NAMM 2015: New Universal Control Surfaces From Behringer
X-TOUCH Series DAW Controllers debuts 22/01/15
Behringer has introduced X-TOUCH; a trio of universal control surfaces that they say put the power of production software at the user's fingertips. Consisting of the full size X-TOUCH Universal Control Surface, the smaller COMPACT and the ultra-portable MINI, X-TOUCH configurable controllers feature an assortment of high-quality touch-sensitive motorized faders, LCD scribble strips, rotary controls with LED-collars – and illuminated buttons for on-the-fly parameter adjustments.
All three models support Mackie Control, while the X-TOUCH adds further support for HUI. Built-in Ethernet, USB and MIDI interfaces provide direct access to PC or Mac computers, as well as MIDI devices and future X32 and X AIR remote control. Behringer believes that X-Touch Series controllers offer a superior user experience to "the mouse" every time, especially when it comes to professional DAW applications.
Pricing and Availability: The X-TOUCH, X-TOUCH COMPACT and X-TOUCH MINI are available at a suggested U.S. MAP of $599.99, $399.99 and $99.99, respectively
