Spectral models provide ways to manipulate musical audio signals that can be both powerful and intuitive, but high-level control is often required in order to provide flexible real-time control over the potentially large parameter set. This paper introduces Metamorph, a new open source library for high-level sound transformation. We describe the real-time sinusoids plus noise plus transients model that is used by Metamorph and explain the opportunities that it provides for sound manipulation.
