AbstractMusical instruments synthesis techniques can be roughly classified into Physical and Spectral models. Physical models try to model the instrument's sound production mechanism and Spectral models basically consist on spectral transformation and concatenation of recorded samples. Both focus on the sound of the instrument, but in general they forget about the gestural interaction between performer and instrument during a performance. This work presents a spectral model centered in performance control gestures, that has some characteristics inspired in physical models.
