A compact, affordable analog mixer with FireWire.
The dual-purpose Alesis MultiMix 8 FireWire 8-Channel Analog Mixer is a FireWire interface with real faders, knobs, and EQ. The MultiMix 8 is also a rockin' standalone analog mixer with quality Alesis effects and flexible signal routing. Each input channel on the mixer (plus the stereo mix) is sent into your computer and a stereo output is received from the computer for monitoring. The versatility of the Alesis Multimix 8 will fit your needs in your project studio, for live sound, portable recording with a laptop, sub mixing, and radio/TV production.
You get preamps with XLR and 1/4" balanced ins and phantom power on mono channels; balanced 1/4" ins, aux send, and stereo aux return on stereo channels; 28-bit effects; 3-band EQ on each channel; 1/4" balanced main and monitor outs; a headphone jack; and 24-bit, 44.1/48kHz A/D/A conversion. Steinberg Cubase LE is included.
From studio to stage
The MultiMix FireWire lets you record your band during the day and mix your live gig at night. Every input plus the stereo mix is sent to the computer while a stereo pair returns from the computer into the MultiMix for monitoring (and headphone mixes).
24-bit, 44.1/48kHz operation
The MultiMix 8 uses the same A/D and D/A conversion as the esteemed Alesis HD24 recorder for clean, pure, and totally professional conversion.
Next-generation FireWire technology
Alesis MultiMix 8 uses the brand new, high-performance TC Applied Technologies Dice II FireWire chip. Tha means superior clocking, state-of-the-art interfacing, and robust drivers all come standard!
Alesis effects built in
The MultiMix FireWire has 100 of Alesis' 28-bit digital effects built in. Reverbs, choruses, delays, and other effects can be mixed into your recording path or just used for zero-latency headphone mixes (the performer hears reverb in the headphones, but the track is recorded dry into the computer).
Rack it up
Alesis makes the MultiMix 8 rackmountable, with easy-to-attach rack ears available.
