4. From the menu in the bottom-right corner of the welcome screen, select ProjectMix Control and click Install. 5. When installation is complete, you can launch the application by locating it in your Applications folder and double-clicking its icon.
Using ProjectMix Control
Downloading Current Settings
When ProjectMix Control rst starts, it will check to see that the ProjectMix I/O is connected to your computer. Once it establishes a connection, a dialog box will appear conrming connection. It will also ask you if youd like to download the current MIDI settings of the ProjectMix I/O into the application. Click OK and the settings will be loaded into the application.
The ProjectMix Control application is a simple window containing a graphic representation of the knobs, buttons, and faders on the ProjectMix I/O.
As you move your mouse over these controls, a balloon will appear showing you the current values assigned to the control.
Youll nd that every control on the ProjectMix I/O has MIDI parameters assigned to it except for the MIDI button. This is because the MIDI button is used to enter and exit the ProjectMix I/O MIDI mode.
Changing MIDI Assignments
To change the assignments to a control, simply click on it with your mouse. A small dialog box will appear containing the relevant parameters for the control.
Simply type in your desired values and press OK. This will lock in your new settings for the control. Continue clicking on controls and reprogramming them until youve made all the necessary changes.
While performing the reprogramming detailed above, your settings are being saved on your computer only. Once you have nished editing the controls, you will need to upload these new settings to the ProjectMix I/O in order for them to take effect. Click on the OPTIONS menu in the upper-left corner of the screen. Click on the rst option, Send Current Conguration to Control Surface, to begin the upload.
Once the upload completes, your changes will now be available when you engage MIDI mode on the ProjectMix I/O.
The ProjectMix I/O contains a set of processors that handle all the tasks necessary to make the unit work. Some processors handle the audio functions of the ProjectMix I/O; others handle the control surface. These processors are running programs that can be updated, just like updating software on your computer. These programs, called rmware, will be updated from time to time in order to enhance the functionality of the ProjectMix I/O. The latest rmware versions for both the audio interface and control surface are included in every driver package (including those on the CDROM) that are available on the M-Audio Web site (www.m-audio.com). In order to have the most recent rmware, youll need to install the most recent driver package. The audio interface rmware is uploaded every time you start your computer. The control surface rmware, however, must be updated using the Firmware Updater supplied with ProjectMix Control. Before you update the control surface rmware, take a moment to check whether or not you actually need an update. It is quite possible that improvements may be made to the audio driver while the control surface rmware stays the same. In other words, just because theres a new driver available doesnt mean theres a new control surface rmware available, too. To see your current control surface rmware version, simply turn off the ProjectMix I/O and turn it back on. The version will be displayed on the LCD screen during initialization. Write this number down for reference. Youll start the control surface rmware updater by clicking OPTIONS in the upper-left corner of the ProjectMix Control window. Then click on Update Firmware within the pop-up menu.
Once you select Update Firmware, the Firmware Updater will launch.
Before you click Update, take a look at the version number displayed in the title bar. If this number matches the ProjectMix I/Os rmware number that you wrote down above, then you do not need to run the Updater. If your ProjectMix I/O has an older version than the number shown in the title bar, then you can proceed with the update. To initiate the update, click the Update button and follow the on-screen directions. Once the rmware upload begins, a bar will slowly ll from the left to right indicating the progress of the upload. Once the upload is complete, turn the ProjectMix I/O off, then back on. During initialization, conrm that the new rmware version is shown in the LCD screen.

What's in the Box
Before you begin setting up your ProjectMix I/O, please check that the following equipment was included in your box:
< M-Audio ProjectMix I/O < 6-Pin-to-6-Pin FireWire Cable < 6-Pin-to-4-Pin FireWire Cable < External Power Supply < M-Audio FireWire Series CD-ROM (includes drivers, documentation, and control panel application) < Printed Quick Start Guide
About ProjectMix I/O
The ProjectMix I/O features a professional quality FireWire audio interface which is capable of 16 simultaneous inputs and 12 simultaneous outputs. It offers eight mic inputs with high-quality preamps and phantom power, eight line inputs, four line outputs, eight channels of ADAT lightpipe I/O, and coaxial S/PDIF I/O. In addition to professional features like word clock I/O, the ProjectMix I/O gives you a conveniently located front-panel instrument input, two front-panel headphone outputs, and footswitch control. A single IEEE 1394 cable connects the ProjectMix I/O to your computers FireWire port. (If your computer is not equipped with a native FireWire port, you may purchase a FireWire PCI card at any computer electronics retailer.)*
*NOTE: Please check the Product Support page at www.m-audio.com for a list of compatible 1394A PCI and PCMCIA adapters.
