Abstract

The Brass project aims to deliver software virtual musical instruments (trumpet, trombone, tenor saxophone) based on physical modelling. This requires to work on some aspects of the playability of the models so that they can be played in real time through a simple keyboard : better control of the attacks, automatic tuning, humanization.
