Music Production can be a technically demanding process in which semantic and perceptual characteristics of a mix can have a nontrivial and nonlinear relationship to the parameters available to the producer. In order to improve access to these tools, and to encourage creativity, we can utilize semantic technologies in order to develop intelligent interfaces and production systems. In this tutorial, we present the tools and techniques currently being employed in the field of intelligent music production, along with an overview of the ways in which semantic audio data can be used to make the audio engineer’s workflow more intuitive. In addition to this, we introduce the Semantic Audio Feature Extraction (SAFE) DAW plug-ins for the collection, visualization and application of musical semantics data.
