Computational Models for Common Pipa Techniques

The digitalization of Chinese traditional Instruments is still in its infancy. Most synthesizers, though equipped with rich sample libraries, lack basic control models to intimate common performance techniques. In this paper, taking Pipa as an example, we have developed a series of computational models for common performance techniques by an "analysis-by-synthesis" method, leading to more realistic synthesized Pipa performances.
