The X-touch Compact has 3 ways to control the LED rings
1) Local (as you move the knob)
2) Remote 1 (same CC and channel from the host)
3) Remote 2 (same CC and but on the global channel from the host)
I suggest you use remote 2 mode for remote control. I don\'t think you can override local control so you will always need to ensure the host (or MT Pro) is sending remote feedback.
Also, I noticed that the Encoders have 3 relative modes in addition to absolute mode for Layer A and B.
Relative 1 - 01/7F - With increment
Relative 2 - 3f/41 - With increment
Relative 3 - 01/41 - (V-Pot Mode) with increment
By increment I mean for relative 1 you might get 01, 02, 03 for positive and 7F,7E,7D for negative movements.
I would recomment you
1) Put the encoders into relative 3 mode
2) Use remote feedback 2 method for updating the encoders.
The encoder display type can be changed by sending on the Global channel value 0-4 with the same encoder number.
0-Single, 1=Pan, 2=Fan,3=Spread,4=Trim
If you add 16 (decimal) to the encoder number you can change the display, again using the Global channel
0=Off, 1-13 How many LED\'s on (solid), 14-26, how many LED\'s on (blink), 27 all LED\'s on, 28 all LEDs blinking.
The global channel can be set with the Behringer X-touch editor. Then you can use MT Pro to translate from how RME sends back information to customize what type and value your LED rings will display.
This information was all in the X-Touch Compact Quick Start Guide, which I had to find outside of Behringer as apparently, they no longer have it published on their site.
