This is the Multi Mix 8 Firewire edition made by Alesis. It is a non-powered mixing board and recording console all in one. I bought it to record a decent demo for my rock band.

It appealed to me because I can use it live as a standalone mixer as well as record with it via Firewire into Cubase LE which is included with the purchase of the mixer.

I needed something that could record at least four tracks so I could record drums how I wanted to. I also wanted a easy to use software than Pro Tools. Also I was using a PC so the pickings where slim.

I paid $299 for this setup. The Mixer, cables and a power supply for the mixer. Also I got a manual for Cubase which was more than helpful.

Use it as a stand alone mixer or recording console. It pretty simple to setup. I didn't have to pull my hair out. There was no unwanted latency.

The preamps aren't pro level by any means, but they sound good. I like that you can get a decent sound on the mixer then send it into the computer (less mixing later)

None, just make sure your computer has a firewire port. My Dell did but a few computers do not come with them. No big deal a firewire port isn't expensive or hard to install.

Rock solid. I have had this for 2 years now. It traveled and got knocked around plenty in my laptop bag.

The knobs are firm and well marked. The power switch is right next to the Phantom Power switch so if you turn it on and hear nothing odds are you hit the wrong power button.

Records up to 8 channels into Firewire. Not many home studio units offer that in this price range. Great sounding board that has lasted me.
