Note: The Converter Object replaces the IMixer Interface.
Contains the methods and properties to setup a mixer for ALL PNA Mixer/Converter applications.

Scratch vs Applied Mixer PropertiesEach mixer configuration has two sets of properties:
Power settings are immediately applied to both the Scratch and Applied mixer. A successful Calculate also performs an Apply. Note: Queries always return the Applied mixer properties. Therefore, first send Apply Method before querying new settings.
