Automatic Control of the Dynamic Range Compressor Using a Regression Model and a Reference Sound

Controlling audio effects requires substantial professional knowledge of music production and mixing. However, using audio effects is important for processing all kinds of audio materials and it should not be an exclusive skill for professional audio engineers. This paper provides a novel control method for audio effects. Instead of using parameters (e.g. threshold at 30db) or semantic terms (e.g. a bright EQ), it uses another audio file as “description” and applies an audio effect to the user’s file to get the desired sound that is closer to the example in terms of perceptually relevant production parameters.
