I can't believe we have these ridiculous music/sound editor UIs, full of awkward, knob-looking controls that are almost impossible to operate with the mouse. Clearly the standard computer interaction controls such as a menu or slider or even a text field would be easier for computer-based settings.
When money is no object, music is both mixed live and produced in the studio on enormous digital consoles which replicate their DSP parameters onto hundreds or thousands of tactile faders and rotary encoders.
The keyboard and mouse are a terrible way to mix. Fortunately small physical control surfaces can be had for not too much, though then you have the problem of matching your limited controls to the thousands of parameters in the DAW.
Instead of allowing me to set my own range and instead of making an interface where choosing a value works with common input interfaces we get tricked out, 32-bit radial controls that fail with regard to any operative goal on their use.
