Hi Christian, There are some reasonable quality instrumental recordings that you might consider here: The resolution and rate of most samples are generally fine. I have used some of the clarinet samples from a related page, transposed them in goldwav (so all transpositions were isochronous) and then run them through various matlab scripts.

I want to do the programming in Matlab. I want to use string sounds (instead of piano) because they allow for longer durations, and because they feature a nice and undistorted spectrum of overtones (piano overtones are rather distorted). I need to find a free database of violin etc. sounds of several seconds for all pitches (best would be: all semitones). I would do the interpolating in order to get intermediate pitches in Matlab. If sounds are longer than needed I would fade them out as I need it. Is there any freely available database of string sounds? Thanks for your help, Chris ---- Christian Kaernbach Kiel University ***
