So this might be a bit of a newbie question. I'm a working musician who mainly plays guitar and piano, and uses a lot of sampled instruments and synths as well. I don't mean this to be offensive to any players who might play and love these instruments.
I understand how important embouchure is to the sound of an instrument, and I know that different embouchures can result in different sounds.
However my question is would it be possible to create a mouthpiece (say for trumpet), that has a preset embouchure and buzz, and therefore is able to play within of given range of notes, just by blowing into it. It would be like modeling the job of the lips, but within a mechanical mouthpiece. Basically the mouthpiece would provide the embouchure, the player would provide the air.
Is this just super duper complicated and what a trumpet player is doing is too unique to copy into a mechanical function?
But if not, could this thinking also be applied to reeds? Double reeds? A harmonica is a fixed reed (which I know is different), that is resonated by an airstream.
Again, I'm sincerely just curious from a scientific perspective and not trying to take away from the years of effort and training and learning that great musicians put into mastering their instruments.
