Bug Description

This is more a this-feature-would-be-great, than a bug report, but here we go:

The plugin is perfectly usuable on a touchscreen already, but it would be really great, if it was in a kind of sidepanel of rhythmbox and you had a long way to move the (when possible bigger) sliders, that way one could control it more efficiently on a touchscreen

i know, that i can resize the popup, but then it is always overlaying something else and needs to be moved around

I'll make a mock-up in glade interface designer for you to take a look at, when I get a chance (probably this coming weekend). Might be able to offer an alternate GUI tuned for tablets. I don't anticipate it requiring too much code; if it does, I probably won't work on it, as I don't use any tablet devices on desktop Linux myself (just Android).

Just an update: I'm going to check with the Rhythmbox core developers to see if they have any suggestions for making better touch-friendly slide-out panels. If GNOME platform already supports a similar UX paradigm, we can re-use it for rbpitch. If not, it would probably be better to get the UI done right in GTK/Gnome libraries and then just use it for rbpitch.
