In this episode, I was honored to interview Andrew Fyfe; a musician, a software engineer, and a researcher in the field of deep learning applied to audio.
In particular, Andrew is working on an exciting new technology, Neutone. Neutone allows quick deployment of trained neural networks to audio plugins and running them in the digital audio workstation for verification, testing, up to full-blown product releases for users.
At the same time, Andrew is wrapping up his PhD while working full time from Japan. He was kind enough to share his story and his journey to becoming an audio researcher.
Don’t forget to submit your plugins for the Neural Audio Plugin Competition until March the 17th of 2023!

In this podcast episode, you will learn:
- how Andrew learned audio processing and became an audio researcher after a successful rock band musician career,
- how he explored AI for music creation in his PhD,
- what is Neutone about and how to use it to deploy trained neural networks from PyTorch to audio plugins,
- what is Neural Audio Plugin competition,
- how is living and working in Japan for a person from the UK.
