Extended Convolution Techniques for Cross-Synthesis

  title={Extended Convolution Techniques for Cross-Synthesis},
  author={Christiane Donahue and Tom Erbe and Miller Puckette},
Cross-synthesis, a family of techniques for blending the timbral characteristics of two sounds, is an alluring musical idea. Discrete convolution is perhaps the most generalized technique for performing cross-synthesis without assumptions about the input spectra. When using convolution for cross-synthesis, one of the two sounds is interpreted as a finite impulse response filter and applied to the other. While the resultant hybrid sound bears some sonic resemblance to the inputs, the process is…

Extensions to Convolution for Generalized Cross-Synthesis
Novel extensions to the process of discrete convolution for the purposes of offline cross-synthesis are introduced that attempt to remedy concerns of inflexibility and the lack of control over which sound the outcome more closely resembles.
Live Convolution with Time-Varying Filters
Two new approaches to artefact-free real-time updates of the impulse response in convolution are presented, which can be useful for several applications within digital audio processing: parametrisation of convolution reverbs, dynamic filters, and live convolution.
Live Convolution with time-Variant Impulse Response
Method for doing convolution of two live signals, without the need to load a time-invariant impulse response prior to the convolution process, and can be used to build parametric convolution effects for audio mixing and spatialization.
Inner Rhythms: Vessels as a Sustained Brain-Body Performance Practice
Abstract Vessels is a brain-body performance practice that combines flute improvisation with live, sonified brain and body data. This article describes the genesis of this performance practice, which


The Computer Music Tutorial
Musical Signal Processing Based on Digital Signal Processing Technology
This paper is going to analyze the application of digital signal processing technology in musical signal processing in two aspects: firstly, usingdigital signal processing time domain technology to add delay and reverberation to the recorded musical signal; and secondly, using digital signalprocessing frequency domainTechnology to balance the frequency of the recorded music signal.
