A Mixed 2D/3D Interface for Music Spatialization

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNAI,volume 1434)

Abstract

We propose a system for controlling in real time the localisation of sound sources. The system, called MidiSpace, is a real time spatializer of Midi music. We raise the issue of which interface is the most adapted for using MidiSpace. Two interfaces are proposed: a 2D interface for controlling the position of sound sources with a global view of the musical setup, and a 3D/VRML interface for moving the listener’s avatar. We report on the design of these interfaces and their respective advantages, and conclude on the need for a mixed interface for spatialization.
