There's going to be a few monkeys running loose. If there were a X-Touch Midi (as in Medium, not MIDI), I'd be all over it. Then again, it'd probably cost what the Loupedeck does.
With the ever-growing arthritis in my hands, I'm pretty much going to have to find an option other than a trackpad and mouse for pushing little sliders around so I'm giving this a serious whirl.
Can't vouch for it, but this Akai
has 24 knobs and 8 faders on a 10x8 footprint at $100 (with Prime shipping). Should be plenty of controls.
For those just beginning and wanting to try it out the $40 Samson might be a good place to start.
Anyone knows if two controllers can be used simultaneously? I.e. get one Xtouch Mini and then add a second if more controls are needed?
