  • US Patent:
    6787690, Sep 7, 2004
  • Filed:
    Jul 16, 2002
  • Appl. No.:
    10/197363
  • Inventors:
    Peter J. Celi - Agoura Hills CA
    Michel A. Doidic - Westlake Village CA
    David W. Fruehling - Simi Valley CA
    Marcus Ryle - Westlake Village CA
  • Assignee:
    Line 6 - Agoura Hills CA
  • International Classification:
    G10H 300
  • US Classification:
    84723, 84600, 84602, 84725, 84730
  • Abstract:
    Disclosed is a stringed instrument with embedded digital signal processing (DSP) modeling capabilities. The stringed instrument has a body and a plurality of strings and each of the plurality of strings is respectively coupled to a pickup of a polyphonic pickup. The polyphonic pickup is used to detect a vibration signal for each string. An A/D converter converts the detected vibration signal of a string into a digital string vibration signal. Further, a digital signal processor is located within the body of the stringed instrument to process the digital string vibration signal. Particularly, the digital signal processor is used to process the digital string vibration signal such that the corresponding string tone of one of a plurality of selectable stringed instruments may be emulated. The emulated digital tone signal is then converted to analog form to create an emulated analog tone signal for output to an amplification device.

  • US Patent:
    6881891, Apr 19, 2005
  • Filed:
    Jul 16, 2002
  • Appl. No.:
    10/197008
  • Inventors:

  • Assignee:
    Line 6, Inc. - Agoura Hills CA
  • International Classification:
    G10H005/02
    G10H007/00
  • US Classification:
    84662, 84664
  • Abstract:
    Multiple channels simultaneously provide multiple, modified digital audio signals, respectively, based on the same digital audio input signal. Each channel has a respective nonlinear effects section to apply a nonlinear transfer function, such as one that emulates a vacuum tube guitar amplifier, based on the input signal. In addition, a respective audio effects section is provided in each channel to apply an audio effect, such as a linear audio effect, based on the input signal. This audio effect is set in each channel by a controller. In another embodiment, multi-tracker (e. g. , double tracker) functionality is provided by the multiple channels wherein at least one of the delay effect, pitch shift, and gain change in a channel is automatically changed as a function of the input signal.

  • International Classification:
    G10H 1/06
  • US Classification:
    84735, 84723, 84736, 84737
  • Abstract:
    Disclosed is a stringed instrument with embedded DSP modeling capabilities to model an acoustic stringed instrument. The stringed instrument has a body and a plurality of strings and each of the plurality of strings is respectively coupled to a pickup to detect a vibration signal for each string. An A/D converter converts the detected vibration signal of a string into a digital string vibration signal. A DSP is located within the body of the stringed instrument to process the digital string vibration signal and to implement an acoustic modeling system to process the digital string vibration signal in order to emulate a corresponding string tone of one of a plurality of selectable acoustic stringed instruments. Acoustic modeling includes acoustic string and body modeling, microphone placement modeling, and pick-sound modeling. The emulated acoustic digital tone signal is then converted to analog form for output to an amplification device.

  • US Patent:
    7711442, May 4, 2010
  • Filed:
    Sep 23, 2004
  • Appl. No.:
    10/948585
  • Inventors:
    Marcus Ryle - Westlake Village CA, US
    Michel A. Doidic - Westlake Village CA, US
  • Assignee:
    Line 6, Inc. - Calabasas CA
  • International Classification:
    G06F 17/00
  • US Classification:
    700 94
  • Abstract:
    Disclosed is an audio signal processor that determines the type of audio processing to be performed utilizing an audio processing device (APD) and a removable module. The APD includes a digital signal processor (DSP) that modifies an input audio signal in accordance with a signal processing instruction set. The removable module includes the signal processing instruction set, and when the removable module is coupled to the APD, the signal processing instruction set is transferred to and implemented by the DSP of the APD to perform an audio processing function upon the input audio signal. The removable module may also include a user interface having at least one control to set a control parameter that is transferred to the DSP of the APD to further modify audio processing. The APD may also include a multi-state footswitch whose functionality can be determined by the DSP.
