      Hi Mikel ( @soundcheck ), 


       


      Welcome to the community.  When you extracted the X-Touch Editor zip archive a folder called "default layer" should have been created.  In that folder is "compact" and "mini". In the "mini" folder there are two files called LayerA.bin and LayerB.bin.  Load these presets into the X-Touch Mini using the X-Touch Editor. This will restore the factory defaults.

    To start, I ‘ve already set my X-Touch internally to “Mackie Control and USB”

    And did the same for my DAW (Digital Performer 9)

     

    1. Even when my X-Touch is disconnected, from the computer,

    When I turn on the power to the X-Touch and move any fader to any position,

    after about two seconds the fader returns back to the zero position.

     It does the same thing when my X-Touch is connected to the computer.

     Thank you in advance for your help.

     

    1. When the X-Touch is powered on,  I get no colored lights.
       whether is connected to the computer are not.
       All I get are the lights to the scribble  Strip  and the jog wheel.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

     

     

    1. I don’t know if this makes a difference to my problems I’m having,

    With my X-Touch, but I only have my X-Touch connected via a USB cable.

     When I set up the control surface section in Digital performer version 9,

    it identifies my X-Touch connection options:

     

    As “INT-1” (I am assuming this is for the input selection)

    And

    As “EXT-1” ( I am assuming this is for the output selection)

     

    Also my X Touch is located In the “unconfigured ports section.”
    I will try to research what this means.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

      Hi @Jaxsn ,


       


      When not connected to a computer the faders on my X-Touch act the same way.   By lights, I assume you mean the button LEDs. This is also normal when not connected to a computer and when not properly configured in a DAW.  There's nothing to tell the button LEDs to light up. 


       


      I don't use DP but I'll see if I can download a trial version to help you out.  Are you on Windowss or Mac?

    I am very disappointed in this x-touch product.
    I can not use this with digital perform 9........
    After I plugged the USB in, the x-touch is just a $600
    paperweight I wish I knew this ahead of time.
    I'm going back to my BFC & BCR 2000, or a different brand.

    can anyone help me

      Hi @Jaxsn ,


       


      Welcome to the community.  What research have you done? Have you visited any site to find out what others have been able to do with DP9 and the X-Touch? 


       


      You might want to Google "x-touch digital performer 9" or mackie mcu pro digital performer 9". 


       


      The X-Touch is a Mackie MCU Pro clone with improvements. 


       


       


      Hope this helps, 


      Ken

      As Ken mentioned, The X-Touch is a clone of the Mackie Control. Since these units are dumb (not programmable), all functionality is supplied by the DAW (DP). The best place to ask these questions is at motu nation.


      Are you using a mac or PC?

    Hi Guys,

     

    Loving my X Touch and wanting to connect some footswitches but can't find any info on what is compatible.

    I have a couple of non-latching switches, but they don't seem to be working...

    Any advice?

      What are you controlling with the XTouch? I believe the footswitch and expression inputs only work in MC and HUI modes - controlling a DAW. The footswitches would normally be momentary (non-latching).

    Hi,

    I remember seeing somewhere you can switch the x touch between using it as a mixer controller (XR18) and a DAW controller. But I don't remember and can't find it...

    Is this possible? I work with ableton live and use the XR18 as audio interface. I need control both over the interface and ableton live, and it would be awesome to do this with 1 controller!

    thanks

      Yes. Hold down Select on channel 1 as you power up. Then choose Xctl/MC (and the networking mode or MIDI DIN connection to the XR18). 


      Press the SMPTE/Beats button to switch between XR18 and DAW.

    I've just bought the behringer UMC22 as it was advertised to be good value for money, there is however an issue that has been highlighted on an Amazon review. Inst 2 doesn't work after setting up. 

    I'm using the interface with guitar rig 5 and it works a charm if i plug the guitar into Line 1, but when I plug into inst 2 i get a signal i.e the green signal light flashes but no audio at all. this hjas been raised on Amazon after I checked some of the reviews, and aledgedly behringer are aware of this issue.

    Any ideas for a fix as I'm on the verge of sending this back for a refund if I can't get it working as it should.

      Same issue here too. Help is appreciated.

      jehanlabyrinth If you're on Windows PC go to Control Panel > Sound > Select your Behringer UMC22 under recording tab > Properties > Advanced tab > Select 2 channels instead of 1 channel. That was also my initial problem and it turns out that it has something to do with the settings. Just make sure you guys select the same settings matching your DAW or recording will not work. Hope this helps.

    I bought the all access Slate plugins to hopefully use with my X32 compact for LIVE mixing.

    Now I've been told I need a host software...DAW... to use the Slate plugins.

     

    I was told by someone in a pro audio department to use Cubase.

    But I don't want to spend any money on software until I can figure out what's going on.

     

    ??!! I need help !!??

      The goto daw on the cheaper side is Reaper. You can evaluate it for some time and then pay a minor $60 for it.


      You can also try Ardour which is completely free.


      While not free, LiveProfessor is commonly used as a plugin host when a daw is an overkill.

    It may seem obvious, but just in case anyone was wondering how to get tracks 1-8 to appear on your Extender, and tracks 9-16 on the main X-Touch in Ableton, here is what to do:

    Go to your preferences in Ableton, and then on to the LINK/MIDI tab. Remove all control surfaces in the top section, so that all are set to NONE. Then, simply set up the Extender unit first, and the main X Touch second. Channels 1-8 will then be assigned to the extender.

    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:

      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

    Hi! I bought the X-Touch Extender and I am planning to use it exclusively for the cc midi controllers spaecially CC#1,7,11,21 . I tried my best to let it work but with no luck. I am using Logic pro x and I don't have any other x-touch controllers.

    Please advice!

    Thank you

      Hi @SamsMusicFactor 


      The extender is not programmable. You'll have to make your assignments in Logic. I would try Ctrl mode first.

      Thank you! @DaveMorrison! It worked on kontakt with libraries but not yet with Logic on CC midi controllers. When using MC mode it works with logic.

      @SamsMusicFactor 


      The Extender is a weird beast. The only thing it seems to do well is MC (at least in logic). The reason I think Ctrl mode might work is that the Faders transmit CC in this mode as opposed to PitchBend when in MC mode. I think you would have to assign every Knob, Button and Fader in Logic to do what you want. @KenMitchell's advice is very sound as the compact is more versatile.

      @SamsMusicFactor 


      Nothing on the Extender can be changed (apart from the operating mode).


      Have you tried something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bm77G15H6zo

      @DaveMorrisonYes! I tried this and it works on instruments or any knotakt library, you can easily assign faders or encoders to already programmed libraries or intruments inside Logic. But I can't find a way to program midi controllers CC#. Maybe there is a way OR AS YOU GUYS SAID IT'S NOT RE-PROGRAMMABLE !!
