Touch Screens with Max/MSP/Jitter
I have a current project building a MIDI Interface/Performance patch in Max/MSP
I have little knowledge of Jitter/Video but am thinking of using a touch screen panel in my interface to connect to my laptop.
Does anyone know if it is possible in Jitter to output to dirctly output to a seperate video out on my laptop running to the touch screen and also If a touch screen could supply a suitable input to max? Is it just a like a PS2 like mouse input?
This is only a rough idea so Im trying to see if it is worth me puchasing a touch screen+ jitter to try it out?
Any Ideas would be great
I use a touchscreen to control my max patches (not especially Jitter).
It’s a great interface.
it basicaly emulates a mouse (click, drags…) It’s much faster and
convenient than a mouse.
(no multitouch ; you will need a Lemur for that http://
I use a Elotouch monitor : http://www.elotouch.com/Products/LCDs/
before u buy a touchscreen, just check that it has drivers for your
os… (Elotouch took a loooong time to make working mac intel
Interesting. I didn’t know they even had drivers. I had to use the
ridiculously expensive Touchbase drivers in 2005 connected via an USB/
serial interface to the Macs.

Thanks for the great advice. I think I will try it out and see how it goes.