The ProjectMix I/O is also a full-featured control surface, with touch-sensitive motorized faders, rotary encoder knobs, and dedicated mute, solo, select and record switches, as well as banking switches to address all channels of your DAW software. It features a full transport control section, including jog/scrub wheel, loop and locate buttons, and a full complement of multi-function soft buttons dedicated to work with your specic audio application. The easy-to-use software control panel of the ProjectMix I/O provides you with powerful routing and mixing control. Using the panel you can route any analog or digital input to any output, you can select digital input and output types, create special headphone mixes and select functions for the encoder knobs to control a number of other features.
IMPORTANT: We've enclosed two high-quality FireWire cables with your Project I/O a six-pin-tosix-pin cable and a six-pin-to-four-pin cable. Determine whether your computer is equipped with a six-pin or four-pin interface and choose the appropriate cable for connecting ProjectMix I/O to your computer. We strongly suggest you use one of the enclosed cables (or one of equal quality) for optimum audio performance. Also note that the ProjectMix I/O requires the included external power adapter; it will not function using only FireWire bus power. NOTE: Some computer manufacturers may use a different nomenclature to refer to their FireWire connections, such as Sony's "Link," or simply "1394."
NOTE: The MIC/LINE switch on input 1 must be in the LINE (down) position for the front-panel instrument input to work. If the MIC/LINE switch is in the up position, input 1 will receive signal from the XLR input on the back of the ProjectMix I/O, regardless of the setting of the INST switch.
2. Input Gain Control Knobs (GAIN): The GAIN control knobs are analog level controls for the input level of the mic (XLR) and line inputs 1 8. It's important to note that the best signal-to-noise ratios are achieved by maximizing the level of analog inputs at the A/D converters. For best results, levels should be adjusted while paying close attention to not only to your audio software's meters, but also to the input channels' SIGNAL and CLIP LEDs (4,5). 3. Mic/Line Selector Switches (MIC/LINE): Each of the eight analog inputs has its own dedicated MIC/LINE switch which selects between the XLR (mic level) input (42) or the line-level input (53). When the MIC/LINE switch is in the out position, the XLR input (42) is enabled and in the down position, the line-level input (53) is enabled. 4. Clip LEDs (CLIP): When a channel's input signal exceeds its headroom, the CLIP LED will light red. When this happens, lower the input level using the GAIN knob until it stays off. 5. Signal LEDs (SIGNAL): The green SIGNAL LEDs light to indicate the presence of an audio signal on the input.
NOTE: For best results, turn up the input level with the GAIN knob as high as you can without making the CLIP LED light up. If the CLIP LED lights up, lower the gain until it stays off.
6. Phantom Power Switch (PHANTOM POWER): When the PHANTOM POWER switch is in the down position, its red LED lights up indicating that phantom power is now being applied to all of the XLR inputs. This allows you to power condenser microphones connected to the ProjectMix I/O XLR inputs. Press the switch to the up position to turn phantom power off. 7. LCD Display: The two-line backlit LCD display shows the parameter values as you adjust them and also provides feedback about channel selections, operating modes, and more. 8. Channel Rotary Encoder Knobs (ASSIGNABLE ENCODERS): The eight rotary encoder knobs (35 through 44) affect the selected parameter in the DAW software. Typically, they will be used to adjust pan position, aux send levels, and EQ, though they can also be used to adjust specic parameters within plug-ins and virtual instruments. Any parameter adjustments made with these encoder knobs will be displayed directly above them in the LCD display. 9. Record Enable Buttons (REC): The REC buttons toggle the recording state of the associated channel. The switch will light red when the channel is armed. 10. Select Buttons (SEL): The SEL buttons activate the associated channels in the DAW software in order to perform a specic operation. (For example, when adjusting EQ with the ASSIGNABLE ENCODERS, the SEL switch will be used to choose the channel you want to adjust.) When a channel is selected, the associated SEL switch's yellow LED will light. 11. Solo Buttons (SOLO): SOLO buttons toggle each channel's solo status on and off. When a channel's SOLO button is selected, its green LED lights and all of the other channels in the DAW application are muted. While the specic behavior of the SOLO buttons is determined by the DAW software you are using, you can typically solo multiple channels by pressing SOLO buttons on additional channels. 12. Mute Buttons (MUTE): The MUTE buttons toggle each channel's mute status on and off. The selected MUTE button's red LED will light. 