A series of 4 LEDs per level (not essential but comfortable Live)
A compressor / limiter and gate per

a separate microphone talk-over on the console
An insert effect for every
Of LEDs to display the position of each key press!
No 64-bit drivers ... CORRECTION:
A big bravo for the technical support I want to emphasize quality and responsiveness! I got by mail attachment, just hours after my request, 64-bit Windows drivers for Multimix USB 2 BETA VERSION (this is why they are not mentioned officially). Congratulations!
The links in here, all offering the same files posted for downloading by BuBuOne (thank you!)

Very easy to use.
Not enough experience or competence to judge its sound quality ... But the result is perfect for me!
I have had that for several days. This is my first console after 1 week of testing the MultiMix 8 USB2 (traded as unsuitable to Live).
I find great value for money. FYI I paid € 499, 2 year warranty, at Action Music in Toulouse.

valentin35132's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Handy"
Missing semi parametric mids, insert the compressor or gate.
An assistant or two more would not be too much.
Console is easy to use and easy to use multitrack with a computer. Management monitiring is not there more simple but having read the manual is good.
The preamp is not crazy but correct and EQ are not terrible, do not rely too much on it. No breath at all.
I have 4 years and this is one of the only analog console at this price that can handle multitrack recording 16 tracks. Connected to a computer is a formidable weapon.
I regret that we can not manage the multi-return machine software, you can listen to his return Huste stereo master.

Blue Jester's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- 1 RCA auxiliary input
- On each slice: Hi (12 kHz), Mid (2.5 kHz), Low (80 Hz) + return + A + B return balance + solo + mute + fader.
- Exit facades, returns, control room, headphones (equivalent to ctrlRM), RCA line-out, exit 3 / 4 out (this sends out all the tracks mutated).
- USB 2.0 interface: Stereo output multi-input.
- CPU to hundreds of built-in effects
By no parametric equalizer against the mix.
- Very easy to take in hand, routing patterns on the console are very intuitive.
- The knobs have a lock to zero (useful when working in the dark) and the resistance of the fader is just right amount.
- The manual is very detailed (but beware, in English), friendly, and oriented beginners.
The preamps are very good quality, the sound comes out of the table is very good, very well balanced, it is a treat to have a balanced. A few blows with the approach of 0 db on the main mix, but it is not meant to sound with the Wacken either ... The effects are very good too, super interesting voices and guitars.
It's been a year since I squinted over, I had already read the PDF manual and knew by heart before you even touch it!
There, I finally decided to pay me and I do not regret ... At the moment I do not have used that again, but I can not wait to add sound to a concert with, it's really super easy to access.
The feature most useful for my group is to route a track "mutated" to a dedicated output, and it is possible with a simple button to send the output to the control room. As a result, the headphones, my drummer hears the click the + mix (a track mutated) it avoids to hear the metronome as much in return in the facades.
Comes with Cubase LE multitrack recording, you will still need a good bike to nab the 16 tracks simultaneously.
The nice little trick as well: the transformer is supplied with a super long (well, the transformer itself is in the middle of the cable because it is a fairly large block), and connects to the console with a screw system : can not therefore to remove accidentally shoot someone in the cable However, if the transformer loose, it's not the hyper next door that you can find to replace it ...
The price / quality ratio is really excellent, and if you do not need to multitrack recording, use the USB version (not USB2) is the same half as expensive, but endangered because gradually replaced by the Multimix USB 2.0.
For that price, with its functionality, ease of use, and sounds, is a well deserved 10/10.

Gnrale configuration is simple. Using a word like the operation of a mixer core.
Personally I use it to rpter every week with my band and it's amazing how the quality of its rendering is good. Before I was using a behringer console, and I can tell you that we strongly feel the difference. Ds before you connect a microphone singing and we rode a little gain and volume morning breath! and nothing since I have this console Alesis! We feel that the quality of electronic components is much better.
To return to the fact, although Obviously I use this console to the recording. The same console in it nothing fancy to record, there is just connect it to PC via USB cable.
Any other configuration is done with the PC.
-Installation of drivers -> OK!
-Installed as sound card -> OK!
Rglage-inputs and outputs with software -> ok! But attention, we must know the software you use, but normally it's not complicated trs. But since when I install the console that I n'tais beginners in music software (Cubase SX3 uses j) I will not deny that I have a little galrer.
The manual is trs incomplet.bref explanations for franais, German and Spanish ... The most important explanations (such as software-) are in English. it's a shame ...
As I said prcedemment no breath. a clear and fairly prcis.
A qualisation that works well. it is a pity we can not rgler more middles, and I find that the knobs are a level raction. I mean, it's all or nothing at times. For example: If you make a little "low", it nothing happens (or not), and then suddenly you go back a little and BOOM! but hey it works and then even when I use some of qua .. you can edit any of cubase. Any fawn a pure, still the best (well I prfre).
There are also built-in effects (FX) in the console. I use them just because their quality is average.
I use it for 2 months now. J'apprcie much the fact that you can record multitrack on the computer. Since I record mostly drum part being able to have each track dcompos on the computer helps a lot for mixing etc..
The quality of sound also made me much tonn. (No breath). Nothing to do with the poor consoles behringer console or other low-end: it is that I really saw the difference.
Report qualitprix: acceptable because it was truly a "home studio" for not too expensive. but I advise you to buy the right microphones for the best! and was worth it.
I think probably the same kind j'achterais console later volumes but also (more pro yet), but I am delighted with my purchase.
