We propose a framework for the design and development of component-based woodwind virtual instruments. Each functional part of the instrument is represented with an independent component, and can be created with different approaches, by unfamiliar constructors. Using the aforementioned framework, Virtual Zournas is implemented. The user can experiment with the instrument, changing its physical properties. Instrument control is performed via MIDI files or external MIDI devices.
