Behringer X-Touch control surface
« on: January 25, 2014, 07:04:51 PM »
Behringer has displayed their X-Touch control surface at NAMM 2014 with Mackie Control and HUI protocols and X32 mixer serie remote control (especially for the rack one). They will also offer cheaper very too with less feature set.

That seems a refreshing offer for DAW control at (I hope) an affordable price.

Yes, I think Behringer have certainly been stepping up their game this past year, with the x32 mixers and now this control surface and the motor keyboards.

Yes I agree Behringer have really found a nice niche on the market..  They have not released much good products since the V-amp products 10 years ago which was a worthy alterntive to the Line 6 POD at the time, but the last year with the X32 they have really reborn this company,  really offering unseen functionality for this price..  Behringer will force the market to follow I think motorised fades will not be something we only seen in very expensive products from now on but on cheaper ones too...

I will most likely buy the X-Touch, not sure which one maybe the compact or the standard, of the mini version is cheap I might buy it too...you never have enough of knobs.
