Device Overview

Name/Version: Karplus Strong Poly 1.0
Author: Hacktive  
Description: New FREE Instrument!


Karplus–Strong string synthesis is a method of physical modelling synthesis that loops a short waveform through a filtered delay line to simulate the sound of a hammered or plucked string or some types of percussion.
Alexander Strong invented the algorithm, and Kevin Karplus did the first analysis of how it worked. Together they developed software and hardware implementations of the algorithm, including a custom VLSI chip. They named the algorithm "Digitar" synthesis, as a portmanteau for "digital guitar".

This device was made following the tutorial "Delicious Max/MSP Tutorial 1: Karplus-Strong" by our good buddy Sam (dude837):
