There are others that send relative data: 4 to the left, 12 to the
right or so. For example the Pocket Dial supports this
increment/decrement mode depending on the setup:

I *heard* that the Behringer is "broken" in this regard in that it
just stops to send data when one end is reached (that is, it stays at
0 or 127 without wrapping around at all). I'd be glad to hear if this
is true or not, as that would make the rotary encoders useless to me.
