How would audio recording move beyond voice memos?
Filters for Audio? Experimenting with sound editing & interaction, designed & coded Vox-Box, a vocal sampler that effortlessly creates engaging backbeats.
How would Vox-Box exist as a material interaction?
Ideation — Early concepts for Vox-Box envisioned a material interaction, using potentiometers and FSRs to adjust the vocal samples.
Could hardware prototyping inform interaction design?
Prototyping — Testing preliminary concepts revealed both the software's potential for play as well as how it could be translated to a digital interaction.
How would sound become visual?
Iteration — Developing a clear visual language required many iterations to translate multi-dimensional physical interactions into a digital realm.
What will draw users to Vox-Box?
Interaction — Extending the Vox-Box physical prototype & initial interaction sketches, developed a fully realized mobile interaction concept.
Laying Down a Track
Hit record, make some noise! Then freely adjust your beat's tempo, volume, and note length.
Adding in multiple audio tracks enables endless opportunities for unique sounds.
