Abstract : This paper presents a physically inspired source-filter model for rolling sound synthesis. The model, which is suitable for real-time implementation, is based on qualitative and quantitative observations obtained from a physics-based model described in the literature. In the first part of the paper, the physics-based model is presented, followed by a perceptual experiment, whose aim is to identify the perceptually relevant information characterizing the rolling interaction. On the basis of this experiment, we hypothesize that the particular pattern of the interaction force is responsible for the perception of a rolling object. A complete analysis-synthesis scheme of this interaction force is then provided, along with a description of the calibration of the proposed source-filter sound synthesis process. Finally, a mapping strategy for intuitive control of the proposed synthesis process (i.e. size and velocity of the rolling object and roughness of the surface) is proposed and validated by a listening test.
