Learn how to use the Behringer X-Touch Universal controller with REAPER. What works, and what doesn’t, plus how to personalize it with additional REAPER actions on the unused buttons.
If you want to see what this can do out-of-the-box, look no further.

Basically, the faders and pans, and transport controls work great, but there are dozens of buttons unassigned. There is no way to control sends, or plugins, or make the buttons have different functions in different contexts.
In future videos I will explore what can be done with the X-Touch using extensions made by REAPER users, such as DrivenByMoss, and Control Surface Integrator.
