This paper presents a study undertaken to evaluate user ratings on auditory feedback of sound source selection within a multi-track auditory environment where sound placement is controlled by a gesture control system. Selection confirmation is presented to the participants via changes to the audio mixture over the stereo loudspeakers or feedback over a single ear bluetooth headset. Overall five different methods are compared and results of our study are presented. A second task in the study was given to evaluate a preselection method to help find sound sources before selection, the participant altered a width control of the pre-selection that was heard in the bluetooth headset. Results indicate a specific value irrespective of genre that the pre-selection should be set to whilst the selection confirmation can be perceived to be dependant on genre and instrumentation.
