Original zip: https://bitbucket.org/Klinkenstecker/csurf_klinke_mcu/downloads/reaper_csurf_mcu_klinke.zip

Updates:

The 32bit version of v0.8.2.1 can be downloaded from https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2029458/Reaper/v0_8_2_1/reaper_csurf_mcu_klinke.dll

For the 64bit version I currently have only v0.8.0.5 online: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2029458/Reaper/reaper_csurf_mcu_klinke_v0_8_0_5.zip



I've got it up and running with Reaper. I downloaded Klinke's latest.

Under options/preferences/surface control I've selected Mackie Universal (Klinke's) and for midi in and midi out I've selected X touch.

Not everything works though. My faders are not touch sensitive. When I touch each fader it won't highlight the corresponding track . Not sure if this is something I've done wrong or if it's Reaper. The transport section also doesn't operate. The buttons light up when I touch them, but I can't nudge or set markers with these buttons.

Global View doesn't seem to do anything with the corresponding buttons. And along the top of the unit under Coder Assign the TRACK button can not be selected (won't light up).

Any tips? Cheers.

About to update to new firmware V1.15 to see if this fixes my problems

Fader touch does not work yet, not even in the Klinke MCU variation

Before it failed X Touch was working rather well with REAPER and I was expecting it to be even better with KlinkeMCU as you can programme most of the buttons using the REAPER actions menu

The Klinke manual gives a good and detailed 'how to' for helping set it up

Any updates after the firmware change?

Hi Timothy

Yes a few!!!

Having returned my unit to Thoman in Germany as faulty, I ordered a new one but this did 't work straight out of the box either....

The problem with REAPER and Windows XP is with the USB drivers

On my computers (PC and laptop) the USB driver appears twice with an identical name (USB Audio Device (2)

The two drivers do not appear to be the same and must be installed in the correct order in the MIDI devices in and out boxes and dropdown menus etc.

I do have the X Touch working quite well and when it finally gets sorted out by Behringer and Cockos REAPER then it will be a fine set up

I just ordered the X Touch and I use Reaper as my main daw.

Is everything working so far with the X Touch and the latest Klinke Updates or are there things still not working 100%?

Thanks!
