The musical use of real-time digital audio tools implies the need for simultaneous control of a large number of parameters to achieve the desired sonic results. Often it is also necessary to be able to navigate between certain parameter configurations in an easy and intuitive way, rather than to precisely define the evolution of the values for each(More)

Three different auditory representations—Lyon’s cochlear model, Patterson’s gammatone filterbank combined with Meddis’ inner hair cell model, and mel-frequency cepstral coefficients—are analyzed in connection with self-organizing maps to evaluate their suitability for a perceptually justified classification of sounds. The self-organizing maps are trained(More)
Musicologists have to consult an extraordinarily heterogeneous body of primary and secondary sources during all stages of their research. Many of these sources are now available online, but the historical dispersal of material across libraries and archives has now been replaced by segregation of data and metadata into a plethora of online repositories.
