Sound Examples

Autoencoder splicing

[SuperCollider code] to generate the audio examples below
Note that a few distortions and clicks are in this audio, revealing some of the side effects of the treatments.

Public Enemy Don't Believe the Hype orginal acapella (brief excerpt)

The same run through a 6 layer DNN model trained on that audio via the PV_Kerasify UGen (note that this model was only trained for a few iterations and distortions are very audible)

Two 6 layer DNN models are interpolated with the PV_DNNMorph UGen; larger changes in texture correspond to changing which layer is interpolated

Demo of the PV_KerasifyActivationFromBuffer UGen, with the 2048 buffer values continually replenished from a bank of sine oscillators at different frequencies
