Digital models of various audio devices are useful for simulating audio processing effects, but developing good models of nonlinear systems can be challenging. This paper reports on the in-progress work of determining attributes of black-box audio devices using Volterra series modeling techniques. In general, modeling an audio effect requires determination of whether the system is linear or nonlinear, time-invariant or –variant, and whether it has memory. For nonlinear systems, we must determine the degree of nonlinearity of the system, and the required parameters of a suitable model. We explain our work in making educated guesses about the order of nonlinearity in a memoryless system and then discuss the extension to nonlinear systems with memory.
