Whitney Music Box simulation

The music box disc I’m getting prepared, mentioned in the previous post, looks something like this.

Here’s a simulation of what it would sound like, played on an antique Stella music box, assuming the box’s spring-wound mechanism has the strength to play the first chord, in which every tine sounds at the same time.

It is perhaps worth mentioning that many modern synthesizers also have problems with that first chord, due to an arbitrary maximum number of simultaneous voices.

This digital simulation was produced by Music Box disc maker Jack Perron.
