Detailed Description

STK faux conical bore reed instrument class.

This class implements a "hybrid" digital waveguide instrument that can generate a variety of wind-like sounds. It has also been referred to as the "blowed string" model. The waveguide section is essentially that of a string, with one rigid and one lossy termination. The non-linear function is a reed table. The string can be "blown" at any point between the terminations, though just as with strings, it is impossible to excite the system at either end. If the excitation is placed at the string mid-point, the sound is that of a clarinet. At points closer to the "bridge", the sound is closer to that of a saxophone. See Scavone (2002) for more details.

This is a digital waveguide model, making its use possibly subject to patents held by Stanford University, Yamaha, and others.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

stk::Saxofony::Saxofony ( StkFloat  lowestFrequency)

Class constructor, taking the lowest desired playing frequency.

An StkError will be thrown if the rawwave path is incorrectly set.

Member Function Documentation

StkFrames & stk::Saxofony::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.
