The Multi-Touch SoundScape Renderer


In this paper, we introduce a direct manipulation tabletop multi-touch user interface for spatial audio scenes. Although spatial audio rendering existed for several decades now, mass market applications have not been developed and the user interfaces still address a small group of expert users. We im- plemented an easy-to-use direct manipulation interface for multiple users, taking full advantage of the object-based au- dio rendering mode. Two versions of the user interface have been developed to explore variations in information archi- tecture and will be evaluated in user tests.
