In the Stage Paradigm (SP) the visual position of each channel widget represents the channel’s level and pan position. The SP has received favourable evaluation but does not scale well to high track counts because channels with similar pan positions and level visually overlap/occlude. This paper considers a modified SP for creating a ‘flat-mix’ which provides coarse control of channel level and pan position using a grid-based, rather than continuous, stage and extends the concept to EQ visualisation. Its motivation was to convert the ‘overlap’ deficiency of the SP into an advantage. All subjects were faster at creating audibly comparable flat-mixes with the novel SP. Subject selected satisfaction keywords were also very positive.
