Arrow X-Touch-mini with Motor-Fader simulation

The X-Touch-mini is well prepared to simuate Motor-Faders with its endless encoders and LED circles.
After many wrong attempts here a successful solution for feeding back the track volume and track mute states back to X-Touch-mini, so that changes made in reaper GUI are reflected at the controller LEDs, just like one would expect from motor faders.

What is this setup useful for?
Cheap "motor faders"-like performance for Reaper with X-Touch-mini.
Move 16 Channel Faders in Reaper via the 8 Encoders in X-Touch-mini Layer A, plus 8 Encoders in Layer B
Move 16 Channel Faders in Reaper via mouse and feed the values back into the Encoders in X-Touch-mini, represented by LED circles
Set Mute-State in 16 Channels via Controller or Reaper-GUI, state sync in both directions
Master-Volume-Fader (no LED-Feedback inbuilt, hence no "motor-fader-like" behaviour on this one fader possible.)
Transport buttons mapped.

Installation steps:
Install X-Touch-mini Editor for Windows V1.21|en)

Load provided
into the Editor and press the button "Dump A"

Load provided
into the Editor and press the button "Dump B"

Download ReaLearn 1.7.1

Install the DLL to:

Open or create in Reaper a project with 16 audio tracks
Create a 17th track via Track - Insert virtual instrument on new track ...
Choose: VSTi: ReaLearn (Helgoboss)

In the FX-Window of ReaLearn press the [+] button - Import preset library ...
choose provided
After import select the new preset from the drop-down-list

Test if Volume Encoders on X-Touch-mini controller will move the Track faders in Reaper
Test if the movement of Track faders in Reaper feed back their values to the LED circles of the X-Touch-mini Encoders
Test the Mute buttons on the controller and in Reaper, are they synced?
Test the Transport buttons to interact with reaper. (here LED transport state feedback may have still few issues)
