Here's an MCU-compatible *simple* mixer Rack


After I sent my previous mixer Rack out into the world the feedback I got was ‘very nice, but too complex for us’!

So I decided to rustle up a simple 8-in/1-out stereo mixer and this time I’ve made it MCU-compatible, so it should work with any Mackie-style controller, including the Behringer X-Touch, with which I tested it. Channel levels, solo and mute should all work.

Make sure the Rack has a MIDI input from your MCU controller and a MIDI output back to your controller and it should work as expected.

I wanted to activate the level meters on my X-Touch, but that’s not possible at the moment - I’ll raise another topic to discuss this.

Please let me know if you find it useful.


…and the mixer Rack now returns audio levels to the MCU device, so you can see those pretty meter LEDs bouncing up and down! It will also populate the scribble strip when loaded.

I’m using this mixer Rack with a Behringer X-Touch. I can now control all aspects of the mixer from the X-Touch, and I have meters, moving faders and scribble strip all under Cantabile’s control. It works really well!
