We compare six sound analysis/synthesis systems used for computer music. Each system analyzed the same collection of 27 varied input sounds, and output the results in Sound Descrip-tion Interchange Format (SDIF). We describe each system individually then compare the sys-tems in terms of availability, the sound model(s) they use, interpolation models, noise modeling, the mutability of various sound models, the parameters that must be set to perform analysis, and characteristic artifacts. Although we have not directly compared the analysis results among the different systems, our work has made such a comparison possible.
