Anyone using a windows 10 tablet for rig manager?

  • I’m 51 and have worn glasses for short sightedness for years, but in recent times my near view is falling rapidly.


    I was in the camp of I don’t need no stinking editor, I’ve owned the Kemper since soon after release and know it backwards.


    So times have changed and I now use a magnifying glass to edit ?am now patiently awaiting the editor.


    I require a portable solution, a tablet would be ideal, I have a IPad Pro which since the dedicated OS has just about removed my need for a desk or lap top machine, but alas I doubt I’ll see an iOS editor in my lifetime?


    I hardly touched a windows machine in years but it may be the answer.


    So do any of you used a windows tablet fo rig manager?, any suggestions, any problems?, I’ve been eying of some used Microsoft surface 3’s that can be had for a reasonable price but really have no idea.

  • I use a Microsoft Surface Pro 2017. I run Win 10 pro.

    RM has been zero problem with this setup for 2 years.

    Just don't use Win 7 as Kemper has stated that RM 3 won't support that.


    I'm using MS Surface Book 2 with Windows 10, also no problems


    Thanks for your feedback guys ??

  • I use a relatively inexpensive Surface Pro copy (Acer Switch Alpha) and if you’re only using touchscreen it might be a frustrating experience. The virtual knobs don’t move in alignment with how I drag my finger (eg slowly moving rig volume jumps from 0-6-12db).


    Maybe it’s user error which if so, please let me know what I’m doing wrong!!

    Thanks for your info. Someone else is using a Lenovo touchscreen tablet and says it works amazingly.

  • A Surface Book (1st gen) is one of my development machines :)

    Yeah I think I’ll look at a an older surface pro, the more budget oriented machines that I have touched seem a little unresponsive, the thing that hooked me on IOS was the smoothness of response, the way it flowed to your touch.

  • Thanks Phil. It appears the individual above your post is experiencing the same. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for an update that could help but I won’t hold my breath. I know we’re a smaller use case against everything Kemper is doing. Loving the editor regardless!!

  • Yeah please anything good or bad to say about windows tablets would be appreciated, l’ll personally wait for a stable release of RM3 before I invest.
