    Been playing with a Behringer xtouch extender. Pretty easy to setup. I have it connected via a Microsoft surface touch pad computer.

    Faders, mutes, channel strips all work.

    Running a X-Touch full and a X-Touch Extender in different configurations (single or both) via rtpMidi. Works fine, except for the VU Meters on the x-touches.

    I'm using an Icon Platform X+ controller.
    Pros: Price, seems to be well built, you can configure buttons to send any CC so you can use an "X+ extender" and remap some of the buttons to be used as channel/bank up/down.
    Cons: No display that shows channel names (you can buy a display but I don't know what info it will show as I don't have one).

    I'm still using the old CM Labs Motomixes. You can pick them up on EBAY at decent prices. They run from a MIDI connection. And it will take an IC change on the inside if you plan to run two or three in series (16 or 24 faders at the same time). They re built like a tank.

    Hi TomyN, Bob or anyone - does the standard MidiCtrl_Behringer_BCF2000_16-Ch.mct that comes with SAC work with the Behringer X-Touch Compact Universal USB Controller?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I'm using the x-touch and the x-touch extender only because of the scribble strip.
    The both offer a MCU setting, which works fine with the Mackie_Mcu_ midi files.

    So I'd suggest that you use the MCU mode of the x-touch compact. The BCF2000 might work also, but I assue that it would requiere some programming of the unit.

    I'm using 2 BCF2000 and a BCR2000 for the channel strip.
    Old but works great.
