As some of you know, I've been trying to model sympathetic resonance as a new feature in my sample libraries. It's been an interesting process and I've learned alot by just trying. I've finally got the keyboard and pedal behavior working somewhat reliably, so I can now begin to optimize the harmonics to mimic real recordings of the piano that I sampled. I'm basically doing what Pianoteq does, but doing it only for the SR.
Before I take a deeper dive into optimizing the SR for the Steinway B, can you tell the difference between my rough model and the real thing?
One recording is me playing the real Steinway (holding an open C and striking an F, and then G)
The other is a rendering of the sample instrument (the attacks are samples played back) and the sustained sound are triggered sine waves (modeled).
Which do you think is which?
