1
Analysis of plucked sound signals using the Prony method Ye Lu

2
Introduction Physical Modelling ----Digital Waveguide Synthesis ----Formant Synthesis ----Finite element Methods Plucked string instruments ----Karplus-Strong Algorithm

3
Prony Method developed by Gaspard Riche de Prony in 1795 extracts valuable information from a uniformly sampled signal and builds a series of damped complex exponentials or sinusoids

4
Prony Method

5
Fourier Series vs Prony Analysis Non-parametric -- Parametric undamped complex exponentials -- damped complex exponentials amplitude, phase and frequency -- amplitude, phase, frequency and damping coefficients

Implementation in Matlab x=(2*rand(Time,1)-1); for i=N+1:Time x(i)=0; end for i=1:N y(i)=x(i); end y(N+1)=x(1); for i=N+2:Time y(i)=x(i)+0.5*(y(i-N)+y(i-N-1)); end

12
Three Steps 1. Solve linear prediction model, which is constructed by the observed data set

13
Three steps 2. Find Roots of charactreristic polynomial formed from the linear prediction coefficients

14
Three steps 3. Solve the original set of linear equations to yield the estimates of the exponential amplitude and sinusoidal phase

15
Implementation in Matlab y=zeros(1,N); for i=1:N y(i)=x(800*i); end d=zeros(1,N/2); for i=1:N/2 d(i)=y(i+N/2); end D=zeros(N/2,N/2); for i=1:N/2 for j=N/2:-1:1 D(i,-j+N/2+1)=y(i+j-1); end a=pinv(D)*d'; muhat=roots([1,-a']); U=zeros(N,N/2); for i=1:N for j=1:N/2 U(i,j)=muhat(j,1)^(i-1); end C=pinv(U)*y';

Using “prony” command in Matlab

20
Problems to be aware p less than N/2 Noise impacts the accuracy of the Prony pole estimation Noise can cause the damping factors to be too large

21
Conclusion Prony method extracts valuable information from a uniformly sampled signal and builds a series of damped complex exponentials or sinusoids Provide information of amplitude, phase, frequency and damping coefficients Very sensitive to the noise, and behave badly when noise presents
