wguide2

wguide2 — A model of beaten plate consisting of two parallel delay-lines and two first-order lowpass filters.

Description

A model of beaten plate consisting of two parallel delay-lines and two first-order lowpass filters.

Syntax

ares wguide2 asig, xfreq1, xfreq2, kcutoff1, kcutoff2, \
      kfeedback1, kfeedback2

Performance

asig -- the input of excitation noise

xfreq1, xfreq2 -- the frequency (i.e. the inverse of delay time) Changed to x-rate in Csound version 3.59.

kcutoff1, kcutoff2 -- the filter cutoff frequency in Hz.

kfeedback1, kfeedback2 -- the feedback factor

wguide2 is a model of beaten plate consisting of two parallel delay-lines and two first-order lowpass filters. The two feedback lines are mixed and sent to the delay again each cycle.

Implementing waveguide algorithms as opcodes, instead of orc instruments, allows the user to set kr different than sr, allowing better performance particulary when using real-time.

[Note] Note

As a rule of thumb, to avoid making wguide2 unstable, the sum of the two feedback values should be below 0.5.

Examples

Here is an example of the wguide2 opcode. It uses the file wguide2.csd.
