Todd starts with the Device Status Section, and then spends the next 3 videos discussing the Mixer Section, its Input and Output channels, and How to Set Up Multiple Mixes.

Next, Todd explores the Routing Section, and How it Interacts with the Mixer. From there, you'll learn how to use the Monitor Section to control Monitoring Levels and Monitor Mixes. Todd now shows you How to Set Up MixControl with various DAWs and Recording Applications, and finally, explains How to Save and Load Settings.
