Just picked up the XR-18
(exchanged the X-18)
after fiddling with the iRigMIX
HomeRUN on an 18inX18OUTtoDAW class compliant Audio Interface for the Price of Balance - with optional X-Effects.
I couldn't go back in time so I went with the X-Touch
over the BCR2000…
The X-Touch in MackieMODE is seamless to me. The Knobs, Faders, and Text Strips are perfect.
An important missing element are FX send/return channels, but then there's the software, or another piece of kit.
's Hardware and Software integration takes advantage of WiFi (onboard XR-18 -see antenna) which rivals Native Instrument's tight USB-USB-USB-USB connections. The X-Touch, a few iPads, and Reason 9
OS, are all talking to the XR-18. Nice.
Like I've mentioned earlier, if the Motor61 comes out before a $200 price drop on NI's S-61, I'm going with Behringer.
I wouldn't sleep on Behringer's Hardware. not anymore.
