X-Touch multiple simultaneus operations with RX18

Hi all,
general stupid question from a future x-touch owner.
What happens if I move two fadeders simultaneously?
Or, in general, what happens if I do more than one thing simultaneously?
Does the mixer (XR18) works in a sort of multitasking way, like an analog console?

Thank you.

Hi @nonsonstatoio 

You can move eight fader and the mixer will respond. You can hook up 2 X-touch and move 16 faders at once if you have enough fingers.

I have another question.
I guess you are an owner of x-touch.
Can you tell me if it is usable without any other pc/tablet connecter to the mixer.
I mean, is it usable as the only interface to the mixer?

You can even move multiple faders at once on a touch screen with the X Air Edit and Mixing Station apps.

Hi Enrico,

 

I personally find it somewhat difficult to use standalone.  Using those little LCD panels to set channel gain, eq, gate, etc is not as efficient for me vs. using a mouse with XAir Edit.  When I use the X-Touch I use it in combination with a great utility from Bart Van Damme ( @BartVanDamme ) that links the X-Touch with XAir Edit running on a Raspberry Pi.   Basically, the utility changes the XAir Edit screens as you press buttons on the X-Touch making the screens follow the controller actions.  

 

Hope this helps, 

Ken

Yes. It works. You can't recall scenes though. And as others have mentioned, I find it hard to adjust EQ, and dynamics with the X_Touch—maybe I don't have enough practice. I use a tablet for that.

Yes I agree that you really need to use a screen of sort sort, either a tablet or a laptop, to be able to monitor what is actually happening on the XR18.
