Yes! It's time for Rekordbox touch screen and gestures support!


I use rekordbox from the start, usually just with my laptop linked to two pioneer nexus players. Of course I can browse music and lists on the players, but I prefer to do it on the laptop as it provides a bigger screen and easier searching/sorting options. I recently bought a new laptop (Acer Spin) with a touchscreen and I think as more and more people are using touch screens it would really be very nice to perfect how rekordbox behaves with a touch screen.

I don't think much work is needed TBH, rekordbox already provides excellent options to change the GUI size and behavior, but a few scrolling and keyboard input fixes and I think many many DJ's would be very happy, not having to use their keyboard/touchpad anymore.

Would be greatly appreciated!

It would be great if any rbdj touchscreen users could let us know additional info on what works well and what doesn't.  Can you scrub through tracks, set hot cues, apply affects etc?  Also anyone using larger 21"+ touchscreens and if so, how is that experience?  Links to vids would be much appreciated as well.  Thanks

It seems to me that in order to make RB touch "ready", only one thing is needed, and I don't think it's a big fix.

Text input (the search box & value input fields) needs to give a "signal" to the OS that a text input field has been clicked. The OS then decides based on whether a hardware keyboard is present to show the onscreen keyboard or not.

Right now, I have to activate the keyboard separately from the taskbar, which is only a small step, but it does make things like using RB6 full screen more problematic.

Also, after activating the keyboard from taskbar, the keyboard keeps being activated when any track is selected. (in other words, RB6 already gives Windows "text input selected" signals, just not at the right moment)

To me this seemingly small fix would make RB6 touch ready.

Scrolling in the browser would perfect touch support.
