Using X32 Compact as Control Surface for DAW (with 16 faders simultaneous)?
I wonder that if I can program and reassign almost anything of the X32, if it would be possible to reassign the 8 faders for Group/Bus banks to also act as 8 additional regular (input) faders for a DAW. This way you could have control for 16 channels simultaneous (8 Input Channel banks faders + 8 Group/Bus bank faders) to control your volumes on your DAW, without need to switch banks from 1-8 to 9-16.
Why I'm asking: I currently use the well known Emagic/Mackie Logic Control with the 8 fader base unit and the 8 fader extension (Logic Control XT), having a total of 16 channels. And since the Compact also have 16 (well, 17) faders I thought, maybe it is possible to reassign the "other" 8 channels also to act as volume channel faders, without to switch banks.
This is for Studio/DAW control use only - not Live or recording, of course.
Mist, but it would have been great .....maybe something to consider in one of the next firmware release
Thanks for the reply anyway. I almost thought that it wouldn't work. But you never know until you ask and get the reply
