1.  Copy all the files on the diskette for the DOS mixer to your
MS-Windows3.1x directory.

2.  Open the file SYSTEM.INI in your MS-Windows3.1x directory. Go to
the section with the header

         [Analog Devices Sound System]
     
      Search for the strings

         SBIOAddress=0xnnn
         WSSIOAddress=0xmmm

      where 'nnn' and 'mmm' stands for a 3 digit number. At the DOS
prompt, type the following:

         C:\WINDOWS\DOSMIXER.EXE  /WSS:mmm /SB:nnn
   
      where 'nnn' and 'mmm' stand for the same 3 digit numbers.
      Note: to revert back to the previous values, type:

        C:\WINDOWS\DOSMIXER.EXE /AUTO

3.  In the menu that appears, select the volume control you'd like to
use, and set it accordingly. You can repeat this with all remaining
controls, before exiting to the DOS command line again.