13. Channel Faders: The eight 100mm touch-sensitive motorized faders are typically used for controlling the volumes of tracks within your DAW software. They can also be used to adjust other settings by using the FLIP switch (35). Because these faders are motorized, they will automatically move to reect the current level of the selected channels in your DAW application (corresponding to the channels represented by the position of the BANK switches (31 and 32)). Any automation recorded in a project will be reected by the fader positions. Furthermore, touch-sensitivity allows you to override automation the moment you touch a fader. 14. Master Fader: This controls your DAW software's master channel fader and operates identical to the channel faders (13). 15. Window Button (WINDOW): This button is typically mapped to open and close specic windows in the DAW application. Refer to the Application Notes section describing your audio software for details. 16. Arrow Buttons (ARROW t, p, u, q): The ARROW buttons are typically used to navigate through the Graphical User Interface (GUI) of the DAW application. Refer to the Application Notes section describing your audio software for details. 17. Zoom Button (ZOOM): The ZOOM button is typically used in conjunction with the ARROW buttons (16) to zoom in and out within windows in the DAW application. Refer to the Application Notes section describing your audio software for details.
NOTE: Holding down one of the AUX buttons while powering up the ProjectMix I/O will select from a variety of DAW operation modes. Refer to the Application Notes section describing your audio software for details.
45. Headphone Level Knobs: The two headphone level knobs regulate the output level (volume) of the two independent headphone mixes (selected by the headphone A/B button (46)). The headphone mixes themselves are set within the Control Panel software. See the Control Panel section for more information. 46. Headphone Mix Select Switch (A/B): The A/B switch selects between the two separate headphone mixes, as set within the Control Panel software. See the Control Panel section for more information. 47. Level Knob (LEVEL): The LEVEL knob controls the level of the software return, input, output, or aux send, as selected in the Control Panel software. See the Control Panel section for more information. 48. MIDI Channel Display: This two-digit LED display shows different information depaending on which DAW you are using. For example, the abbreviated mode type is displayed when using Logic. 49. MIDI Activity Indicators (MIDI IN, OUT): These indicator LEDs light when MIDI data is seen at the ProjectMix I/O rear-panel MIDI input or MIDI output. 50. Front-Panel Instrument Input: Connect an instrument-level input (guitar, bass, etc.) to this jack. This jack shares its input with Line input 1, and is only active when the INST switch (1) is in the down position. The Gain 1 (2) control can be used to adjust the recording level of the instrument.
51. Headphone Outputs: These jacks are stereo headphone outputs for connection of standard TRS headphone plugs. These are separate outputs whose levels are controlled by the two headphone level knobs (45). 52. Mic Inputs (MIC INPUTS): Balanced XLR inputs at +4dBu featuring high-quality mic preamps. These inputs are wired in parallel with their associated Line Inputs, and selected with the channel Mic/Line switches (3). To use the XLR jack as the input source for a channel, the corresponding MIC/LINE switch will need to be in the up position.
53. Line Inputs (LINE INPUTS): Balanced line-level (+4 dBu) 14" analog inputs. These inputs are wired in parallel with their associated MIC INPUTS, and selected with the channel MIC/LINE switches (3). To use the Line Input jack as the input source for a channel, the corresponding MIC/LINE switch (3) must be in the down position. 54. Line Outputs (LINE OUT 1 4): Balanced +4dBu line-level outputs on 14" jacks. Two independent output mixes may be congured using Outputs 1 and 2, or Outputs 3 and 4, using the Control Panel for routing. See the Control Panel section for more information. 55. Word Clock In and Out (WORD CLOCK IN, OUT): Coaxial BNC connectors for input of external word clock signal from another device (input), or for output of the ProjectMix I/O word clock signal to another device (output). 56. S/PDIF In and Out (S-PDIF IN, OUT): S/PDIF coaxial digital input and also on RCA connectors. 57. ADAT In and Out (ADAT IN / OUT): Fiber-optic input and output to accommodate eight-channel ADAT digital lightpipe format. 58. Kensington Lock Port: This connector is compatible with Kensington security cables to protect your device from theft. 59. FireWire Input: FireWire (IEEE 1394) input for connecting the ProjectMix I/O to your computer. 60. Power Input: Connect the 12VDC power supply to this jack. 61. Foot Switch Input (FOOT SWITCH): Accommodates a standard momentary contact-closure footswitch on 14" connector. This input automatically detects the polarity of a connected footswitch upon power-up. 62. MIDI In and Out (MIDI IN / OUT): MIDI input and output on standard 5-pin DIN connectors.
