Post by Simonemolla » Sat Nov 02, 2019 3:32 am

I ‘m trying to use my X touch with auria pro and it seems to work pretty good.
But i would like to know if i did every thing correctly in the midi section, or if i can improve the settings.

Can you post a screenshot of your MIDI settings in Auria?

Your settings are correct. The X Touch is an MCU controller. HUI is only available on the X-Touch but not the X-Touch compact or the X-Touch mini. HUI is really only meant for use with Pro Tools and not any other software as MCU is more integrated with the software and offers more control over the software. There is no learn feature in Auria’s software for MCU controllers. The MCU protocol inside Auria is only partially implemented. That is you dont get the same control of Auria as you would in Logic or Cubase on a desktop. So here is the list of all that you can control in Auria with an MCU controller. Nothing More not even with a dedicated Mackie MCU Pro controller. Auria does not recognize more channel extender units just one main controller.

1. Bank by channel or in banks of 8 up to 74 tracks. ( will not recognize tracks beyond trk 74.)
2. Fader control and automation of the fader ( the only thing you can automate is the Channel Faders and Master Fader.)
3. Pan control
4. Mute,Solo,Record engage/disengage for channels and main record.
5. Play,Stop,FF,RW, Return to Zero (double tap RW button)
6. Call up FX plugins inserted into the 4 FX plugin slots and control of those plugins but only the plugins available for Auria.
( No AuV3 or Inter App plugins can be called up or controlled via the X-Touch.) No automation of Auria’s plugins
7. Undo
8. Switch between Mixer view and Edit lane view.
9. Control of all 6 Aux channels on the channel strips not the Master channel.
( Cannot view or control plugins on the Master strip.)
10. Can view track name and track VU meter on all 8 fader channels at once.

( No vertical track select. No zoom. No scrub. No jog wheel control. )


Hope that helps. Cheers.

Unfortunately I don’t think there will be anymore updates to the MCU features in Auria any time soon. The good thing is that Auria still has more software control than any other iOS Daw. Cheers and thanks for using AuriaPro.

The problem is that the iPad is a touch device unlike a desktop. MCU control allows for the Daw software to recognize that you touched the pan control on the MCU controller and it’s position like the faders do in Auria. In other words the MCU controller is touch response sensitive. This feature is what allows the Daw to know at what position the pan control is at on the MCU controller when you touch it. This conflicts with the iPad touch screen commands. I believe Rim worked hard to get the faders to automate and with perfect touch recognition. So I just use the iPad touch screen or the automation lanes to automate everything else in AuriaPro like you do. I love MCU control in Auria because of mixing 8 channels at once, transport control, plugin control, ect. Which all results in less smear on my iPad screen and tapping is boring to me. Do you use a Mackie? Presonus? Berhinnger? Cheers.
