4. Conclusion

The usability of Sweep has been vastly improved with a goal of recreating the style of interaction possible in the analogue domain. Along with Sweep's waveform view of peak and average data values, the implementation of vinyl-like scrubbing and accurate monitoring of playback latency has greatly improved the overall usability of the program.

Additionally, the modelling the characteristics of an analogue turntable made it possible to use Sweep in a completely new way, as a tool for live performance. A review in the March 2003 issue of Linux Format magazine presented Sweep as "a capable performance application that edits as well", emphasising the usefulness of the software as "a DJ's best friend".
