Low-dimensional parameter mapping using spectral envelopes

We explore the technique of controlling synthesis using an instrumental or other sound source. The range of spectra available from the sound source, and also that available from the synthesis technique, are estimated and the first is mapped to the second. Suitable synthesis parameters for the synthesis algorithms are found by searching a database of known output spectra. A simple experiment illustrates the technique.
