[Musikmesse] Alesis MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX
Alesis announces the MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX, an eight-channel audio mixer with digital effects and a built-in multi-channel recording interface.
Users can employ the MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX's four XLR inputs with independent gain pots on channels one through four and switchable phantom power supply for condenser microphones.
They can also use the MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX's eight 1/4-inch inputs for instruments, and pairs of RCA jacks for line-level audio sources. Guitar players will enjoy a guitar-direct input, enabling them to plug their instruments into the mixer for amp-free recording.
Studio owners who already have their own effects processing gear will appreciate the MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX's auxiliary input, which is assignable to pre and post-fader points in the audio signal path. The MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX offers EQ controls including sweepable parametric midrange controls on channels one and two.
In addition to mixing, the MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX contains a USB recording interface that transmits audio to a connected Mac or PC at up to 24-bit, 96kHz resolution.
Musicians and engineers can plug the MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX's class-compliant USB connection into their computer and enjoy a digital-direct stereo connection with an audio software application.
The MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX sends each of the eight input channels plus the 2-Track input to the computer individually, and enables stereo monitoring from software.
The MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX comes with a copy of Steinberg Cubase LE digital audio workstation (DAW) software.
The MultiMix 8 USB 2.0 FX will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers in Q3 2011.
