Abstract

Intelligent music production tools aim to assist the user by automating music production tasks. Many previous systems sought to create the best possible mix based on technical parameters but rarely has subjectivity been directly incorporated. This paper proposes that a new generation of tools can be designed based on evolutionary computation methods, which are particularly suited to dealing with the non-linearities and complex solution spaces introduced by perceptual evaluation. These techniques are well-suited to studio applications, in contrast to many previous systems which prioritized the live environment. Furthermore, there is potential to address accessibility issues in existing systems which rely greatly on visual feedback. A survey of previous literature is provided before the current state-of-the-art is described and a number of suggestions for future directions in the field are made.
