The aim of this work is to make an instrument that is timbrally consistent over pitch and loudness. This particular work is not attempting to reproduce an existing instrument’s timbre, but to produce a timbrally dynamic virtual instrument that can be designed by the user. In this paper there is a brief introduction to timbre and synthesis methods, followed by a proposal on how to make timbrally consistent virtual instruments out of given timbres.