Mini-Meters (view) Meters view is a condensed view of the input and output volume meters, which can be left open while you are using your audio applications (the mini-meters window will oat above any other window on your screen). This provides a way for you to monitor the input levels of your recordings. The mini-meters may be displayed in horizontal and vertical orientation. Settings Options (settings)
The following settings options are available:
< save: Saves the current routing scheme into your computer's memory. < load: Loads a previously saved routing scheme. < reset: Resets all settings to their default values. < Delete: Deletes the current preset.
Level Controller Options (level controller)
The following radio buttons determine the function of the level knob on the ProjectMix I/O control surface:
< sw return bus: The level knob controls the level of the sw return bus, comprising the audio streams returning from your audio
< output bus: The level knob controls the level of the output bus. This is the most common setting. < input bus: The level knob controls the level of the input bus, comprising the audio streams of the analog and digital inputs, as selected
in the previous pages.
< aux send: The level knob controls the level of the aux send bus.
Main Output Mute and Dim (main output)
< Clicking the mute button will completely mute the ProjectMix I/O outputs. < Clicking the dim button will lower the ProjectMix I/O output volume by 20dB. This is useful for answering phone calls or having a short
conversation, allowing you to quickly bring the volume back to its previous level.
The about page is for information purposes only. It shows the current versions of the driver being used, the control panel, as well as the rmware version within the ProjectMix I/O. If you are not sure whether you have the newest driver for your ProjectMix I/O, you can visit the M-Audio website (www.m-audio.com) and compare the version of the driver listed there to the version shown on this tab.
The Control Surface
While the ProjectMix I/O looks and functions much the same as a typical mixing console, it is important to note that it is most denitely not a mixing console. Although it is equipped with audio inputs and outputs, it will not handle any audio unless it is connected to a host computer. In addition, its control surface does not perform any actual mixing functions itself; rather, it simply communicates commands to your DAW software (and receives communication back from the software as well). All functions mixing, automation, EQ, effects, etc. are performed within your DAW software. This is an important concept to understand, because it determines a lot about the way the ProjectMix I/O will function in your studio. Since every DAW application's function and feature set is a bit different, the ProjectMix I/O will operate differently depending on what program it is interfacing with. Many functions will translate universally across all DAW programs such as the channel faders, but many others will not. For example, in some programs (e.g., Pro Tools, Cubase, etc.) the REW and FF transport buttons allow you to rewind or fast-forward through your project. Some other programs do not support the fast-forward and rewind commands; therefore these buttons will not operate in those programs. Refer to the Application Notes section describing your audio software for details.
Set Up Button (SET UP) Press the SET UP button to access utility functions of the ProjectMix I/O like LCD Contrast. The SET UP button will light solid red. After pressing SET UP, press the SEL key below the function you wish to edit on the LCD, then follow the instructions on the LCD to access parameters and edit values.
Hold down the SET UP key for one second and the key will blink red. This will turn off the motorized faders on the ProjectMix I/O. Hold down the SET UP key again for one second to turn the motorized faders back on.
MIDI Button (MIDI) The MIDI button activates MIDI mode on the ProjectMix I/O and opens the built in MIDI application (see the section of this manual on MIDI Application). Pressing the MIDI button again puts the ProjectMix I/O back in to DAW Mode.
This application allows you to assign specic MIDI values to buttons and faders on the ProjectMix I/O. This allows you to control stand-alone software applications as well as external MIDI devices from the ProjectMix I/O control surface. You will be able to toggle the ProjectMix I/O between MIDI mode and your selected DAW mode by simply pressing the MIDI button.
