    here is a quick question

    I was wondering if i were to buy an X Touch Compact, how many xtenders could I combine with the master unit in total?

    Would I be able to connect enough to control 24 or 32 channels in total? Is it possible to connect even more? so as to give control for even 48 channels?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi JusRoc1, If connecting via the limit is 254 devices as this is dictated by the protocol. However, if you were to use the X-TOUCH and X-TOUCH extender and connect via ethernet In theory the number of devices is unlimited. However, in practice, this would never be able to be proven.

      Hi Chris, thanks for your reply and info. I was a little confused with regards to the question. Not so much due to the limitations of the MIDI protocol, but more so to do with the limitation of the HUI restrictions. Although perhaps the channel basic controls isn't included in this? I am not sure. Thanks again

    Hope someone can help advise I am interested in the customisation features of the X Touch Extender,

    and was wondering what exactly could be done with the customisation software, in particular with regards to

    its use with the rotary encoders numbers 9 - 16.

    I was wondering if it would be possible to use the customisation software to permanently set  these rotary encoders into fx sends 1 - 8, so that they can be used to constantly adjust effect sends to what ever channel is selected at the time.

    I would be really grateful if someone could clarify for me as to whether this can be done or not using this compact DAW control surface.

      PedroRodrigues Hi JusRoc1 please consider that the X-TOUCH COMPACT is a controller unit and the software control and customization stage is performed on a DAW or any other control software you wish to implement.
      It is on this stage where you customize and implement the type of control you are required to control any specific encoders on this unit.
      I would suggest checking some DAW and MIDI developers to find specific customization solutions for the encoders you mentioned.
      Thank you

    I've been looking for something to replace my DAW transport remote since it was made obsolete by a Mac OS update a few years ago. I've just come across the Behringer X-TOUCH MINI Midi Controller and it looks like a good candidate for the job, but my problem is this...

    My live room where I want to use the remote is separated from my control room by a sealed soundproof "Room within a room" structure. I already tried the Logic Remote using a borrowed iPad and the wi-fi signal is too weak to run it successfully. Not only that, since it is Apple's fault that my old remote no longer works, there is no way I'm gonna fork out £hundreds for an iPad!

    Whilst the
    Behringer X-TOUCH MINI Midi Controller appears to have more than enough functions for my needs, Amazon have told me that it will only work on USB2. My problem is that I have one USB connection sealed into the wall, but it is a 10metre standard cable, so it doesn't work. They didn't warn me of the length issue when they installed it. The only other way I have to get the signal to my DAW is to use USB to Ethernet converters and use my ethernet link that is also sealed into the live room.

    So I need to know whether the controller will work with either...
    A> Some USB booster plugs on either end of the USB cable, or
    B> Using the ethernet link with USB adaptors on both ends.

    Any ideas?

    So I have a xTouch (full version) and 3 xTouch Extenders. They are connected via USB to each other (daisy-chained). I am trying to use them in Logic, but the 3 extenders are showing up with the same name inside of Logic and the software does not know what to do with it. The 3 extenders pick up the channels correctly in logic (channels 9 thru 32), but the 1st extender (2nd in the chain) keeps controlling all 3 extenders (i.e. channel 9 controls 9, 17, 25 etc...). But extenders 2 and 3 do not do anything if I move them.

    Is there a way to rename the extenders so that Logic seems them as separate units?

      DaveMorrison Someone on this forum has solved this issue before. You might be able to search for it. As I recall, they connected all (or most) of the units via ethernet instead.

    good afternoon, can i use an eero pro or apple airport router to sync a x32 rack with an x-touch?

    I follow all the steps with dhcp, but it doesn't sync. with any tp-link they work fine

    After e-mailing Behringer numerous times and not getting a reply (customer service really sucks) I've decided to ask the group. Has anyone managed to convert the X-touch to run off 12V DC?

      DavidKnighton Hello BalRayat,
      Are you emailing directly or are you submitting inquiries via the SUPPORT tab? You can't email support directly with new inquiries, you must first submit the inquiry via the SUPPORT page. Also, check your SPAM/JUNK folders as often is the case when you don't hear from the support team. As for running the X-Touch off of 12V DC, that would be extremely difficult to pull off. You would have to isolate the 120V AC SMPSU circuit and find where the DC voltage branches off to the rest of the system. It appears that the majority of the system runs off 5V and 3.3V DC, since the whole device is just data/control mechanisms and there's no audio opamp circuitry.
