Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We present an audio waveform editor that can be operated in real time through a tabletop interface. The systemcombines multi-touch and tangible interaction techniques inorder to implement the metaphor of a toolkit that allows direct manipulation of a sound sample. The resulting instrument is well suited for live performance based on evolvingloops.
