Type: Sound Application
Traverso is a lightweight multitrack audio
recording and editing tool, written in C++, using
the Qt 4 toolkit.
User Interface concept:
Traverso uses a contextual interaction interface.
Instead of using (only) the mouse to operate on
certain objects, the mouse and keyboard are used
together to control the program.
This results in a higher flexibility to control
the program compared to the 2 or 3 mouse buttons
available if the mouse was used alone. The mouse
only has to move on an object and all functions
become available by pressing a key on the
keyboard. This is more efficient and requires less
interaction than selecting the object and choosing
the function from a menu. Since the object under
the mouse cursor is automatically selected, this
concept is called "soft selection".
It differs also from the more generally known
"key shortcuts" which do not operate in a context,
or only on "hard selected" objects.
To help new users to learn this way of
controlling an application, Traverso offers
"Contextual Menus", a detailed help file, and a
tutorial on the web site.