Lock Button (LOCK) The LOCK button disengages the transport buttons (RWD, FF, STOP, PLAY and REC). It does not affect the jog wheel. When LOCK is on, the key will light solid red. If you hold down the LOCK key for one second, the light will blink red and you will be in Fast Encoder mode. This allows you to change parameter values very quickly with the encoders. Hold down the key again for one second to exit this mode and the light will go out. Encoders will now adjust parameter values at normal speed. The transports cannot be locked when in Fast Encoder mode. Loop Button (LOOP) Activates and deactivates Loop mode. Nudge Buttons (t NUDGE u) The NUDGE (t / u) buttons nudge the selected audio region by pre-selected increments. This is useful for aligning regions and correcting small timing issues. Locate Buttons (t LOCATE u) The LOCATE (t / u) buttons move the transport to the previous or next assigned marker. Hold down the t key for one second to go to the start of the session. Hold down the u key for one second to go to the end of the session.Set Button (SET)
Min/Sec: Moves in one-second increments.
< Feet Frames: Moves in one-foot increments.
To enter Cubase mode: Hold down the AUX 2 button while powering on the unit. The mode will be conrmed in the LCD display when the ProjectMix I/O has initialized. Cubase mode will also work with Steinberg's Nuendo software. PC Setup: With the ProjectMix I/O in Cubase mode, launch the application and choose Device Setup from the Device menu. Next, click on the Add/Remove tab and a list of products will appear. Click on Mackie Control, then click Add. Click on the Setup tab and click Mackie Control in the left column. Choose Control for both the input and output MIDI ports. Then select VST Audio Bay and set the Master ASIO Driver to ProjectMix Multichannel, then click Apply. You can then close the Device Setup window and the ProjectMix I/O will now control Cubase. Mac Setup: With the Project Mix I/O in Cubase mode, launch the application and choose Device Setup from the Device menu. Select the + sign in the upper left corner of the Device Setup window. Click on Mackie Control to display the Controller Setup window. Choose Control for both the input and output MIDI ports. Then select VST Audio Bay and set the Master ASIO Driver to ProjectMix Multichannel, then click Apply. You can then close the Device Setup window and the Project Mix I/O will now control Cubase.
NOTE: Many of Cubase's features consist of multiple pages of editing parameters. To move between multiple pages, hold the ALT button and press the tBANK or BANKu button. (In most cases of multiple-page parameter controls specic to Cubase, we have attempted to document the full range of editing parameters. (For example, the FX send and EQ parameters). However, many VST instruments and plug-ins can contain in excess of 50 pages of parameters; this, combined with the sheer number of plug-ins and VST instruments available, makes it nearly impossible to document them all. We have therefore focused this documentation on those control aspects specic to the program itself. We have not documented the functions that are obvious and covered elsewhere in this manual, such as channel faders, MUTE, SOLO, SEL, REC and transport buttons.) To change between pages press the ALT+tBANK or ALT+ BANKucombination.

Aux 5 Button (AUX 5): Write key This is a global Write Automation key. Pan Buttons (PAN) Pressing the PAN button toggles between Pan/Surround Multi Channel and Pan/Surround Channel Strip views.
Channel Strip view for pan - Moves the pan control for the selected channel to encoder knob 1. Multi Channel view for pan - Allows each encoder knob to be the pan control for its associated channel. Channel Strip view for surround - Shows each surround parameter for the selected channel:
< Angle - This allows your encoder knob to pan the cursor around in a 360 degree circle. < Diversity - This allows the encoder knob to move the cursor toward and away from the absolute center of the room. < LFE - This encoder knob determines how much signal from this channel is sent to the LFE (Low Frequency Effect) output. < Mode - This allows you to select a different surround mode (5.1, 7.1, etc.) After selecting a different surround mode, hold down
the SEL button under the fourth encoder for one second to activate. Logic will then reect changes in the channel strip.
< X Position - Moves the cursor left and right. < Y Position - Moves the cursor up and down.
Multi Channel view for surround - Shows only the angle control for each surround assigned channel. This allows you to easily pan a channel in 360 degrees.

