Sound Source Selection for Synthesizer Using Affective Expression

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) It is required to understand the theories of timbre making to use a synthesizer. In this paper, we propose a system that searches a timbre by natural language, without using technical terms of the synthesizer. We conducted a set of experiments to evaluate sounds of various wavetables using adjective pairs. Using the evaluation results, we developed a system that searches a timbre from any word. Word2Vec converts the input word into a set of values representing similarity to the expressive words. By calculating the similarity between the values of the input and the values of the wavetable, the system finds the most proper timbre.
