The control of complex systems with many parameters is often
hard. Tuning each parameter individually takes much time and expertise,
just selecting presets does not offer enough flexibility. The preset
controller is a novel interaction widget that aims at providing an
easy way to control many parameters simultaneously. It is based on the
interpolation of a number of presets. The user can control the weights
by moving icons that represent the presets in a rectangular area.