Using MIDI Mode
The ProjectMix Control Application allows you to congure the ProjectMix I/O control surface to communicate standard MIDI messages instead of the default Mackie Control protocol. This lets you to use the ProjectMix I/O with almost any audio application that supports standard MIDI protocol (nearly every audio application supports MIDI control in some way). In MIDI mode, you can assign MIDI Continuous Controllers to the knobs, faders, and jog wheel as well as assign MIDI Note events to nearly all of the buttons. Furthermore, the lights behind the buttons can be controlled by MIDI events, thus allowing the audio application to create a two-way relationship with the ProjectMix I/O if it is within the audio applications capabilities. Technically speaking, MIDI is a system in which controls on the ProjectMix I/O are assigned MIDI control numbers, thereby allowing them to send specic messages to specic receivers when you adjust the knobs, faders and buttons on the unit. Each knob, fader and button on the ProjectMix I/O can be assigned a different number so the controller youre moving sends its messages to the exact device you want to receive them. The range of numbers available in the MIDI system, run from 0-127. This may seem like a lot of different assignment possibilities, but by todays standards, with plug-ins and virtual synthesizers having countless parameters to control, one could run out of assignment numbers rather quickly. To expand the choices, MIDI offers 16 separate channels, each with two groups of 128 number assignments. The two groups are Notes (used for buttons on the ProjectMix I/O) and Continuous Controllers (abbreviated CC which is used for the knobs, faders, and the jog wheel). Therefore, every button, knob, and fader on the ProjectMix I/O (or any MIDI device) has two numerical assignments: a channel number, from 1 to 16, and a parameter number, which is either a Note or CC from 0 to 127. Because of this, you need to set two values for each of the controls on the ProjectMix I/O when youd like to them to control something with MIDI. The ProjectMix I/O Control Application makes this very simple by using a point-and-click interface and familiar dialog boxes.
Do I Need To Change the MIDI Settings?
The ProjectMix I/O will always operate parameters on a receiving device when the MIDI settings of a controller on the ProjectMix I/O (knob, button etc) match the MIDI settings on the receiver. For example, if the rst fader on the ProjectMix I/O is set to Channel 1, CC 7, it will operate the parameter on the receiver that is also set to Channel 1, CC 7 (CC7 or continuous controller #7 is assigned to adjust volume by the MIDI Specication, so you can expect that if you assign a fader or knob on the ProjectMix I/O to CC7 it will control volume on the receiving device). So, in order for you to use the ProjectMix I/O as a MIDI control device, you need to set the channel number and parameter number of each controller you want to use to match the parameter settings of the receiver. You can choose to either adjust the settings of the receiving device so they match the ProjectMix I/O, or you can change the settings in the ProjectMix I/O to match those of the receiver (not all devices are adjustable, so in many cases you will need to make the setting changes on the ProjectMix I/O). With regard to plug-ins, virtual synthesizers and sound modules in your computer, technology has made communication between a controlling device and a receiver even easier with a function called MIDI Learn.
It is becoming standard for software applications to include a feature called MIDI Learn. This is, by far, the most convenient way to set up MIDI communication between two devices. In fact, it doesnt require you to change anything on the ProjectMix I/O. Instead, the program will match itself to any incoming MIDI messages it receives. While different programs implement this function in various ways, the general method to follow takes three steps. First, enable the MIDI Learn feature on the software. Second, click on the on-screen control that you want to assign, and nally, move the fader or knob (or press the button) on the ProjectMix I/O that you want to use. When you move or press the desired control on the ProjectMix I/O, the software receives these messages and instantly locks control of its parameter to the fader or knob youre adjusting. Repeat this simple process for every control on the ProjectMix I/O you want to assign. After youre nished and you disengage MIDI Learn, your settings are saved in the software. The default MIDI settings in the ProjectMix I/O give each separate control on the unit a completely unique MIDI assignment. Therefore, you can use the MIDI Learn function successfully by leaving the ProjectMix I/O at its default setting.
If you want to control a DAW or other device that does not have MIDI Learn capabilities, you need to recongure the ProjectMix I/O to match the settings in the software or device. This is not difcult, but somewhat more involved than using MIDI Learn. First, you need to nd out how the parameters in the receiving device are assigned. This is usually spelled out in the users manual for the device or software. For instance, if you want to control the brightness lter on a synth, look at the MIDI Specication table commonly found at the back of the synths users manual. Once you have this information, pick a controller on the ProjectMix I/O and assign the same CC number to that knob or fader. If youve done it correctly, when you move the controller on the ProjectMix I/O, the parameter on the receiving device will change.
