I’m working on piece for hexaphonic guitar using ebow and need to do some onset detection. The audio from the individual strings is basically monophonic but noisy and with some crosstalk from adjacent strings.
The attacks can be very slow.
I’ve looked at few approaches but so far the detection is rather late and some events don’t get detected at all.
He’s a good friend of long-standing and if you mention my name, he’ll be very pro-active and helpful. He’s done considerable work in the area of hexaphonic string output and envelope following (albeit using PD on the software side).
yes, we’ve been in touch and he’s offered me some pointers. I’ve got something working now though the whole patch is a bit flakey.Still, it held together yesterday when I played the guitar piece to an audience for the first time.
Barry Truax was sitting about four feet away from me – so no pressure there then.
