First time poster, I've been using Max for a few years now but have only recently integrated it with my live performance setup, primarily as a MIDI router for my guitar gear (usually an FCB1010 footboard and Sansamp PSA1 through an UA-25 audio interface to a Macbook Air). I've been thinking about getting a touchscreen laptop, but am uncertain of the prospects of running the Max runtime in Windows (8?) and using touch for basic interactions and settings adjustments.
I'm aware that Max isn't multi-touch compatible, I'm not too concerned about that and would just like reliable single touch events. I'm hoping to get the performance benefits of using a standard laptop for audio and MIDI processing in realtime while taking advantage of a touchscreen interface to monitor and tweak my guitar processing setup (primarily through Max). I'm NOT looking for another tablet or dedicated piece of touch hardware. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or advice, thanks!
