28: Intelligent Studio Production

Dave Moffat, Centre for Digital Music, Queen Mary University of London


Intelligent Studio Production is a set of real time audio tools that are presented in the form of VST audio plugins. A series of plugins have been developed, with the aim of tackling different areas of studio production. One such tool, is aimed at utilising DSP research to automate the process of drum phase alignment by performing analysis of all audio streams. Estimating locations of each microphones, compared to the overhead mic, and then suggesting a range of delay and gain parameters to an engineer. This will improve the audio engineers workflow, giving them an approximate starting point to work from.
