I look forward to seeing the results of this. Maybe I am a bit thick, but I found some of the wording a bit vague.
First thing was this question: "Please rate the following as your priorities in instrument design where 0 indicates no preference and 3 on either side indicates a strong preference" What's the difference between the 3 all the way to the left and the 3 all the way to the right? Oh, I get it, there is a "Vs" in there.
Also, this is a bit vague: "Please rate the importance in the features of a new musical instrument", is 1 more important, or 5? I am guessing 5 is the most important.
Also, I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the Mapping Library for Pd, and any other mapping software you have encountered.

Thank you all for your very fast response to this survey, 21 responses in one evening, fantastic.
The results of this survey will indeed be published as an outcome of my PhD, I will post a link to the paper to this list when it is written. As part of this work I am developing new externals for PD/ Max and jMax(well maybe jMax) to aid in the instrument design and specifically the mapping process. I will post to the list when these are available.
Regarding feedback, you have a very good point, I will add a feedback field to the survey, but if you have already filled it in and have some comments on the survey they are most welcome so feel free to send them to me off list to mdjp...@york.ac.uk

how will the results of the survey feed back into and straighten the pd community? will the results be published publicly? i think i can safely say we are all looking for new ideas regarding instrument creation :) i'd be super interested in hearing more about your "Data Mining and Sonification" work if you can talk about it! warm regards, star On Mon, 2007-02-12 at 20:26 +0000, Matthew Paradis wrote:
Apologies for cross postings
I am currently carrying out research for a PhD in Music Technology. As part of this research I am trying to get a general idea of the current trends in the design of interactive performance systems and New Musical Instruments.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could spend a couple of minutes answering the survey at the link below.
