Abstract

Spatialization of sound sources in depth allows a hierarchical display of multiple audio streams and therefore may be an efficient tool for developing novel auditory interfaces. In this paper we present an audio-haptic interface for audio browsing based on rendering distance cues for ordering sound sources in depth. The haptic interface includes a linear position tactile sensor made by conductive material. The touch position on the ribbon is mapped onto the listening position on a rectangular virtual membrane, modeled by a bidimensional Digital Waveguide Mesh and providing distance cues of four equally spaced sound sources. Furthermore a knob of a MIDI controller controls the position of the mesh along the playlist, which allows to browse the whole set of files. Subjects involved in a user study found the interface intuitive and entertaining. In particular the interaction with the stripe was highly appreciated.
