Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR WAKING-UP VIOLIN AND OTHER STRING INSTRUMENTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR RÉVEILLER UN VIOLON ET D'AUTRES INSTRUMENTS À CORDES
Abstract:
(EN) Waking-up a violin or other instrument by determining naturally resonating features of a particular instrument by applying tones and analyzing the instrument' s responses, and then applying vibrations (e.g., continuously and/or in patterns, such as alternating on/off, staccato, etc.) corresponding to the most responsive (resonant) portions of the instrument's responses (e.g., peaks of the analyzed instrument' s response) fully breaking in the various parts of the instrument. The applied vibrations are continued until the instrument's amplitude response plateaus.
(FR) L'invention concerne le réveil d'un violon ou d'un autre instrument en déterminant des caractéristiques de résonance naturelle d'un instrument particulier en appliquant des tonalités et en analysant les réponses de l'instrument, puis en appliquant des vibrations (par exemple, en continu et/ou en motifs, par exemple en alternance marche/arrêt, staccato, etc.) correspondant aux parties les plus sensibles (résonantes) des réponses de l'instrument (par exemple, des pics de la réponse de l'instrument analysé) pénétrant complètement dans les diverses parties de l'instrument. Les vibrations appliquées se poursuivent jusqu'aux plateaux de réponse d'amplitude de l'instrument.
