OVERVIEW

Lightweight, small footprint, lots of features.

Professional Mixing Features
The Alto Professional Live 802 is a pro 8-channel, 2-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 802 fits the demands of many common live performance environments. It features 5 balanced XLR inputs with switchable phantom power, 3-band EQs for additional tonal shaping, two 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.

Analog Compression & Superior Sound Quality
Live 802 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 802's high headroom results in cleaner mixes, a purer signal path, and loud, punchy audio. Onboard analog compression (channels 1-2) helps control dynamics and gel instruments together for a cohesive, defined mix. With high headroom, pristine sound, and built-in dynamic control, Live 802 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 802'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 802.

100 High-Quality Alesis DSP Effects
Live 802 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 802 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 802 8-Channel 2-Bus Mixer:

Can't monitor pre-recorded tracks from DAW while recording with this. You can either here what you are recording or here what has already recorded , not both at the same time. That is like shooting blind. Useless. It's only good for live use.

      Comments about Alto LIVE 802 8-Channel 2-Bus Mixer:

      I bought this board to have an option to hook it up via USB for recording, also because it had some built-in effects, compression and more mic-ins than the Alto board I had been using. The board works as expected although I had a problem with recording where I hear a high pitched whine when I have it hooked up via USB but I have other boards that also have the same issue so the problem isn't specific to this board just to USB recording in general. I haven't solved it yet but I've been using this board to do live shows all the time and it works great for that.
