I think the pros and conts of user interaction with touch screens have 
been extensively studied and are widely available online (just google 
for it).
Regarding controllers the only advantage of using e.g. tablets for 
music-related stuff is the fact they are wireless (and in some case they 
may serve as performative elements because they are perceived as 'cool' 
by the audience..)

I found a post by Bret Victor [1] particularly interesting and 
thought-provoking (linked by alex from the eightycolumn mailing list [2]).
