The authors have developed efficient DSP algorithms for real-time synthesis of plucked string instruments, such as the acoustic guitar, mandolin, and kantele-a traditional Finnish zither. The paper discusses how nonlinear effects due to string terminations can be incorporated in the discrete-time models and describes the implementation using multirate techniques. Several approaches to control the physical model are described.
