MetadataShow full item record
The paper describes a project whose goal was to enable users realistically interact with a 3D virtual model of a historical musical instrument – the clavichord attributed to the famous 18th century maker. A challenge of enabling the user to play the virtual copy of the instrument was resolved by using the dynamic MIDI keyboard. The prerecorded clavichord sound samples are controlled by the software using the MIDI commands. Playing the real keyboard is synchronized with the movement of virtual keys and other parts of sound generating mechanism. The sound effects, characteristic for the clavichord Tragen der Tonne and Bebung may be imitated, which gives the user the impression of playing the real instrument.
