Weighted-Function-Based Rapid Mapping of Descriptors to Audio Processing Parameters

User interfaces of audio tools and processors can be difficult for novices to use because technical parameters provide little guidance about their sonic manifestation. Borrowing a technique from psychoacoustics, the authors explore an efficient means for mapping users’ descriptors (target adjectives) to technical parameters. Weighting functions are created based on the relative influence of a parameter in influencing the adjective descriptor, such as warm, bright, and full. This approach was tested on two common types of processing: equalization and reverberation. Despite the relative simplicity of the approach, the results are promising.
