Sapphire Pro 40 Owners—do you us MixControl?

I'm waiting for delivery on one of these units and have been checking out some of the videos on Focusrite's website. The MixControl software looks pretty capable—and pretty intense. I hadn't really thought that I would need all those features but now that I know about them I'm curious to know how many other owners are taking advantage of them.

I had just planned to use the mic pres and route into my DAW with Firewire, bringing back eight tracks with the analog outs into my board and calling it good. Possibly I need to rethink that. Any suggestions? Is the MixControl software primarily for monitoring and cue mixes?

I think it's designed mainly for routing and cue mixes as you said - the main feature being zero latency monitoring.

Personally I find that I can get away with monitoring through my DAW using a few EQs and reverbs etc. without much (if any) latency and this normally delivers a more pleasing sound.

I use it to route my outboard processors whenever I'm mixing. I have the 18i20 but they're both essentially the same.
