Sword sounds are synthesised by physical models in real- time. A number of compact sound sources are used along the length of the sword which replicate the swoosh sound when swung through the air. Listening tests are carried out which reveal a model with reduced physics is perceived as more authentic. The model is further developed to be controlled by a Wii Controller and successfully extended to include sounds of a baseball bat and golf club.
