Topic: default vdj tablet mode skin for touchscreen tablets 9 inch or bigger

Hi, just a couple of things to improve your default touch screen for tablets.
First of all GOOD that VDJ actually has a tablet touch screen that works!!!!
Serato does NOT have that .
Your jogwheel/platters for turntables /tablets too SMALL! make it like 25-50% BIGGER ,take out the 6 hotcue buttons on each side and replace them with bigger platters . This can be especially useful for small 9 inch screens.

Your 8 pads for hotcues way too small make them huge! Put those pad selector/parameters boxes on each side of the pads and make them horizontal under the pads. Stretch out the hotcue pads to fill the space left so touchscreen users have enough space for drumming,like on a sampler pad. On a 10.1 inch tablet each pad should be at least 1 inch in size to be able to bang / drum on them easily

Also, please,please make those 7 vertical skin panel commands on each side of the skin midi mappable (assign each command to whatever keyboard key you choose) for anyone using a keyboard. It is very hard to map them currently.(at least for me)

You also need touch screen buttons for time code mode (line,relative absolute and smart) for each deck and clone deck

The eq skin panel sliders screen is excellent for touch screen, very nice touch but no reset back to 0 for each slider,but the circles eq panel does

Finally why does tablet default mode only have 2 decks? SERIOUSLY,you need to have a touchscreen deck selector like the default 6 deck mode (no you do NOT need to have 4- 6 jog wheels spinning on the screen at the same time,too confusing) but a deck selector to switch between you can, say have to decks one and two playing turntables(controllers etc) and the other decks on internal mode ( have loops /samples playing on the other decks so you can do some serious master mixes LIVE.

rechecked the multi touch screen skin like you mentioned, it has everything needed but needs to be modified . Bigger pads like stated and can the spinners be modified to a different solid color instead of the records,like white with a black line position marker. Basically can the colours be changed then it would be fine.

Exactly what I want to the tablet mode skin... I used DVS timecode set up.. I like the Tablet mode too and I like the bigger jogwheels on it.. perfect for my visual in my timecode vinyl. Also please make some option to change the gridView browser in Tablet mode change it to what in the default skin browser. So... yea, tablet skin needs to be modified. :)
