Abstract:

Factorsynth is a new software tool, developed in the Max environment, that implements sound processing based on matrix factorization techniques. In particular, Nonnegative Matrix Factorization is applied to the input sounds, which produces a set of temporal and spectral components that can be then freely manipulated and combined to produce new sounds. Based on a simple graphical interface that visualizes the factorization output, Factorsynth aims at bringing the ideas of matrix factorization to a wider audience of composers and sound designers.
