Our Software is Core Audio and ASIO compliant.  If the Drivers for the X-Touch meet those requirements then Studio One should work with it easily as an audio interface.

If you're trying to use it as a controller then you'll need to bring your question to the manufacturer of the device to see what profiles they are using.

Kind regards,

The X-Touch is a DAW surface controller NOT an audio device (it does not pass any audio through it whatsoever) so the previous answer is nonsense I'm sorry. Studio One works fine with the X-Touch though it has some limitations such as the jog-wheel sensitivity is set to move one bar at a time (even if you're using time not bars as your timecode) which is way too insensitive for anything but roughly moving through your track. The scrub function doesn't work at all. Others have complained about jittery fader movement but I'd have to say I haven't seen this at all. There are a few other buttons on the X-Touch which don't seem to work as expected but I haven't yet delved into whether there's a way around that other than remapping one of the function (F1, F2 etc) buttons to the required function. Mapping plugins can be a bit tedious but that's because S1 allows you to map a virtually unlimited number of plugins to the limited number of v-pots on the X-Touch. Once set up though they should work every time you put focus on that plugin. That's actually very powerful. I have yet to get touch-sensitivity to work which still annoys me. This means when I touch a fader it doesn't "Select" that track in S1 they way it does in Logic Pro for example. I'm still hunting for an answer to that................
