This paper presents our latest results in synthesizing high quality trumpet performances. Our approach identifies the continuous control over the sound as a fundamental element in the synthesis process. We developed our synthesis model as a cooperative system of two sub-models, continuous control parameters providing the interface between them. The two sub-parts are the instrument model, which takes sources of continuous control signals as input and produces an audio output, and the performance model, which takes some symbolic representation of music as an input, and produces control signals.
