Mapping is one of the most important aspects of software instruments design. For software instruments, this relation between the user's gestures and synthesis engine parameters has a decisive role in resulting ergonomics, playability and expressive possibilities of the system. The "Lutheries - Acoustique - Musique" team from Institut Jean Le Rond d'Alembert proposes an approach based on a modular software design, based on the use of "Dynamic Intermediate Models", inspired by a multidisciplinary study of musical instruments and their playing.
The models presented here are built with Cycling '74 Max/MSP/Jitter (cycling74.com), and run as instruments in the Meta-Mallette (pucemuse.com).
