Behringer X-Touch Buttons playing Instruments

Post by ridge »

Im using this to control Cubase and Groove Agent 4. I like the fact that you can select the track with Groove Agent 4 or SE and press the instrument button and page through to automation and set up the V-Pots to control the functions of individual instruments like Tuning, Room, Overhead on toms & snares or attack on Bow, Bell and Edge of cymbals. Much less hassle that faffing about with a mouse in one hand and a drumstick in the other.

Everything works fine as long as you take the time to read the Remote Control Devices for Mackie MCU Pro and use a template

The only issue I have with is is that when buttons are pressed on the X-Touch it sounds an instrument in groove agent, e.g. a cymbal or a drum. Does anyone know how to silence it. All I want is the functionality of the buttons not to play instruments.

cheers

I know that this is an older post but I am interested in purchasing an X Touch. Can you in fact use it to learn midi CC or control any VST instrument parameters with the faders or knobs besides using it as a mixer?
