For your information, I just made a video to show my app capabilities: https://youtu.be/W4scTnCxQNQ
Impressive!
I see what you mean - it's actually remote controlling the app, not translating the communication protocols. Looks like it must have been a lot of work, but the result looks very slick!

there's a lot of Manufacturers that do not support updated drivers for their older Windows 7 hardware

+1

This really bit me a couple of years ago. I bought a refurbished ThinkPad that came with Windows 10, and it turned out to be just old enough that Lenovo didn't support Windows 10 on it. Most things worked just fine, but the included generic USB host drivers would intermittently lag out, which made using it for USB audio very unreliable (which is, of course, what I had bought the laptop to do).

So I owe you some money, 'cause your app is amazing and your documentation is spot on.

Only weird wrinkle I hit was that the X-Air 1.5 for PC was not on the downloads page at Behringer for the XR18, but for some reasons it was on the page for the XR16.  [Olivier's app doesn't work with earlier editor versions].  Took a little googlage to figure that one out.

And your English is better than mine.  So, no worries there.  :)

Thanks for all the work on this.  Huge time saver for me!

Thank you, thank you! This is perfect for what I need, actually does a lot MORE than what I need!
I had no luck with Sweetwater (basically said it couldn't be done), Behringer's "support" is useless, and Mixing Station wouldn't work (could be user error).
Your app worked perfectly immediately.
I owe you some $$$.

FYI I made a stand allone module to control the 4 DCA faders of the XR16/18 with 4 rotary encoders, the push on those encoders do recal snapshot 1...4 (or 5....8)

Cool idea! How does it interface with the X-Air?

Hello Russ, it has a 5 pole din so the communication is in midi, power 5 volt (usb connector)

Hi,
To improve my app "TheLink" and create the perfect compact and affordable digital mixing solution,
I'm glad to annonce a crowdfunding campaign starting today, for a new idea: TheLink-Color
For those who already played with my app, you may notice it's sometimes confusing when selecting channels on the X-Touch Mini, to quickly know which button is your guitar channel for example.
So the idea is to develop as an easy-to-do  DIY project, a midi extension to your X-Touch Mini, to display channel scribble trip colors.
More details here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/thelink-color/x/26515444#/
If you like the idea, feel free to contribute and help me to develop it!
