Geoff, what say you? Paging Mr. Waddington! Can you give us a brief overview of your findings and in summation of what exactly is going on over there in that thread that lives on for all eternity that you started over 2 years ago.

I am time constrained and would prefer to not have to read a very large novel or even encyclopedia Wikipedia.
AFAIK, the X-Touch is 14 bit protocol, just like any other MCU clone.

The actual physical limitation is the motorized fader -- usually about 10 bit -- 1024 steps.

The X-Touch Compact uses 7 bit protocol -- 128 steps.
