Of course in MC mode, the protocol is defined to be 14 bits, but I tested that with the "Compact" the lower bits are not used (details see appropriate message in the other thread). As the other Behringer products supposedly use the same hardware for the faders (-> https://www.thomann.de/de/behringer_x32_motor_fader.htm: just $ 16 a piece ! ), it might be that these are limited to 7 bits. But maybe just the "Compact" firmware is crappy. That is why a decent research is necessary.
