Behringer X-touch

Is anyone in the Ableton world using a Behringer X-Touch (either model)? I'm interested to see whether it works well with Ableton and could be a contender as a replacement for the BCF-2000 or alternative to the Novation Launchcontrol XL. I'm yet to really see anything on this and keen to know more. If you have one please rate your experience thus far.

It definitely has its advantages over controllers like the Launchcontrol as it sports motorised faders and more buttons to play with.

    I also didn't find any video where somebody used Ableton with the X-Touch. I want to see how it works with two X-Touch in cascade.

    There are some video's about the X-Touch, but you can't actually see how it works in Ableton itself.

    Hi everyone,

    I don't own any X-Touch, but they claim to have a Mackie HUI mode. If you select Mackie HUI as a Control Surface and X-Touch as the controller in Live's Prefs, you should be able to control at least volume, pan for each track an transport.

    I would also like to use either the X-Touch or the X-32 with live.

    Currently, I use the Xtouch with Push 2 and they work fairly well together with live right out of the box. Some buttons on the Xtouch won’t function with Ableton according to the graphics/labels on the Xtouch and some you’ll have to map manually using software like Bomes.

    I have the X-Touch Compact Fader (just picked it up)... BUT... when I touch the faders, Ableton is not tracking to what is selected.  Thoughts on how I get this to work?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    Just received my X-Touch Compact and it works using MC Mode (just press the channel 1 select button on the lower left corner (says MC next to it). Unfortunately the Faderposition is no properly synced with ableton. If the Fader in Ableton is set to 0db it goes up to +3db on the X-Touch. They just send meter positions via MC protocoll and not the values of the gain. So you need a overlay or some fix for this. I already suggested it in the ableton 10 centercode. search for it and +1 it, so they solve the issue. Maybe also contact behringer.

     

    Cheers
