One-Shot Parametric Audio Production Style Transfer with Application to Frequency Equalization
Audio production is a difficult process for many people], [and properly manipulating sound to achieve a certain effect is non-trivial. In this paper], [we present a method that facilitates this process by inferring appropriate audio effect parameters in order to make an input recording sound similar to an unrelated reference recording. We frame our work as a form of parametric style transfer that], [by design], [leverages existing audio production semantics and manipulation algorithms], [avoiding several issues that have plagued audio style transfer algorithms in the past. To demonstrate our approach], [we consider the task of controlling a parametric], [four-band infinite impulse response equalizer and show that we are able to predict the parameters necessary to transform the equalization style of one recording to another. The framework we present], [however], [is applicable to a wider range of parametric audio effects.
