IRCAM Musical Workstation (IMW)
non-trivial real-time musical signal processing
calculation engine architecture
The IRCAM Musical Workstation (IMW) is designed to facilitate experimentation with real-time signal processing and interactive musical composition and performance algorithms.The IMW's calculation engine is a general purpose multiprocessor based on the Intel i860 microprocessor. The calculation engine provides a unified platform for complex real-time musical event processing and signal processing. An overview of the calculation engine architecture is presented along with a discussion of the choice of host platform.
