Percieved Difference in Equalizing Workflow Between a Control Surface and a Mouse and Keyboard: What Differences in Workflow do Sound Engineers Perceive Between Rotary Controllers and Mouse and Keyboard when Equalizing with Parametric Equalizer Software?

Abstract [en]

In this research an experiment was made to understand how engineers perceive the differences between using a physical rotary knob and graphical user interface (GUI) for an equalizing task. Subjects were given tasks with control surfaces and with GUIs and a questionnaire to find out if there is a perceived difference in workflow in two different interaction situations with a software parametric equalizer. Comparisons based on tasks and questions and overall comparisons are made between the perception of control surface interaction and the mouse and keyboard interaction. Different comments from the subjects are discussed and an evaluation of the experiment and influencing variables was made. Results show that there are perceived differences but they are also task and experience dependent so there is no way of saying that an interaction method is doing the job better than the other. What could be concluded are that overall, almost all subjects, preferred the interaction with the control surface.
