1. A method comprising:

  • at a computing device having a multi-point touch screen and a processor;

    executing a media mixing software application that provides media mixing functionality;

    while the media mixing software application is executing, displaying a mixing console Graphical User Interface (GUI) on the multi-point touch screen, the mixing console GUI having a plurality of graphically depicted media mixing controls including graphically depicted sliders, buttons, and/or dials;

    while displaying the mixing console GUI a plurality of having graphically depicted media mixing controls, detecting a plurality of simultaneous touch inputs on the multi-point touch screen;

    identifying a plurality of distinct graphically depicted media mixing controls that are associated with the plurality of simultaneous touch inputs on the multi-point touch screen, wherein each respective touch input in the plurality of simultaneous touch inputs on the multi-point touch screen corresponds to a different graphically depicted media mixing control in the plurality of distinct graphically depicted media mixing controls;

    determining modifications to the identified plurality of distinct graphically depicted media mixing controls based on the plurality of simultaneous touch inputs, wherein a respective modification to a respective graphically depicted media mixing control in the identified plurality of distinct graphically depicted media mixing controls is based on the respective touch input that corresponds to the respective graphically depicted media mixing control;

    updating the identified plurality of distinct graphically depicted media mixing controls of the mixing console GUI to reflect the determined modifications; and

    determining input data for media mixing operations in the media mixing software application based on the detected plurality of simultaneous touch inputs on the multi-point touch screen and the identified plurality of distinct graphically depicted media mixing controls that are associated with the detected plurality of simultaneous touch inputs.
