    I just bought the preset system, but I didn’t get all of the presets that were mentioned in this video. How do I get all of these basic presets?

      Hey Allday, you should have everything unless it wasn’t installed properly. A couple of the Mixologies may have had their names changed during the update process. If you need anything though, feel free to email us at or post on the forums.
