Have a look at the MCU.rst file, then turn on Midi In Monitor on CSI, start pushing buttons, moving controls, and you should see how to make a template file for the XTouch Compact in native mode, it's just a simple text file like MCU.rst that maps the midi messages to names.

I would suggest calling it XTouchCompact.rst.

[Edit] Haha @Freex and I just cross-posted.
If we can't switch between layers on the XTouch, don't see any reason for mapping the second layer.
