Windows 10 is still free. No need to pay unless you need to change the desktop or a few other typically unimportant settings.

interesting.  I've got a windows 7 machine that was becoming useless because i didn't have windows 10, but i didn't want to spend any money on it.

definitely looking into this.

No worries.
I took a look at that link, since that sort of automation stuff interests me, even though I'm not really in the Behringer world. I was curious why it was "Windows Only", especially since it's not even a GUI type application.
AutoIt is a scripting language for Windows (I used it a lot for automating things on Windows back in the day). Not normally used for applications; complex automation that can't be done with batch files, yes, but not normally stand-alone programs. It'd likely be pretty clunky to do a communication app, but obviously this person was able to pull it off!
If it were done in another language, potentially a version that works cross-platform wouldn't be hard to make.

Hi!
I'm the guy who did this app! I agree AutoIt was quite a strange choice of language to write this app at the beginning. But I have to say I discovered by doing it a more powerfull language I though it was! AutoIt 3 is definitely more than just a scripting language.
For the story: I'm a musician/actor/maker with an engineering degree in electronic. I started to write this app for my own needs. I have a Midas MR18. I'm on windows. And I was searching for a way to control my MR18 over the network using a simple midi controller. And I though would be better to have a good interaction with M-AIR Edit acting as the mixer display. AutoIt has been my choice to be able to simulate mouse clicks in the app. And I discovered it was possible to do more! To almost hack M-AIR Edit, and then add a kind of "midi remote control capabilities" to M-AIR Edit. And very easy to write!
AutoIt is not cross platform, windows only. So that's why my app is windows only (which is not a problem for me! ;-)
I did whith what I knew.
I don't know if there's an equivalent on MacOS...
Anyway, at the end, I'm very satisfied with what I done! Matching all my needs: at home in my homestudio, on stage when I'm performing and managing the sound at the same time, and also when I have to manage the sound for small events.

Thank you for that info, Shuptuu.

Just a word to the wise - you'll need to change your username to your real name otherwise this thread will get locked. Please do that, as I'd love to hear more from you!

It all makes sense now that you had to "remote control" the editor to make this work. I didn't realize that was what you had to do. For that AutoIt is great (possibly one of the best). If that's the only way for this app to work, then yes, converting to MacOS would be pretty challenging.

Well, damn! It seems Mixing Station will only work with Win 10. Both of my laptops have Win 7.

I just installed and ran it on a Win7 machine.

Thanks, Dan. I was going to try it tonight, so hopefully I will also have success.

So no motorized faders then? ;-)

I never said it had literal motorized faders. The function of motorized faders is a tactile control that visually indicates its position, even if the value is changed by something else. It has that.

For your information, I just made a video to show my app capabilities: https://youtu.be/W4scTnCxQNQ

Just as a side note on installing Windows 10 on a Windows 7 machine.
 there's a lot of Manufacturers that do not support updated drivers for their older Windows 7 hardware
