    Hello to all again!

    Do you guys know if there's any recording software that will work with a touchscreen monitor?

    Much thanks and appropriate hat doffing!

    I think Presonus' Studio Live software has an ipad ap/VNC component.

    Thanks, I'll check that right out...don't know if going that route would just be a PITA but it appeals to me.

    These apps are coming out for all digital mixers. So before you run right out, just wait a couple more months. But that PRESONUS studio live looks pretty bitchin'. After all, it's extremely affordable compared to the others.

    Now you can mix live shows from your apartment at home, in your underwear.

    Well, actually, clothes are optional.

    Can't the touch screen driver just emulate a regular mouse and be used with all your programs?

    I don't know about current generations of touch screens, but the first several had atrocious motherboards so I wouldn't have wanted them for a DAW computer.

    I had to work with a touchscreen thingy not too long ago..
    I, and that might only be my opinion..., can not see any advantage over a decent Mous-KB combi which you gonna need, anyway.

    If you like to eat chocolate during mixing or occasionally picking your nose I even stronlgy advice against the use of a Touchscreen.

    Check out posts by "Mats H" in this discussion regarding how he remote controls his Fireface UFX to record live concerts using an iPad:

    Specifically, he says:
    "I just bought myself an Ipad and AC-7 Core, from which I can remote control the UFX using the Mackie Control Protocol. It works over WiFi. For all other things, I can VNC to the laptop. I have yet to get it working on the MacBook, but it works in Windows on my main DAW so far."

    I've done lots of installations with Dell touchscreens over the past few years and they work fine. They just work as if they were a mouse pointer - so as long as I code the areas to be large - so basically we are talking "large mouse areas / buttons", work. Whether any DAW software has large enough mouse areas/buttons : read; few enough functions to strike a balance for you, I don't know.

    Cubase is so small and fiddly, I can only image that you are looking for something just to do the basics - track select, play, stop, record, go home. On a Mac this could possibly be scripted fairly easily with a GUI, on a PC, no guess.
