Problem with touch and stylus interface
« on: June 14, 2016, 02:27:32 pm »
I am using a Microsoft Surface tablet (full Windows 10) to run Analog Lab 2. Although the resize feature is welcome, I now have other issues using it without a mouse.

* It is very difficult to hit anything by touch using a finger. This worked much better in AL1. It's as if the hit area for any selection is a lot smaller than it appears to be.

* The entire interface freezes when I use the active stylus. Again, it worked in AL1.

Is it just me or do others have similar problems? Maybe I'm the only one sitting at a piano with no proper desk or mouse. Anyway, I'm holding off with upgrading the entire V collection because of this. It simply will not work for me.

Hi laban77,

thanks for reporting this, we'll investigate further on this one. Just in case, could you download a demo version of another VC5 instrument, just to see if this issue still happens on all VC5 instruments?

Best,

Hi !

I'm not a tablet expert att all, but I saw users which had problems with the touch and VSTs.

In some cases, the issue disappeared by:

1/ Deactivating the Windows Ink feature.
Or
2/ Setting the Mode to Mouse instead of Pen.



It should work the same for most tablets brands (hopefully)

I worth to have a try.

Best

Ed

Sorry that I haven't checked back to this topic for so long. I returned here because there is a nice offer right now to upgrade the V Collection.

I tried the demo version of the new CS-80, with mixed results. Piano keys, pitch strip, sliders and knobs works perfectly fine with touch. Sadly all buttons (on/off type) do not work at all with touch. Neither does the menu at the top (apart from previous/next sound).

It's really an interesting upgrade offer but I can't spend that kind of money for something half-working. Is this something you are working on? Can I expect a fix for these issues if I were to go with the current upgrade offer?

This video shows pretty much the problems (not just in AL2 but in the whole V Collection 5):

* Touch doesn't work for menus.
* Touch works sometimes when just pressing items (sometimes double-click works).
* Touch works brilliantly for knobs and sliders.

Like he says it's nearly there, and just imagine how close we are to a portable 17-in-1 analog synth by just placing a Microsoft Surface on the music stand!
