Reviews
Behringer X-TOUCH Universal Control Surface, 9 Touch-sensitive motorized faders, 8 Rotary controls with LED-collars is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Check compatibility with your DAW first All the comments here are based on the "out of the box experience", you may be able to modify the behaviour in your DAW, or using 3rd party patches. The Good Solidly made, apart from the slightly mobile jog wheel, the faders and pots have a great feeling of well made solidity. It's heavy for its size which again gives a feeling that it will last The motorised faders move smoothly, albeit slightly noisily The amount of controls that you have should cover every need you have(I'll come back to "should" later on) Touch sensitivity is great, just touching a fader makes that track live, and if you have set it to works have latch after touch, write after elect and so on, it saves many selection mouse clicks) The Bad Firstly, the promo pics show the "Scribble strip" windows having different background illumination colours(Great, I thought, drums red, vocals green etc) - Well I can't change the colours from a default bluey white) The functionality totally depends on the DAW With Cubase, you get around 80% of what you might expect With tools 11, that drops to 40% With Premiere that drops to 20% What do I mean by that? I mean that if you are running Premiere - 80% of the buttons, even that really basic ones, do nothing....nothing The scribble strip in Cubase can generate 2 lines of text, in ProTools , only one Particularly annoying is that "Flip" button, only works in Cubase, that really is basic functionality. Net, net Outstanding solid, functional, well priced for what it is - but it could be a useless paper-weight if you don't check exactly what your DAW supports. Behringer need to bring out a plug-in that auto installs to increase the functionality in all the DAW's. Not fully supporting ProTools is really stupid, and given that AVid want you to buy their control surface, waiting for Avid to to it it might be a very disappointing experience. As I said in my disclaimer about "Out of the box" review at the top, maybe there are plugins that make this device sing, but I haven't found any so far(1 month) Let me again be clear, yes you can parameterise within the DAW, but I can see no way that these switch assigns do the more useful functions (such as flipping, dual line display, reading all time codes , touch sensitivity(which is so good, but not generally supported)
