I would like to resynthesize some middle east percussive sounds.I know that this is too general but I am looking for info about the physics behind these instruments and I can’t find anything. So any tips on how to resynthesize these sounds? It doesn’t really matter exactly which sound tar drum, doumbek etc. In the end I will use Max/MSP for the job, but it's ok to start with different programs if anyone can provide any tips in order to understand the algorithm of the specific sound and then move to max. Someone suggested me the U-he Zebra program. Any similar recommendations?
thanks in advance!!
