wguide1

wguide1 — A simple waveguide model consisting of one delay-line and one first-order lowpass filter.

Description

A simple waveguide model consisting of one delay-line and one first-order lowpass filter.

Syntax

ares wguide1 asig, xfreq, kcutoff, kfeedback

Performance

asig -- the input of excitation noise.

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

kcutoff -- the filter cutoff frequency in Hz.

kfeedback -- the feedback factor.

wguide1 is the most elemental waveguide model, consisting of one delay-line and one first-order lowpass filter.

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.

Examples

Here is an example of the wguide1 opcode. It uses the file wguide1.csd.
