Traguisma – the TRAnsient GUItar State MAchine. Or, if you prefer the official title: ‘Algorithms for Combined Sound Analysis and Synthesis and their Implementation in a Multi-Processor Environment’. This was to become a ‘Diplom-Informatiker’, my graduation project. In short it was about improving guitar synthesizers, with a focus on the attack phases of a pluck. Implemented on CNMAT’s multi-DSP box Reson8.
