Tactile control systems for music interaction are abundant in the academic world. Many commercial devices exist that can simulate discrete boundary type interactions well and that do a passable job simulation other interactions.
This project examines the concept of adapting a familiar physical interface, the computer mouse, for use in a music interaction where continuous input is required.
A general design for haptic interaction is presented as a function of the users input forces which can be easily manipulated to create the illusion of different types of surface.
A control system using audio signals is implemented by compromising between several pertinent factors relating to performance, practicality and noise.
The system shows potential for a unique, yet familiar, interface for music expression.
