I think when the new Microsoft multi-touch operating system comes out (next version of windows), computer sequencing and DVS (aside from scratching) will pretty much move over to controller-less setups with something like an HP Smartouch, the software, and that's it. Star Trek:TNG was way ahead of its time, I'll tell you. This touch stuff is sooooo natural. If you have touch, a controller is moot because the screen already shows a bend wheel, faders, buttons, etc. I'm mostly amazed at how reliable it is. I was expecting buttons not to click on first tap. Things to be gimmicky. Not so. Matthew may be right about the small pitch changes, though. Since multitouch is not out yet, it's hard to know if that will be a problem or not. A very big pitch fader line, arc, or something else could possibly solve the finesse issue. The pushing of buttons, moving of tracks around, and a lot of other functions will definitely move touchscreen, though.
