Touch support in live 9

Post by davepermen » Fri Oct 26, 2012 8:06 am

I sure hope live9 gets proper touch support. It kinda sucks being able to run live on my win8 tablet, but not being able to twist any knobs properly without a mouse. Traktor the same. Hope they both will update and fix that. If so, live 9 will be an insta-upgrade for me.

I'll keep using Live with mouse, but here's one example of touch support in DAW-like software:

nah, once you go touchscreen, you don't want to have to use live with a mouse. i still use the mouse of course, but quickly accessing the knob on any device with touch while messing around would be awesome. it essentially lets your laptop/desktop/tablet be a performance device (like many use an ipad nowadays).

i plan on getting that screen at home (or a similar one like that, from another company). it would be a shame if live is the only app that doesn't support touch properly (and multitouch, that would be even better). as making music would obviously gain from the additional input possibilities.
