Behringer X Touch Stand

The behringer x touch is what is known as a control surface. It is used to manipulate the DAW software in real-time. It is excellent for quickly applying multiple adjustments to audio track settings. Such as volume, pan, etc. Their are also transport controls and a jog wheel to help with editing and playback.

This control surface is best viewed from above or at least at a greater angle than its design allows. It has scratch pads (which are little LED windows shown below) that relay the name of the track linked to that fader.

If you have more than eight tracks the Faders need to be swapped in batches therefore it is critical that you know which channel you are addressing whilst adjusting the settings.

I also want space under the controller to stow my keyboard. The controller takes a reasonable chunk of desk space and I don’t want to lean over too much so for this I want it as far forward as I can get it!

Printing 3D parts

I designed the parts to accept commercially available fibre glass tent poles to use as cross pieces. I already had a couple in my garage from a tent repair which were spare.

I wanted a snug fit and therefore design a tight transition fit for the holes. In engineering their are three types of holes for this type of fit. Clearance, interference and transition. I could have made the parts out of wood but I liked the looks of the 3D printed part and also it allows me to make it available as four separate 3D STL files for people who want to make their own – using a 3D printer.

You will also need 11mm diameter tent poles to complete the model. The four parts will need printing by you or someone with a 3D printer! You will also need fasteners or glue to complete the stand.

I made the design suitable for smaller printers so the sides are made in two halves which can be either glued together or screwed together with small nuts and bolts.

I have been using it for several months and I am really pleased with the results.
