Adobe Premiere CC

Behringer X-Touch Mini

I want to adjust the zoom in out with the knob.

I also want to adjust the main volume with the fader button.

But I do not know how. Can I get a sample file?

Although the X-touch MINI does indeed have a “Mackie MCU” mode, the makers decided not to use the knobs as Mackie Faders and instead use them as VPOTS. This means that it would probably be best to use Non-Mackie Mode and convert CC’s to Mackie MCU using Bome MIDI Translator Pro.

For faders, I suggest you review the following tutorial. There should be a link to the project file I used when creating it.

As far a zoom in and out, this would need to be handled a bit differently. You will need to convert CC to keystroke shortcuts that Premier uses. I don’t remember which keystrokes it uses for Zoom-in and Zoom out so I’m going to point you to a few  tutorials that should help you.

This first tutorial shows you how to convert a MIDI message to a keystroke. Note that for this to work, Adobe Premier must be the active focused application.

I would also recommend if you can program your knobs to send out endless MIDI messages (using Behringer’s editor for the X-touch MINI), it would make better sense. That way any right movement could be translated to a Zoom-In keystroke and any left movement to a Zoom-Out keystroke.  I’m pretty sure the device can be programmed this way but if it cannot, you should review the tutorial about converting a relative encoder to an absolute encoder.

Although the above doesn’t convert absolute encoder to relative keystroke, it should get you closer to what you want.

I’m also attaching a file that converts absolute encoder to keystroke  output. I built it for Capture One but if you change the outgoing keystroke to what Premier needs, it should work.

If you don’t want to program all of this yourself, I’m available for providing a solution as part of my fee based services. Just send me an email to get started.


Hopefully these examples will help.
