    A while back there was a video of Atomic at NAAM that demonstrated the editor on touchcreen Windows tablet. In video, Tom King (or perhaps it was Marc Gallo) literally twisted the knob on the screen to make a change. It's one thing for it to look good in demo and to handle real world usage.

    Anyone use a touchscreen with the editor? If so, what's your platform and how well does that work?

    Pontificating here:
    • I doubt this would work on anything other than a Windows Tablet. Would love an Android/iOS versions of the editor (Which the UI framework Atomic uses does support. There would be things to work out in terms of connectivity. VirtualHere does work on these platforms, and we're starting to see more ipads with usb-c).
    • It's a complicated dream, but would love to see a remote view on a touch tablet via sidecar (https://www.macstories.net/stories/sidecar-in-ios-13-and-macos-catalina-working-seamlessly-between-an-ipad-and-mac), vnc, etc. going back to the editor running on a laptop.
    • The desire for touch screen is an indication how cumbersome the current editor is to edit values (at least in my experience on a Mac laptop with a touchpad).

    really?? i very much disagree with that. i've handled lots of modelers' and effect pedals' editors and the AAF editor is by far one of the most (if not the most) user friendly and easy to work with editor out there. even more so considering the amount of features the unit packs in. sure there are minor things to correct like the IR import/scroll system for example but apart from that its a great great program. and it's portable too

    And you simply touch and twist the knobs as if they are "real"?

    The editor works fine with a touch device but I personally prefer using it with traditional keyboard and mouse setup

    Nope (sorry @Jace Nuzback), I don't think so. But it's almost as simple as that: You click on them and drag up or down. Twisting (I'm pretty sure) actually does nothing.
