I put together a downloadable spreadsheet that calculates
the amplitudes of guitar-string harmonics:
That would have been useful to me last year when I was trying
to simulate a guitar input signal in LTspice. At the time I
created a simulated generator of several harmonics, at various
multiples and strengths but I got rather mediocre results (it
is difficult to engineer even a clean guitar sound).
I have since learned that LTspice can _import_ wav files, in
addition to writing them out. I haven't tried it yet, but I
definitely plan to when I get back to designing effects (I'm
too busy with my ss guitar amp at the moment).
With wav in, and wav out, you can simulate a guitar effect and
hear (after the simulation completes) what it would sound
like, without warming the soldering iron.
LTspice is such a great tool for electronics simulations and
it's free. I've also been able to run it under Linux (using
WINE) with very little fuss.
