Rule 1 got a 3 because, while the program has a consistent look, there are sometimes way too many windows, which is perceptually and cognitively annoying. Rule 2 got a 4 because of the programs depth if you know how to use it. Rule 3 got a 5 because you get an immediate response from any adjustment you make like changing tuning or applying a filter, which uses the programs lexical level. Rule 4 got a 3 due to there not being positive or negative feedback since no one knows the sound you want except for you. Rule 5 got a 2 because you can easily screw things up if you don’t know what you’re doing, but thankfully everything is easily reversible, hence the 5 rating for rule 6. Rule 7 got a 5 also due to the absolute control of every minute detail this program gives the user, which is immensely satisfying on a cognitive level. Rule 8 received a 2 because the programs massive depth can be a drawback if you can’t remember where what you’re looking for is.
