Tangible Mix Surface

The project is a collaboration between Aalborg University, The Danish Rhythmic Music Conservatory and The Royal Danish Academy of Music. The goal is to develope an interface for music mixing targeted towards expert sound technicians and producers. The mixing interface uses a stage metaphor mapping scheme where audio channels are represented as digital widgets on a 2D surface. Various interaction control schemes are developed and evaluated. The focus is on tangible vs. multi-touch interaction as well on working with the challenges/opportunities involved with implementing the stage metaphor for professional use.

Different control schemes are tested (multi-touch, tangibles for each channels, smart tangibles, etc.). Here there is a tangible for controlling each effect.
