DAW Controller Touch Screen

Hi,

Are touch screen DAW Controllers any good?

1) DAW Remote for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on the iTunes App Store

2) DAW touch screen

What are the advantages of using the touch screen to control say for example a Shuttle/Jog Wheel (as found on the AWS 924/948 or any other analogue DAW control capable console) rather than using the traditional wheel which you can actually grab?

Would any of you prefer touch or the traditional method, if you were going to fork out 30k+ on a console?

SH.

I can only speak to the second of your choices. The DAW Touch works exactly as advertised. The question is how well your particular DAW adapts to touchscreen use. If there are a million little buttons that have right-click contextual dropdown screens that are integral to the DAW operation, then maybe a touchscreen isn't a great choice for that program. But the DAW Touch is a nice big screen that works well on PC and Mac. Caveat emptor.

There are a couple threads discussing touch screen monitors--I've been wanting to check one out myself but haven't got around to it. They sell them for as little as $250 on ebay or at computer stores, especially the Acer. I would check one of these out that has a return policy first...

Ipad -> 63 sq inches of screen

This one -> roughly 423 sq inches.

423/63 = 6.72 times the area.

$400 * 6.72 = $2690.


Scale it - price seems about right. Just checking around - it's about the same price for most 32 inch touch screens.

A related question, regarding two PT apps for the iPad: AC7 Pro and V Control Pro. The former has been out for at least a year or so (there's an SOS video review on YouTube from last summer); the latter looks fairly new.

Anyone have experience with either or both?

Not looking to replace our existing control surface but as a supplement—something that can control the HD rig from out in the live room or in one of the booths.

Thanks.
