiveness has created an opportunity to realize parametrically controlled, physically modeled, virtual musical instruments. moForte inc was founded to develop a line of sonic and musical applications for handheld devices. We developed the "moForte Guitar Stack" which models the guitar family of instruments. This stack has been used to used to develop applications for mobile devices.
We give an overview of the history of physical modeling with many sound examples, and then brief overview of the current state of modeling on mobile devices using a few apps based on the moForte Guitar Stack.
