Recurrent Neural-Network-Based Physical Model for the Chin and Other Plucked-String Instruments
A new physical model with neural networks is presented. The structure of the network is designed for the analysis of plucked-string instruments, and this network is also used as the corresponding synthesis engine. The proposed approach also provides a general and automatic way of determining suitable synthesis parameters by using a supervised neural network training algorithm with recorded sounds of a specific played instrument as the training vector. This is a general method and can be used for any plucked-string instrument. A traditional Chinese plucked-string instrument, called the Chin, is used as the target instrument to demonstrate this new synthesis method.
