DDSP tone transfer vst possibility?

Hi there,

I was wondering coming across this google project:

Would it be even possible to have this in some sort of in daw/vst version?
Cause i would love to use this inside my daw so i can more easily transfer sounds instead of having to go to their website, upload, see the result etc.

Is this anything somebody is already working on? and would it even be a good thing?
Cause in my eye’s i can see using these technology’s more closer into a working flow would be an enrichment for everyone involved in music.

Let me know! and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask about this.

machine learning things are not always realtime algorithms, but even if they aren’t you could just use ARA to implement it i guess

Hi Jasper,

We’ve (Magenta) actually got a prototype DDSP working in JUCE at the moment, and are just bug squashing before we open source it, hopefully in the next couple months. We’ll let you know on the magenta webpage



I was actually thinking about magenta DDSP last night for some reason and lo and behold. Super excited for this.

Wow that’s great to hear! I can’t wait :slight_smile:

hi @MagentaDevices / Magenta Team,

Any update on this?
I’m quite excited on this VST

Yup, sorry for the delay, it is definitely still in the works, and we’re just tuning it up to try and make sure it still sounds right while being efficient. We’ll definitely post when we release (hopefully soon, cautiously before the end of the year)


Seems like someone has made a version of this already:


wow awesome! is there any download link to the vst3 version? or i just can’t find it. :slight_smile:

Their JUCE project is available here (link is in the paper):

Got it, thanks! I think this is still very prototype but cool to see where it’s heading.

Did someone get the Audio part for the vst to work? i can only place it on midi channels and can’t seem to route audio into it somehow.

Hi @MagentaDevices ,
would you mind sharing an update on this? I’ll begin writing my Master’s Thesis in the next semester here at ETH Zürich and I would like to extend DDSP/Tone Transfer in some way. Creating a VST and/or making Tone Transfer work in real-time is a natural choice. I would like to avoid reinventing the wheel and so it would be great to know how your VST is coming along. If you have extension ideas that you don’t have time to implement, I’d be happy to hear them too. Feel free to email me at “vvolhejn at” as well.

Hi Vaclav,

I think the cautious estimate from before is on track. We’re in the internal testing stages now and should hopefully have the open source release before the end of the year. Again, sorry for the delay.
