Fisher, Michael and Gibson, Ian (2011) The autonomous post production of a piano recording. In: AES 130th Conference, 13th-16th May 2011, London, UK.

This investigation aims to determine if the basic post production techniques typically applied to a piano recording can be done so entirely autonomously by software, in the form on a VST Plugin. Using spectral analy- sis the software will compare the incoming audio to a predetermined ideal and apply compression and equalisation accordingly, then alter the parameters of the effects in real time in order to maintain a relatively constant tone and volume. In the context of a popular music production this will be extremely useful during the mixing process, as it will automatically control the large dynamic and frequency range of the piano.
