OVERVIEW

Powerful little mixer with USB.

This is a very successful mixer for Alesis, now with some very valuable improvements over the previous design. MultiMix 4 USB FX is a four-channel desktop mixer with a USB digital audio interface that lets you mix live, in the home studio, and record audio directly to a computer. This compact mixer is perfect for using in computer-recording setups, intimate live-sound environments, video-editing and production studios, and portable podcasting setups. It outputs line-level analog audio and stereo 16-bit, 44.1/48 kHz digital audio over USB for recording low-noise, CD-quality mixes directly to your Mac or PC.

Plug it in
The MultiMix 4 USB FX mixer has four input channels, all of which can accept a 1/4" line input. You can plug XLR microphones into channels one and two, including condensers thanks to the selectable 48V-phantom power supply. You can also plug a guitar or bass directly into channel one's switchable high-impedance input. A stereo, 1/4" headphone output has its own level control for private monitoring.

Get in the Mix
Ideal for live sound engineering or home recording, MultiMix 4 USB FX features onboard volume, pan, and EQ controls for making quick, accurate adjustments to your mix. The MultiMix 4 USB FX mixer has a two-channel, five-stage, multicolor LED meter for visual monitoring the main output level. Channels one and two offer switchable high-pass filtering at 75Hz to reduce low-frequency rumble, handling, and wind noise. Channels one and two provide high- and low-shelving EQs, independent gain trims, and have independent pan controls. For convenient stereo mixing and recording, channels three and four are configured as a stereo pair at the level and pan controls.

Record via USB
MultiMix 4 USB FX contains a complete USB recording interface. Plug the MultiMix 4 USB FX's class-compliant USB connection into your Mac or PC without the need for software drivers and enjoy a digital-direct stereo connection with virtually any audio software application. The MultiMix 4 USB FX enables bidirectional stereo playback, so you can record the stereo Main output into your computer and listen back using the mixer as an interface from software to headphones and monitoring loudspeakers. Cubase 7 LE comes bundled with MultiMix 4 USB FX and gives you a powerful software environment to record, edit, and bounce down your mixes. Plus, you can record stereo audio directly to your iPad with the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (sold separately).

Built-In Effects
MultiMix 4 USB FX comes with high-quality Alesis DSP effects that include spacious reverbs, delays, phasers, and much more. For lush mixes, the internal effects processors enables you to add extra depth to live sound--say, a long delay on the vocalist's channel--or beef up dry recordings with some extra ambiance. Now, you can use professional audio effects with your mixer whether you're out mixing the live gig or at home recording at your desktop.

    Comments about Alesis MultiMix 4 USB FX 4-Channel Mixer with Effects & USB Audio Interface:

    This Mixer is also an Audio Interface as well. The effects is an additional. I love that it has a power button because other models has lights that stays on until you unplug the unit or turn off the whole system.

        I rarely return gear I buy, but this is the muddiest sounding mixer I've ever heard. Effects are also of poor quality on this model. Especially all in direct contrast with the older model of a 4 channel Alessi mixer I owned. Had to ship it back same day. To add insult to injury had to pay to send it back.

          Comments about Alesis MultiMix 4 USB FX 4-Channel Mixer with Effects & USB Audio Interface:

          I've been through several USB mixers from several brands and they all multi-track. I took for granted that no one makes a USB mixer that won't. My bad for not reading the reviews. Really, what's the point in having a mixer with multiple channels that won't multi-track? There's some work-arounds: you could put your input in the left channel and output in the right. But that's silly. Some reviews are complaining about the sound, that there's a hiss or a buzz. I get zero white-noise. The sound is top-notch. No complaints there. I just wish it was a multi-track recorder. It would be an ideal fit for me.

          Comments about Alesis MultiMix 4 USB FX 4-Channel Mixer with Effects & USB Audio Interface:

          Can't mutiltitrack since there's no practical way to record a new track without existing tracks looping back in via USB. Plus, on windows 7 the max. recording level of 4 is way to low to record a useful track. Anything higher than 4 and you getting an increasingly louder hiss in your recording.

              Use in the studio for submixes. Use another at gigs; love having the FX built-in. Worth the money.

                Got one of these to record a salon concert in a private home. Phantom powered XLR inputs and USB output were just what I needed, and I was up in Audacity on my laptop in no time. Now it's standing in for the older Mackie 12-channel mixer in my home studio for V/O work and audiobook recording.

                I particularly like the dual gain controls, one on the mic inputs and another on the post-EQ and pan, on every channel. Very easy to use, hardly need a manual it's so intuitive.
