Acoustics is the science of sound. What interests us is what is useful for understanding our musical instruments. It is above all the musical acoustics of wind instruments that we have documented here.
Most of the phenomena are already well explained by the acoustics, but there is still a lot of work to be done to achieve human's ear accuracy, to achieve the level of sensations that can feel the musicians in relation to a given instrument.
The search has already reached a certain level and being active, it is possible to see more and more applications see the day.
For example, in 1988 acoustician A. H. Benade found a circuit equivalent to a cylinder-based cone.
VENOVA. Made in 2017 by Yamaha, uses this principle, and makes it the first cylindrical saxophone (normally it's rather conical).
