yah aside from the design having a heavy 'guitar center' look the single pan pot is a huge bummer. why not go all out if you're going this far? meh. waiting for someone to one-up.

Pan pots and signal indicators

I'm looking at downsizing and the XTOUCH caught my eye, and so has this unit.

I've been working for some time with sort of a hybrid controller in a sense, a Yamaha N12 mixer. I use the transport controls, faders, and PAN POTS on all the channels, although these are not integrated with the DAW. I hardly ever look at the computer monitor, which I like. I've got to have individual PAN POTS otherwise it just doesn't flow right. Hmmm, wait this doesn't have LED signal indicators, or am I not seeing something here? With my current setup when I'm mixing I'm focused on the mixer, most everything I need is right there. This is a workflow I'm use to and like.

Someone please tell me this has LED signal indicators.

Yeah... even more glad now for the X-Touch. When I'm mixing with a DAW I need gain/mute/pan for each channel... I'll do the EQ and other stuff on the computer screen. I suppose that having gain and mute may be enough for some.

i just did a song in Cubase 9.5 and when I went to mix (I use LCR) i just reached for the pan knobs per channel as needed and thought about this. I wouldn't like having to select a channel first to pan it, i was grabbing 2 at a time the whole way down 36 tracks.

so far the Xtouch has been solid. I used a presonus live mixer doing some church shows and it was a good piece of kit so I am not slagging them, but they could have just done a few more things that are basic to a controller and had a hit
