Is it possible to mechanically create a pressure wave, with correct amplitude, frequency, and other noise characteristics to recreate known sounds like train horns, chime bells, gun shot, etc.?
I am interested if a vibrating body, driven by a computer with controlled forces at various places in the body, can create a specific sound that a human will recognize, even though it doesn't have any of the properties of that material.
For example, is it possible to create a train horn noise by connecting a computer to a metal plate that can create pressure waves or multiple air tubes interfering constructively? Would this noise be able to be indistinguishable to the human ear from a real train horn? Can this be done by stacking a lot of air tubes with different frequencies and amplitudes?
