Trouble is sliders are space-taking. What about a colorful approach :
A little square which is white for 0, black for 1, and taking a scale of
gray colors for intermediate values. You'd ajust it the same way as a
knob, pressing the mouse button and going up/down, or with the mouswheel.
It wouldn't remind the user of any physical equivalent, but it would
better suit the digital interface. With a hue scale (HSV color model),
instead of a gray one, the visual impact could be pretty efficient,
though it would require some practice to get used to it.
