Abstract

This work studies the use of signal-driven synthesis algorithms applied to an augmented guitar. A robust sub-octave generator, partially modeled after a classic audio-driven monophonic guitar synthesizer design of the 1970s is presented. The performance of the proposed system is evaluated within the context of an augmented active guitar with an actuated sound box. Results of the evaluation show that the design represents an exciting augmentation for the instrument, as it radically transforms the sound of the electric guitar while remaining responsive to the full range of the guitar playing gestures.
