In this workshop, you will learn how to use Neutone to bring in AI/Deep Learning technology to your music production workflow using DAW. Neutone ( is a game-changing VST/AU audio plugin which allows users to load and apply a variety of AI models. It is also a platform for you to develop your own AI models. The workshop will cover how-to from musicians perspective as lead by Nao Tokui who used Neutone in his MUTEK performance. The second half of the workshop will cover the basics of building your own timbre transfer models lead by Naotake Masuda. The session will be lead primarily in Japanese.
