Abstract

This paper starts from the viewpoint that the audio industry should take advantage of the possibilities offered by new visual and interactive interfaces in order to provide the best tools for audio tasks. Audio industry products have moved towards better displays in modern digital mixers and Digital Audio Workstations but haven't fully embraced the possibilities of current interface technology and remain largely traditional in interface design. In order for audio engineers to develop new visual and interactive audio products an understanding of existing Human Computer Interface (HCI) design and evaluation methodology is required. This paper presents a design and evaluation process which is tailored to audio industry product development and was used in the development of a new EQ interface.
