    Hi

    Today I've received my first x-touch mini (I'm using a x-touch and two x-touch extenders quite a while).
    After some test I got it working with my software, but there are some points where I would need help:

    • The unit seems not to send any 'Button released' midi messages ( while the x-touch does).
    • Is there a possibility to disable the button -> button LED link inside the x-touch mini? I'm controlling some switches in my software by the x-touch. The app sets the button LEDs according to the current state. When I set the options in the app directly, then the LED buttons reflect the state correctly. When I use the buttons, this does not work correctly, because the LED reacts to the release of the button..

    Regards

      Hi Tomy ( @TomyNeumann ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  What DAW are you using?  Does it have a driver for the mini? Do you have the mini set to MIDI or MC mode?  In MIDI mode, the button behavior is based on the mode set for the individual buttons, whether it be momemtary or toggle.  In both cases, a value of 127 is sent for a press or latch and a 0 is sent for a release or unlatch.  Also, in MIDI mode, the LED state needs to be set/unset with MIDI messages coming from the DAW.  In MC mode, the button behavior and LED state is dictated by the MCU driver in the DAW. 


       


      Hope this helps,


      Ken

      Hi Ken


      Thanks for your reply. I'm using my own app, which creates and handles MIDI. The x-touch mini runs in MIDI mode.
      Your statement is okay for the x-touch extender (and the x-touch full, I assume), but not for the x-touch mini.
      But the x-touch mini behaves different. Even with no midi handling device running, the state of the LEDs changes according to the state of the button.
      Furthermore the button does not send a NoteOn MIDI Message when the button is released.

      Well,


      The button release does not send Note On with velocity 0 but will send Note Off with velocity 0 (opposite to x-touch extender, where it will send Note On with velocity 0 when released).

    Using a new Behringer X-Touch Compact. Issue is the encoder knobs take two full wrist twists to go from 0-127 meaning I have to twist a knob twice to pan from left to right. If we grab a knob to sweep a filter or pan from left to right it's impossible to do it smoothly due ot having to twist the knob twice. It's basically taking twice the time to scan values from 0-127. Is anyone else having this issue? Sweetwater said their other units behave the same way. I cannot imagine an audio engineer putting up with this. Anyone know what's up? How do I make the knob behave normally (meaning a twist from 7 oclock to 5 oclock) ? Hoping to hang onto it. Need insight...

      Hi Jason ( @jsin ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  Are you using it with a mixer or with a DAW?  If a DAW, what DAW are you using?  Depending on the DAW, you may be able to increase your step size for the encoders. 


       


      Hope this helps,

      Hey KenMitchell , 


      I'm using with Abelton Live. I tried both MC & Hui mode. Tech support @ Sweetwater said they were experiencing the same issue. I spent two nights trying to find a solution. I've looked up scripts etc. but have never made or edited a custom controller script. Seems like an whole other can of worms. Are you aware of a way to make it work? Many thanks...

    Hi All, I've been a Behringer fan and user for years and stepped up to buying the x-Touch. Cubase Pro 10 recognizes the x-Touch in all three aspects of Studio setup (see images) but nothing works - actions in cubase don't register in x-touch, and moving sliders in x-touch have no effect in Cubase:

    Thank you, b

      Hi... I don't know if it will help you but I had to put my XTouch on Mackie Control (MC) setting... I found that HUI does not work... 


      You do this by holding the channel 1 select button down while you power on the device... then dial the first dial to MC... then dial the second dial to USB... 


      Then you press the select button again to reset the XTouch... 


      Hope this helps...

      Hi,


      beside Kingurus answer you also have to tell Cubase, that you're using a Mackie Control Unit. Do this in the studio setup (see your first screenshot). Add a new controller by pressing the little plus-symbol in the upper left corner of the window. Be aware that you add a Mackie control unit and that your device is turned on. On the  right side of this screen select x-touch as midi in and out device. Unselect x-touch as midi device on the other control devices (your 2nd and 3rd screenshot) or simply delete these controls as you don't need them really. Click apply, your x-touch should work now.


      Greetings
