Exclamation Touch Screen Turntables

Weird stuff! Call me old fashion but I like to let my music & skills do the talkin' as apposed to my equipment. I can't say this really interests me right now, but I'm sure though some of you out there will really dig this new technology.

Looks like a freakin scale. Like your suppose to use your feet to mix. What's the company slogan "not only can you mix with it, you can keep an eye on your weight as well".

I can't picture making those feather light pitch adjustments on a touch screen. I love my industry standard Pioneer CDJ's & CD's. I'm still apprehensive of even using a laptop.

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.

Technologically it's pretty cool.

OTOH - From a practical standpoint I see it as a solution desperately in search of a problem.

I'd think the reverse--my concern would be how well it would stand up to more exuberant gestures. One thing I love about my MIDI controller is that I can really hammer on it.

Most of this touch stuff is about electrical conductivity, or something. How hard you hit it doesn't make any difference. You just don't want to break the glass or damage the LCD underneith.
