[Boblev] X-Touch One
« on: December 23, 2018, 01:38:34 AM »
I'm attaching two files: (a) an SPP file with my current setup for using the X-Touch One with AZ controller; and (b) a PDF file with a table that shows the functions of all the keys on the X-Touch One using this preset.

In this version, I believe that all of the keys, meters, and other controls on the X-Touch One are working. I've assigned the F1 key on the X-Touch One to be the M1 modifier key found on the Mackie Controller. This provides the possibility of a second command for each key when pressed in combination with the M1 key.  In version 6.0 these second functions are assigned for most of the X-Touch One keys (see table in document file for all current assignments).

A few comments on the version 6.0 preset:

a. I am using the latest version of AZ controller (0.5r8) and the current version of Cakewalk by BandLab (Version: 2018.11 (Build 31, 64 bit).
b. I upgraded the X-Touch One to firmware version 1.07 and am using it in Mackie Control mode.
c. The level "meters" on Cakewalk for the selected channel are displayed on the LED strip on the X-Touch One except when the Master bus is selected (this is also the case when using the Mackie control surface interface that comes with Cakewalk).
d. The X-Touch One indicator lights should work properly for all the transport keys and the major channel keys (record, solo, mute) and will stay in "synch" with the same indicators in Cakewalk. The indicators also work and stay in synch for the keys that toggle looping and punch-in. The lights for the other custom keys (F1-F6, and the Marker-Solo row) are not active
e. To label the X-Touch One I used the LOGIC cutout that comes with the X-Touch One and added custom labels for the F1-F6 and Marker-Solo rows of keys. The rest of the labels on that cutout are pretty accurate for the functions of this preset.

I am happy to share this preset with other users if you think they would find it useful. I'm not 100% certain that I generated the .spp file correctly, but hope you can check and verify. Other users may want to make different assignments to the custom keys, add additional modifier keys (there is coding in your original controller for M1-M4 modifiers), and hopefully expand the indicator lights. The brilliance of your work is how it makes it possible for interested end users to make these kinds of changes. Bravo!

Thank you for sharing. I will later move your post into "Presets" section.

I can not test how it works, but at least I can confirm SPP is correct.

Interesting post.

I'm also trying to use an XTOne with my Sonar DAW. Didn't realise AZ Controller cold help with that. Couple of questions though.

  • What does 'M1' mean or signify for the F1 key
  • How do you create a 'selection' with the XTOne as implied by
    "Set Loop Times to Selection" for the Cycle button?

I do not have XTOne, but from the documentation...

F1/M1 (Modifier 1). When you use it other buttons change functionality, as in PDF.

I guess there is no key to set selection, assuming you are working with mouse as well. But as everything in AZ Controller you can add it yourself, if you need that and time time to do that.
