it's easy for non-programing people to bring "visions" regarding
interface design. (and i love do so :) as i know programers, it's quite
hard to establish a new standard. but imho the interface standards
(buttons, dropdown boxes, scrolling, menu-structure, etc.) are now a
couple of years old, and there might be better solutions for specific
tasks. audio seems to me like a good point to start.
if one can abstract from "navigating audiofiles by scrollbars",
"mounting busses and audioconnections by mouse (which is nice of
course)", "zooming into by eye" you could imagine hundreds of different
interfaces. the plainest case would be a command-line.
i think of combining sound (acoustic feedback), haptic feedback,

- to navigate in the program
- to scrub in the files
- to change parameters of plugins
- to mount connections
=> to "listen" to the program.
