Effect of Modifying Each Note Expression Control

Controlling Common Articulations and Expressions

In this section we present qualitative results and quantitative results showing the effect of the note expression control parameters.


The effect of modifying note expression on an existing sample. The number indicates the amount of modification to the note expression control where (+0) is the original sample. Upper figure shows the spectrogram of generations, and the bottom figure shows the amplitude of the generations. The cartoon on the side indicates how the modified feature would change the synthesis parameters. The gray dash line in the bottom figure indicates the note boundaries.
