Yes, Iím sure, for now anyway I have the same surface to test with, xtouch mini.
My advice to change the widgets is just for this particular surface, donít take it as a general rule for another hardware. Sorry if that wasnít clear.

Why do you think my advice isnít appropriate? Itís a genuine question, no attack. Iím interested in what could cause a problem.

If you wouldn't mind, could you confirm that the rotary acceleration values are correct? (I don't have an XTouch Mini here).

Just hook up the XTouch Mini to a MIDI monitor app and look at the values sent out when a rotary is turned at different speeds, clockwise and anti-clockwise.

EDIT: Had an extra thought If you assign the LayerA button (as it's called in my .mst) to Shift and LayerB to Option in your Zones, you'll effectively give yourself access to 3 'layers' of controls

Dear friends! Thank you SO much for your help! At the moment, EVERYTHING has worked! Using the formula, I adjusted the accuracy of the encoders. Yes, you have to fit the formula into each FX parameter. At the moment buttons A B - I programmed like Shift, Alt, which gave additional zones. But that's not all! I created a tablet and phone interface in Lemur. I had to read the commands sent by the controller and recreate them in the interface. But the main task of the interface is that it has an LCD MCU (which is not in my XTouch Mini). Now both devices (old phone, Android 4.2) and tablet - have interfaces that show information about what parameters each encoder currently controls. Everything is very convenient!!!
It would, of course, be cool if in the future CSI made an auto map that files would be created automatically after I specified control parameters. I will send you a video report (sorry that in Russian).

Maybe next time lead with 'I have the same surface and have found this works better'

Incidentally, what are the shortcomings of using the standard method?

If the encoders only have six acceleration values each way it might be worth editing the .mst to reflect that. At the moment the .mst has ten values each way:

Code:
[ > 01-0a < 41-4a ]
You didn't mention what the values actually were. It would be good to know that so I can create a more accurate .mst to go in the CSI download.

Awesome work! Glad to hear you're rolling

Yes, a less cumbersome way of creating fx.zon files would be nice. Creating a template of the controller and adding the parameter indexes and names to it is usually the least painful way I created an Excel sheet c/w some VBA code to create fx.zon files for my Mackie C4 that works pretty well.
Excellent video! Yep, those unused phones and tablets make great displays for controllers that lack them

Nice video!

and yeah if you're a nerd like the rest of us (it seems like that may be the case) you'll end up in excel learning/adapting vba code to make the mapping of FX easier.
