supporting touch specifically requires 2 things:
a) a user interface that has a distinct gesture for both the start
of a touch and its end
b) an explicit way to convey the use of this gesture to a
when using the mouse, we get button press and release events, which
satisfy both (a) and (b). when using external hardware controllers,
many lack anything that can satisfy (a). those that do make things
quite complex - for example there is a tascam controller which sends 2
different MIDI CC's when you move a fader, one to indicate the
onset+end of a touch, and another to signal actual fader moves. this
works well if you have a design that takes this sort of thing into
account, but is horrible otherwise.

i have seen quite a few reports recently that involve the Calf
plugins, most of them not so great (i..e crashes etc). i have some
suspicions that they do GUI operations from an illegal thread.
