Headed by Prof. Bryan Pardo, the Interactive Audio Lab is in the Computer Science Department of Northwestern University. We develop new methods in Machine Learning, Signal Processing and Human Computer Interaction to make new tools for understanding and manipulating sound.
Ongoing research in the lab is applied to audio scene labeling, audio source separation, inclusive interfaces, new audio production tools and machine audition models that learn without supervision. For more see our projects page.

We provide a software framework that lets deep learning practitioners easily integrate their own PyTorch models into the open-source Audacity DAW. This lets ML audio researchers put tools in the hands of sound artists without doing DAW-specific development work.

Nuances in speech prosody (i.e., the pitch, timing, and loudness of speech) are a vital part of how we communicate. We utilize generative machine learning models to generate prosody with user control over these nuances and generate speech reflecting user-specified prosody.

We showcase an unsupervised method that repurposes deep models trained for music generation and music tagging for audio source separation, without any retraining.
