5 ratings

PointZero (aka ⱣØỊИ₮ZЄЯ0) is a FluCoMa-powered implementation of NMF-based Concatenative Sound Synthesis, aka NMF-inspired Audio Mosaicing, inspired by Rob Clouth's "Reconstructor" software used on the album Zero Point.

PointZero requires Cycling 74's Max 8.1.6 or above, and also requires FluCoMa and HISSTools Impulse Response Toolbox externals installed in order to run. All of these links are provided in the readme.

Concatenative Sound Synthesis (CSS), otherwise known as Audio Mosaicing, is a term that describes a broad set of data-driven approaches for interacting with an audio segment database, or Corpus, primarily by re-creating a Target sound from corpus segments through a descriptor-lead analytical comparison and superimposition algorithm. The sound engine behind CSS resembles granular synthesis, except that aspects such as the grain size and position in the corpus are determined by a database query. The method used for PointZero uses an NMF-based machine learning algorithm in place of descriptors - an algorithm originally published by Jonathan Driedger, Thomas Prätzlich, and Meinard Müller: "Let It Bee — Towards NMF-Inspired Audio Mosaicing" (2015). This algorithm was implemented by FluCoMa in an object called fluid.buffcross~, which this patch is built around, with an emphasis on producing stereo output results quickly and easily.

This patch is free and open source! However, if you'd like to buy me a coffee and/or support my further developments of this software, please consider adding a donation while downloading.
