Detailed Description

STK basic plucked string class.

This class implements a simple plucked string physical model based on the Karplus-Strong algorithm.

For a more advanced plucked string implementation, see the stk::Twang class.

This is a digital waveguide model, making its use possibly subject to patents held by Stanford University, Yamaha, and others. There exist at least two patents, assigned to Stanford, bearing the names of Karplus and/or Strong.

Member Function Documentation

StkFrames & stk::Plucked::tick ( StkFrames frames,
unsigned int  channel = 0 
)
inlinevirtual

Fill a channel of the StkFrames object with computed outputs.

The channel argument must be less than the number of channels in the StkFrames argument (the first channel is specified by 0). However, range checking is only performed if STK_DEBUG is defined during compilation, in which case an out-of-range value will trigger an StkError exception.

Implements stk::Instrmnt.
