Original Abstract

Algorithms for real-time digital simulation of analog guitar audio effects and amplifiers have become very popular and they are used in many audio recording studios and musical equipment. However, real-time simulation brings two contradictory requirements, accuracy versus computational complexity, and therefore a simplification of circuit schematics must be found. A certain simplification is provided by modified blockwise method, which is shown in this paper. The method is used for simulation of a typical guitar tube preamp.

Algoritmy digitální simulace analogových kytarových efektů a zesilovačů nachází stále větší uplatnění v hudebních studiích a také jako součást moderních systémů pro zpracování hudebních signálu. Zpracování v reálném čase však nese s sebou dva protichůdné pořadavky - přesnost a rychlost algoritmů. Proto musí být nalezeno určité zjednodušení obvodového schématu. To lze udělat pomocí metody simulace pomocí bloků, která je popsána v tomto článku. Metoda je ověřena na simulaci elektronkového kytarového předzesilovače.
