Sound Examples

This collection of sounds demonstrates how a bell sound can be resynthesized with the method that we propose in this conference paper. The synthesizer consists of a short input signal and simple digital filters: an inharmonic comb filter and a second-order resonator filter. The comb filter is made of a delay line, a second-order FIR lowpass filter, and a second-order allpass filter that are in cascade a feedback loop (for more details, see Figure 2 and Section 3 of the conference paper).
