Designing Sound Collaboratively - Perceptually Motivated Audio Synthesis [article]

Niklas Klügel and Timo Becker and Georg Groh
2014 arXiv   pre-print
In this contribution, we will discuss a prototype that allows a group of users to design sound collaboratively in real time using a multi-touch tabletop.  ...  We make use of a machine learning method to generate a mapping from perceptual audio features to synthesis parameters. This mapping is then used for visualization and interaction.  ...  In case of the collaborative application Nuvolet [4] , which is based on CataRT, this space is static. It uses a 3D camera system as sensor for gesture driven Audio Mosaicing.  ...

The Sound Monad: A Philosophical Perspective on Sound Design

Vincenzo Zingaro
2021 Open Philosophy  
After having introduced the general framing in Section 1, focusing on a short history of the theory and practice of sound design, in Section 2 we propose a reading of sound as monad.  ...  The insight is resumed and further discussed in Section 4, where we draw our conclusions by demonstrating the fitness of such framing with regards to the standpoint of sound design, while accounting for  ...  After having displayed the system of relations and forces making for the idea of "substance" in Leibniz, we can easily grasp why Cox would rely on Deleuze to account for such a powerful sound-designing  ...

2022 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems  
Typically, however, these interfaces provide only limited audio styling, collapsing rich visual design into a static audio output style with a single synthesized voice.  ...  To explore the potential for more aesthetic and intuitive sound design for websites, we prompted 14 professional sound designers to create auditory website mockups and interviewed them about their designs  ...  For example, researchers have experimented with using diferent sound dimensions, including pitch, loudness, timbre, space, and rhythm, to signify data variations [32, 70, 75] .  ...

An Evaluation of Multidimensional Controllers for Sound Design Tasks

Robert Tubb, Simon Dixon
2015 Proceedings of the 33rd Annual ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '15  
This paper presents an investigation into musicians' ability to control sound synthesiser parameters using various interfaces.  ...  Subjects had to match a target sound as quickly and accurately as possible.  ...  This poses a challenge to interface designers: how to make the search as productive as possible? The majority of computer music production is carried out using a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).  ...

From Words to Sound: Neural Audio Synthesis of Guitar Sounds with Timbral Descriptors

The Sound Of AI Community
2022 Zenodo  
It is difficult for musicians to generate sounds which reflect the timbral properties they have in mind, because of the nature of the latent spaces of such systems.  ...  In this paper, we introduce a DL-powered instrument that generates guitar sounds from vocal commands.  ...  We asked them to use the system freely for one hour, during which they should explore its sound design possibilities.  ...

Playing with the sound maker

Alissa N. Antle, Milena Droumeva, Greg Corness
2008 Proceedings of the 7th international conference on Interaction design and children - IDC '08  
Half the children used a version of the system that instantiated a body-based metaphor in the mapping layer connecting body movements to output sounds.  ...  Forty children learned to create musical sound sequences using an interactive sound making environment.  ...  For example, they associated tempo with speed of movement through (or around) a space. Pitch was associated with movement up and down in a 3D space or towards and away in a 2D space.  ...
