Posted this in Mixbus forum, but though some here may find it useful also, guessing it will all work with Ardour.
I have made a new generic midi map for the Behringer x-touch mini, that is compatable with both Mixbus and Mixbus 32c, thanks to forum member (red.plastic.studio) for his original map work which I have taken and modified substaitially.
I needed a portable cheap contoller so took a punt on the Behringer, but the x-touch / MCU protocols are not really functional in Mixbus as it’s stuck on the first bank of 8 channels, and couldn’t find a way to change banks, (my next project when I have time).
So until this can be fixed here is a very useable midi map, which goes in - program files/mixbus(32c)/ardour8/share/midi maps - open an existing midi map in notepad and copy/paste this one in. I have attached the Midi map text below as can’t post .map files, and will attach the key (as is here) in a following comment for download.
Here is the function list as I have it now, Layer A is for filters/compressor and handy functions for editing, Layer B is for EQ and more for mixing functions, this is for pots/push pots/ and buttons 1-8 (top row) Buttons 9-16 are for location and transport.
Hope this is usefull to some of you, makes a great cheap hands on contoller Smile
