Abstract

Modal active control enables modifications of the damping and the frequencies of the different resonances of a system. A self-sustained oscillating wind instrument is modelled as a disturbance coupled to a resonator through a non-linear coupling. The aim of this study is to present simulations of modal active control applied to a modeled simplified self-sustained oscillating wind instrument (e.g. a cylindrical tube coupled to a reed, which is considered to approximate a simplified clarinet), incorporating collocated speaker, microphone and a reed. The next goal will be to apply this control experimentally and to test it with musicians.
