Xtextures introduces a new parametric synthesis method for sound textures based on existing works in visual and sound texture synthesis. Xtextures extracts feature correlations from a spectral representation of arbitrary input signals by means of convolving a set of random filters with the complex spectrogram of that signal. Stores these feature correlations can then be stored on disc and combined freely to create sets of feature correlations that can be imposed into arbitrary sounds. The underlying algorithm has been developed to allow re-synthesis of sound textures, but can be applied to arbitrary sounds.
