In this lab sequence, we will make ``virtual stringed instruments,'' starting from a very simple case (the Karplus-Strong digitar algorithm) and working up to instruments of practical complexity. All of the examples can be classified as digital waveguide instruments, although the earliest algorithms were originally derived under different paradigms, as will be noted.
