Minimised interface, maximum control

The Behringer X-Touch One is a controller that supports all popular DAWs and allows complex audio software to be operated with increased speed and greater ease while ensuring a highly tactile experience for the user when creating their own sounds. This model is a good option for fans of the X-Touch models who prefer to work with a reduced number of physical controls but still require a wider range of control options than the X-Touch Mini can provide and who can also do without the X-Touch Compact's 5-pole DIN MIDI port. Despite its small footprint, the X-Touch One features a jogwheel and an LC display, and unlike many of its competitors, several of its basic functions can also be controlled using an optional footswitch if required.

Remote control by hand or foot

The Behringer X-Touch One supports Ableton Live, Cubase, Logic Pro, Studio One, Reaper, Waveform and Pro Tools DAWs as well as both HUI and Mackie Control (MC) protocols, and the controller is supplied with a set of eleven labelled DAW templates that display the button and fader assignments for the respective software. When using the MC protocol, the user can also assign MC-specific functions to the majority of the X-Touch One's 34 buttons. The touch-sensitive 100mm fader allows the DAW's master volume to be adjusted with a high level of accuracy, and the controller's rear panel houses a USB hub, a USB MIDI port, and a 6.35mm jack input for connecting a footswitch.

Compatible with all popular DAWs

Those using the Behringer X-Touch One gain fast and direct access to all of their DAW's functions, so it goes without saying that the controller provides an optimised workflow. Home studio operators will have no problem finding space for it thanks to its footprint of just 65x196x233mm, and those just putting together their first mixing station will no doubt appreciate the X-Touch One's compatibility with such a wide range of DAWs as well as its ability to grow alongside the user's needs. Artists looking for a remote DAW control for live applications will in turn be glad of the remarkably quiet motorised faders - perfect for hushed theatre settings - and the option of securing the X-Touch One in place using the Kensington Lock on the rear panel.

About Behringer

The company, which was founded in Germany by Uli Behringer and now manufactures its products in China, has been known for affordable and great-value equipment since its very first product, the Studio Exciter F. An array of mixing consoles (such as the Eurodesk MX8000), signal processors, and later sound amplification and monitoring equipment, has made it possible for countless musicians to fit out their home studios, practice rooms, and mobile PAs within budget limits that were previously unthinkable. The acquisition of other companies, including Midas, Klark Teknik, and TC Electronic, meant that new product groups were added - and also resulted in the technical expertise of these companies being incorporated into product development.

On tour: With the X-Touch One

Among its many potential live applications, the Behringer X-Touch One can be used to integrate sounds and playback tracks composed in the user's home studio into their live performances - and if they want to check their settings one last time before the show starts, the user interface's backlit controls will be invaluable once the stage lights are dimmed. Solo artists in turn can connect a footswitch to the controller with which to start and stop the playback. And to make sure that the Behringer X-Touch One makes it from one gig to the next in perfect safety, Thomann also offers an affordable custom-designed case made from water-resistant nylon.

Solid choice
A D 27.05.2020
Using this with older versions of Sonar, Cubase and Reason, and more recently Studio One, which has become my primary DAW in the studio.

Build quality is a far cry from some Behringer units of old that I've had the (mis)fortune to use. Everything is pretty solid for the most part, though they would appear to still be developing and testing their products in very bright rooms, as the LED's are dazzling. I first noticed this trend on a DDM 4000 DJ mixer I have from years ago. The old fix of a few layers of masking tape over the shuttle wheel's LED ring solves this though.

Set to Mackie mode, initially the fader section wouldn't follow the selected channel in Studio One, but a firmware update addressed this. I didn't particularly appreciate the process for this though. Behringer could make this far easier with a simple USB updater app, rather than having to mess around with MIDI-OX and Java, or y'know, even just ship the thing with the latest firmware.

Other than this, the unit has been flawless so far in the limited time that I've had it for. I will need to configure some different buttons soon, but I've yet to delve into any custom mapping yet, so cannot comment on this.

If you also need a simple space-saving unit for basic transport controls and easy punching and shuttling etc then you can't really go too far wrong with this. I mostly bought this for the transport and jog wheel and in this respect it's been great.

Only real downside in use so far is that the fader is reluctant to let me initiate adjustments which can make fine control awkward. Once it accepts your override it moves smoothly and freely, but it feels like some kind of lumpy stepping motor at first. Not a deal breaker for a unit this cheap anyway.

TLDR: Great space-saving DAW controller.

Excellent tool for video editing too!
Hans - Holding de Riddim 07.01.2021
I've been searching for a device that has a jog shuttle to control my video editing software. The X-Touch one fits my needs. I'm using it in combination with Magix Video editing software, and to be able to map the midi signals from the X-Touch one to the editing software I additionally bought Bome Midi Translator. It took me a couple of hours to create the mappings, which now include jog shuttle to scroll through the video frames, slow/fast forward/backward, chapter markers, multi-cam camera selection and play/pause/stop.

The jog shuttle is working well, but it's mechanical feeling could have been slightly better, especially when trying to rotate fast with one finger on top of the button. For fine adjustments it is totally fine.

The documentation for the programming was a bit cryptical, this has cost some extra time. There is a very bad error in the programming manual, taking hours for me to solve it: For Sysex commands it says the X-Touch has device ID 0x40. This is wrong: It is 0x41. After finding and correcting this error programming the thing was easy.

Great DAW controller! Just what I wanted!
isk 18.10.2019
Simply an amazing piece of gear!
Currently I'm mostly working in Reaper, Win 7, so my user experience comes from that environment.
Previously I had an Alphatrack which is a great controller, able to pick up plugins and giving you a chance to control nearly any parameter with the encoders (although I found it faster to do it with a mouse - so another good investment is an ergonomic mouse, vertical one or a trackball - you need to try what's working best for you), with a very informative display. The only downside were transport buttons which were so hard to push that it really started standing in the way of the workflow. Thus I started looking around for something else.
I also had an MCU and MCU Pro which are also great but I found I don't need all those faders, just basic transport functions, a couple of programmable buttons, and that's it.
And here comes Behringer with their X-touch line!
Beautiful, great feel, buttons respond just the way I like!
Due to MCU protocol there is an issue of switching between 8-channel slots. It's been already a number of months of my user experience with this controller, so I don't remember exactly which mode I'm working in (Reaper or standard MCU) but choosing tracks with your mouse reflects on the X-touch flawlessly, although you can't choose tracks using channel select buttons on the controller. I don't really need that, so that's not a problem for me.
In Reaper I programmed F1-6 buttons to basic automation and save/undo functions and thus got everything I wanted from this controller!
Thus I can highly recommend this unit! I only wish Behringer solved that tracks choosing issue to make it a flawless unit at an amazing price. Otherwise I'm completely satisfied with my purchase.
Good luck everyone!

Using it with Pro Tools
Laivheli 31.01.2022
Works quite well with PT. However, many buttons and the big wheel has no use with PT at all. You may want to consider Faderport V2...
