MCU lcd

Post by djbony » 08 Dec 2019 02:35

Hi,

I bought a Behringer X-Touch and set it up with PF. Everything works, but I can't set the texts on the LCD. The MCU lcd command does nothing. Thank you for your help...

I guess I am not the right one to ask, as I don’t know that device nor it’s exact interface capabilities.
If everything works fine, but just the LCD update, it might be a limit of the Behringer?

X-touch has 8 displays. One for each fader. The MCU command does not tell which display to send data to. That's why it probably doesn't work ...

Maybe you should ask this to the Behringer support...?

Here is answer from Behringer...

Dear Petr,

Thank you for your contact.



Please be aware that for the functionally requirements that you stated you will need a controller that has MIDI CC functionality and the X-TOUCH was not designed as a MIDI CC controller.



The X-TOUCH was designed to interact specifically with MIDI messages to and from DAW and not TO transmit MIDI messages that are capable of transmitting a range of values, usually allows 128 different continuous controllers available for each MIDI channel.



The X-TOUCH COMPACT or X-TOUCH MINI are designed with MIDI CC functionality.

I don’t fully understand that answer, but it sounds the x-touch doesn’t fully support MIDI messages?!

I've already figured it out. XTouch has another LCD control header: 00 00 66 14. Could you add an MCU command - like lcdxtouch? This SysEx works: 0xF0 0x00 0x00 0x66 0x14 0x12 0x00 "*[STRING:{${outputmixer1name}}:{rpad}:{6}] " "*[STRING:{${outputmixer2name}}:{rpad}:{6}] " "*[STRING:{${outputmixer3name}}:{rpad}:{6}] " "*[STRING:{${outputmixer4name}}:{rpad}:{6}] " " " "*[STRING:{${inputmixer4name}}:{rpad}:{6}] " "*[STRING:{${inputmixer1name}}:{rpad}:{6}] " "*[STRING:{${inputmixer2name}}:{rpad}:{6}] " 0xF7

Hmm, I don’t really like to add hardware specific stuff, which is a non-standard.
If your sysex is currently working why adding something on top of it?

I guess you're right. But could you advise me? What function to use to display GAIN correctly on LCD? It gives me values ​​from 0-127 instead of -15 to +15. Thank you.
