Tactile Music Instrument Recognition for Audio Mixers

Document Thumbnail

The use of touch screens for digital audio workstations, particularly audio mixing consoles, is not very common today. One reason is the ease of use and the intuitive tactile feedback that hardware faders, knobs and buttons provide. Adding tactile feedback to touch screens will largely improve usability. In addition touch screens can reproduce innovative extra tactile information. This paper investigates several design parameters for the generation of tactile feedback. The results indicate that music instruments can be distinguished if tactile feedback is rendered from the audio signal. This helps to improve recognition of an audio signal source that is assigned e.g. to a specific mixing channel. Applying this knowledge, the use of touch screens in audio applications becomes more intuitive.
