Abstract : The ondes Martenot is a classic electronic musical instrument based on heterodyning processing. This paper proposes a power-balanced simulation of its circuit, in order to synthesize the sound it produces. To this end, the proposed approach consists in formulating the circuit as a Port-Hamiltonian System, for which power-balanced numerical methods are available. Observations on numerical experiments based upon this formulation allow simplifications of the circuit in order to achieve real-time computation in home-studio conditions.
