Professional Mixing Features
The Alto Professional Live 2404 is a pro 24-channel, 4-bus mixer equipped with the tools you need to create the perfect mix. With flexible routing options and a multitude of onboard DSP tools, Live 2404 fits the demands of most live performance environments. It features 18 balanced XLR inputs with switchable phantom power, 3-band EQs with sweepable mids for additional tonal shaping, four aux sends per-channel for external effects and monitoring, and a 9-band graphic EQ for main or monitor outputs. A headphone jack with an independent level control enables additional monitoring and mixing. 60mm faders with LED meters provide precise control and visual feedback for accurate, hands-on mixing. With its diverse connectivity options, Live 2404 can handle any sized event from small coffee house gigs to mid-sized ensembles to full-stage rock bands.

Analog Compression & Superior Sound Quality
Live 2404 offers high-fidelity sound and high-quality DSP tools in a single package. Each microphone channel is outfitted with a high-headroom ultra-low-noise DNA microphone preamp for unprecedented sound quality and a robust audio signal path. Live 2404's high headroom results in cleaner mixes, a purer signal path, and loud, punchy audio. Onboard analog compression (channels 1-8) helps control dynamics and gel instruments together for a cohesive, defined mix. With high headroom, pristine sound, and built-in dynamic control, Live 2404 ensures that the full dynamic range of your mix comes across with striking clarity.

USB Audio Interface
Record your mix directly to a Mac or PC with a single USB connection. Live 2404's built-in USB port allows engineers, producers, and performers to convert two channels of 24-bit audio (Main Mix or Sub Mix 1/2) straight to a computer. Record live performances, band practices, theater performances, speaking events, and any other live sound event onto your computer for additional editing, mixing, and post-production. The USB connection is bi-directional, enabling sound files stored on your computer to be streamed to and played through Live 2404.

100 High-Quality Alesis DSP Effects
Live 2404 comes ready to handle any mixing situation with premium 24-bit Alesis effects built right into its design. Select from 100 DSP effects that give you additional creative control in any mixing environment. Choose from room and space delays, small and large hall acoustics, plate and spring reverbs, flangers, choruses, and more. The effects presets make it easy to dial in your favorite sound or experiment with different effect settings on the fly.

Color-coded Interface
Often, live sound environments are dimly lit and offer poor visibility to the mixing engineer. Live 2404 solves this problem by color coding each section of the mixer and providing brightly colored knobs so you can quickly and easily find what you need to adjust. Blue, green, red, yellow and white pots are instantly easy to identify in low lighting. LED indicators for output level, peak, and phantom power also assist in making sure that you have multiple visual cues that reflect everything you're hearing.

    Comments about Alto LIVE 2404 24-Channel 4-Bus Mixer:

    I've been playing in various local bands for over 20 years and have always had to rely on others for PA gear. I finally found myself with the means to get my own and like everyone else, wanted the best bang for my buck. During my research I came across the Alto and initially dismissed it because I had never really heard of them and no one I knew had one. The more I researched and compared, I kept finding myself going back to it. The thing that stuck out the most was that to get the same features from Mackie, Yamaha, etc., the price was doubled or more. I agonized over my decision for quite some time and finally decided, what the heck, I'm going to take a chance. I'm very glad I did. This mixer does everything I wanted it to do. The only thing I wished was different, is you have to use the Aux 4 on each channel to control that channels effects. It would have been nice if it would have its own effects knob PLUS the Aux 4, but that is definitely not a deal breaker. I really like this mixer and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good unit for a decent price. I do not have a home recording studio so I can not vouch for its use in that area, but for live performance...big thumbs up.
