NVM – a Modular Real-Time Physical Modeling Synthesis System for MSP


Richard Dudas


NVM is a modular physical modeling synthesis system based on modal synthesis and implemented as a suite of external objects for MSP. There are two basic types of such objects: those which represent vibrating physical bodies, and those which establish physical connections between them. Control information is provided via MSP audio-rate signals.
