Name: [ mini-project ] Vibraphone virtual musical instrument (VMI) in LabVIEW
ID: m15498
Language: English (en)
Summary: The vibraphone percussion instrument can be well-modeled by a sinusoidal oscillator, an attack-decay envelope with a short attack and a long decay, and a low-frequency sinusoidal amplitude modulation. In this mini-project, develop code to model the vibraphone as a LabVIEW "virtual musical instrument" (VMI) that can be "played" by a MIDI music file.
