Complex interfaces for audio processing tools can prevent novices from achieving their desired modifications. Here we adapt a correlational method used widely in psychoacoustics to quickly map from high-level language-based descriptors (such as "warm") to audio processing parameters. This allows automated construction of simpler interfaces for audio processing tools. This approach was applied to and evaluated on an audio equalizer and an artificial reverberator.
