Audio Effects for Real-Time Performance Using Beat Tracking

We present a new class of digital audio effects which can automatically relate parameter values to the tempo of a musical input in real-time. Using a beat tracking system as the front end, we demonstrate a tempo-dependent delay effect and a set of beat-synchronous low frequency oscillator (LFO) effects including auto-wah, tremolo and vibrato. The effects show better performance than might be expected as they are blind to certain beat tracker errors. All effects are implemented as VST plug-ins which operate in real-time, enabling their use both in live musical performance and the off-line modification of studio recordings.
