1. Survey goals
Through this survey we would like to gain insights into how creative users interact or wish to be able to interact with audio content whether e.g. samples, loops, sound effects or entire songs. The results will help us defining strategies and technologies to improve workflows for music artists, sound designers, audio engineers and producers. The overall aim is to develop a new ecosystem which will allow users to fetch audio content in novel ways and to establish a unified communication endpoint to access audio content from various online resources.
The survey consists in a set of multiple choice, checkbox and free form (open ended) questions. It should take about 5-10 minutes to complete. Participation is entirely voluntary and you have the right to withdraw from the study without any disadvantages. Your inputs and suggestions would however be extremely valuable to us and we would like to encourage you to complete the entire survey.
2. Anonymity and data protection
Survey data use and storage will comply the standards of the UK Data Protection Act (1998). The confidentiality of personal information and the anonymity of all volunteers will be preserved. All responses will remain anonymous and cannot be linked to participants. The responses and their analyses may be used in academic publications in an anonymised way.
