Sourcing the best client to control your DAW with Touch Portal

So having established how useful I believe the “Touch Portal” app will be in my personal music workflow I decided I wanted to have a dedicated “client” positioned alongside my Control Surface to take over duties (for the most part) from my phone.

Credit to the developers they have bean able to maintain compatibility with older operating systems which allows the client to run really well on “economically sourced (second-hand) devices that at the least are able to run these specs. I looked at my local Pawnbroker to see the kind of devices that fit the bill:


Android 4.1 and upwards – EG:

(I also like the look of this: Lenovo Tab M10 HD 2nd Gen 10.1 Inch Android Tablet (Octa-Core 2.3GHz, 4GB RAM, 64GB eMMC, Android 10) – Iron Grey: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories)


iOS 9.3 and up:

EG iPad 4 and upwards

and of course EBAY and Facebook Marketplace are also great places to look if you are looking for a cheap device that fully supports touch portal 🙂
