GR with touch-screen and Maschine
Hey I'm working on a GR setup for my home studio. Playing the guitar I'm rather looking for ways to build interesting sounds but I don't really have to switch presets while playing. So I don't need foot switches etc but using the mouse a lot is also not a thing I like while making music.
The display hinges of my otherwise fine windows laptop are completely broken, so I thought 'why not buy a nice touch-screen monitor for it'. Before investing money I connected my iPad as a second touch display for testing. And that's so much fun! It's only that I regularly try to touch the display on my Maschine Controller now.. 😅
The iPad solution is not natively supported by windows, so I still have a few questions, maybe someone already uses a touch-screen and can help me. And I'd really like to know about your experience with touch.
After a lot of frustration I found the touch-screen mode in GR, so now I can change parameters via touch. But scrolling down through the presets or the device chain does not work. I always drag/drop the items that I touch instead. Does a natively supported screen have a special gesture for scrolling in these cases?
Since I have a Maschine Mk3 I also want to host GR inside Maschine so I can use the buttons and knobs. Instead of loading every device inside GR it would be interesting to combine it with other VSTs in the Maschine FX chain. Then bypassing, editing and changing devices can also be done with the Mk3. Still I'd like to use the touch-screen. But every VST by NI that I tried has knobs that are overly sensitive towards touch. It's quite impossible to dial in a value except max or min. Is there any solution for this? It has been like that in GR before activating touch-screen mode. But Amplitube, Nembrini and so on seem to work just fine with touch.
And if there are some who use Maschine with GR: It seems the GR macros are dynamically mapped to the knobs on the hardware. But only the first 8? How would I go about saving presets including the macros so that I can easily load them in Maschine?
On Maschine Mk3, If you hold down shift while moving a knob, the changes happen in smaller increments and you can be quite precise.
Hope this helps :-)
Thanks, good to know this for Maschine. The problem on touch screens stays, though. Would be nice to hear from the devs. I bought a touch screen monitor and updated to windows 11 but I still can‘t find a good way to scroll the device chain, presets etc. Shouldn‘t touch screen mode offer something like two fingers = scrolling?
I tried 3rd party software for custom gestures but that‘s not really intuitive to use.0
Oh and double tap on a preset does not load it while I‘m sure that worked on Windows 10.0
Maschine is usable on Win10 with touch screen. Better to use pen. I use Maschine on MS Surface 7 Pro. It is something like iPad.
I guess, it would be similar for GR, but I may try, if you want.0
Sorry, I forgot to make it clear that I was talking about Guitar Rig there. Maschine works nicely! But on Guitar Rig there is neither a scroll bar to use nor did I succeed in scrolling any other way without the mouse.
Do you have also Guitar Rig?0
GR6 works.... Somehow.... If using pen. The scrollbar shows up when you touch right side.
But I had problems turn knobs on certain cabinets, others were possible. The best has worked using macro knobs...
Generally, it is not very much usable using touch screen even with pen, not speaking about just fingers. IMHO.0
Have you tried the touchscreen mode in the settings? I'll try your tip with the right side the next days.0
After setting Touchscreen Mode on it seems to work fine. At the first glance. No comprehensive testing, just minute, two.
Still better with pen, but probably workable even with fingers.1
