I am interested in using Max/MSP to synthesize oriental free reed instruments like the sho and sheng. I've used Max/MSP for about 6 months now, but I'm not that clear about where to begin with this. I presume I'd need some kind of analysis of the acoustic and spectral properties of these instruments. I've got a few sound samples, so I'm guessing I could work with analyses of these in something like SND or SPEAR. Any thoughts/advice most welcome.
