    Default Anyone use the Smithson Martin Emulator Software?

    I am thinking of trying it out with an HP Touchsmart tablet and my S4. I would use Emulator to take care of non-latency critical jobs like browsing and well, whatever else. I plan on getting the trial download but wanted to see if anyone had any real experience with it?

    I have two lenovo m90z's in my restaurant.

    I was very tempted to try the software out on it, the m90z is a very large multi-touch interface.

    In the end I realised that after my ventures onto ipad + touchosc etc that it is largely the same but bigger. My one gripe with these touch interfaces is lack of tactile control. Moving a virtual knob with your fingers is not very fun for me. It is also hard to be accurate and fast I found.

    So tldr version, it is like a big version of touchosc, lack of tactile feedback its main downer.

    use virtual faders instead of knobs. colour-code them so that you can distinguish knobs-turned-faders from what was a fader to a begin with, if you cant just remember it. I think it much more useful than virtual knobs, plus you can jump between values.

    If you are use to using touch screens, then go for it.
    The only thing I would suggest is a large screen.
    Nothing smaller than 20".
    Mine is 23" and the Emulator software works great!
    Make sure to check their screen compatibility list too!

    You can test it as a demo first before you buy to make
    sure your screen will work the way you want it to.
