Anyone here owning an X-Touch or X-Touch compact?
I’m starting with Renoise, and wish to make my X-Touch work with it. There is already support for (most of the) MCU protocol in Duplex, but it’s really not to my taste. Also, it seems the full potential of the X-Touch (like color scribble strips) can only be unlocked when using their proprietary Xctl protocol. So, I’m planning on working to implement Xctl in Renoise. It seems fairly simple, except I’m discovering the Renoise API and haven’t used Lua in, hm, over a decade (that’s not the issue I’ll get into it fast enough).
I’ll be basing my implementation on this doc:http://www.budgetfeatures.com/XctlDOC/Xctl%20Protocol%20for%20X-Touch%20V1.0.pdf
After a few quick experiments in the terminal, I could configure a scribble strip properly, so I trust this doc is solid.
Also, I’m planning to tailor the overlay to my very needs, so if anyone is interested, let’s discuss what overlay(s) to create!
Apart from that, I’m not sure whether it’s better to make a new device for Duplex or code it from scratch. It seems Duplex doesn’t handle screens or VU leds yet? Also I couldn’t find a proper tutorial to create a new Duplex device, nor could I find a proper starting point in the Duplex docs (Maybe it’s already there, I can easily overlook things when I’m browsing, especially the obvious. It happens.)
