An approach to map the various acoustic regimes of a wind instument is presented. In this work, the regimes are first classified based on the occurence or the lack of sound. Physically, the production of a sound corresponds to the existence of self-sustained oscillations in the resonator of the instrument, whereas the lack of sound is associated with a stable static regime. Another classification based on the sound frequency is also investigated. The maps are created in a space consisting of design and control parameters. The boundaries of the maps are obtained explicitly in terms of the parameters using a support vector machine classifier as well as a dedicated adaptive sampling scheme. The approach is applied to a simplified clarinet model.
