guiro

guiro — Semi-physical model of a guiro sound.

Description

guiro is a semi-physical model of a guiro sound. It is one of the PhISEM percussion opcodes. PhISEM (Physically Informed Stochastic Event Modeling) is an algorithmic approach for simulating collisions of multiple independent sound producing objects.

Syntax

ares guiro kamp, idettack [, inum] [, idamp] [, imaxshake] [, ifreq] [, ifreq1]

Initialization

idettack -- period of time over which all sound is stopped

inum (optional) -- The number of beads, teeth, bells, timbrels, etc. If zero, the default value is 128.

idamp (optional) -- the damping factor of the instrument. Not used.

imaxshake (optional, default=0) -- amount of energy to add back into the system. The value should be in range 0 to 1.

ifreq (optional) -- the main resonant frequency. The default value is 2500 Hz.

ifreq1 (optional) -- the first resonant frequency. Default value here is 4000 Hz

Performance

kamp -- Amplitude of output. Note: As these instruments are stochastic, this is only an approximation.

Examples

Here is an example of the guiro opcode. It uses the file guiro.csd.
