Typical synthesizers only provide controls to the low-level parameters of sound-synthesis, such as wave-shapes or filter envelopes. In contrast, composers often want to adjust and express higher-level qualities, such as how "scary" or "steady" sounds are perceived to be. We develop a system which allows users to directly control abstract, high-level(More)
There is often a mismatch between the high-level goals an artist wants to express and what the parameters of a synthesizer allow them to control. To enable composers to directly adjust personalized high-level qualities during sound synthesis, our system actively learns functions that map from the space of synthesizer control parameters to perceived levels(More)
