Default Prototype for Preset Management

Hi all,
its my first post for Reaper, just started a few month ago to work with it.

Wanted to ask for feedback, if my idea is worth continuing.

I build a rough prototype for browsing Halion presets that shows all preset on a 2D graph. The presets are ordered by similarity via a machine learning algorithm (tsne) and I am working to improve this.
You can prelisten every sound (each dot is a preset) and directly load it into reaper. The video is linked via dropbox( hope tats OK to everyone).
Idea behind it is, that I am trying to build a more musically oriented browsing and to find out how good I can map the sounds by similarity with an algorithm. So if you find a sound (or know it) you can search its surrounding for similar sounds.

The idea is not new, currently XLNaudio does this for drum sounds with XO and this seems to be based on a google paper

But until now, no one has done this for synths and there is no product out, so I thought to give it a try.

Current status:
- LUA Script to render a folder of presets into a folder of wav files
- Python scripts to extract audio features from wavs(very basic)
- Pyton script that draws the plot, plays the sounds and loads presets into Reaper

Here is the video, hope it works

Would be very interested if you find this useful.

Thanks a lot!
