Alesis MultiMix 8 USB 2.0
Alesis, wow its a USB mixer ideal for mobile recording great lets get one.

Don't bother.

Yes the sound is ok for £99 bit of kit,and its built ok aswell but will it ever last a session??? no

I used this kit with Cubase, a brand new top notch laptop PC and ive used it on a mac the thing just crashs.

it sends the pc into mayhem with blue screens error messages and problems. and the mac it stays on, theres just suddenly loads of latency to start it crashing and then no input or output sound, you have to restart it.

it is very cheap maybe the cheapest on the market, but i would rather buy a more expensive and reliable bit of kit.

UTILIZATION

Easy peasy

all dead easy. shame about reliability real shame.

SOUNDS

Pretty good really eq wise, and not much feedback for a cheap bit of kit. sound surprised me really

OVERALL OPINION

Lasted 1 month, very poor overall. the good aspects are hindered by the unreliability

would not touch one again. went on to a digidesign pro tools M-Box 2 not looked back.

OVERALL OPINION

I do not use much anymore, but about 3 years.

What is so special that you like most and least?



Minimum:

Knobs crack after a year or two, and regularly.
OVERHEATING VERY QUICKLY ...

As:

Alesis MultiMix 8 USB 2.0
Rack Console with 8-channel adapter Rackmount Alesis home. Takes about 6U.
This adapter is quite hard to find, I was lucky he drags one at Thomann.

Input 4 Jack / XLR (phantom power) Mono + 2 Stereo Jack. RCA effects loop, headphone Jack 6.3. Sampling up to 96kHz 24bit.

I do not use USB in the effect section does not work with this mode (that is wanted, it's not a bug) but it exists and works well.
They are mainly applicable only reverb and delay a human voice I think.

UTILIZATION

Installation is very simple USB driver for Windows plug-and-play for real.
Driver for 64bit Windows Seven available since early this year.

The manual is well done.

The table is friendly-user.

SOUNDS

It seems clear, but generates a lot of breath (for my taste) when the hardware sound quality is good so we put out the minimum acceptable we play hard and increases the sound :-)

The equalization plays a role but is not parametric.

OVERALL OPINION

It is used for 2 years now first under XP 32bit and now in Seven in 64bits.
The latency displayed in the ASIO driver is higher in Seven but we do not tell the difference with XP.

This is the first such model that we use. I've used a few consoles DJ.

What I like most is its price and features and perfect for my use in groups with electronic drums and guitarist / bassist / vocalist connected to it (with or without effects).
I have not found an equivalent except in name "couillondaye" pseudo Halleumandeuh who likes to copy others.

What I like least is that on some computers, the sound processor and hard drives can be heard with increasing sampling frequency. I think it comes from the USB ports on the motherboard that are poorly insulated, because these sounds exist only connecting the USB table.

With experience and more money in my pocket I would buy one less prone to noise and problems with the USB mass of PC.

Otherwise, it's an excellent compromise before moving on professional equipment.

Alesis MultiMix 8 USB 2.0
The characteristic sound on the Alesis website.
On this point concole is perfect for the price.

UTILIZATION

Usage is very simple, I've never needed to go see the manual in short simple and effective.

SOUNDS

So on this point have little to say that the preamp for the price are correct, but it stops there, it blows when they are pushed back, but it's all still a good headroom before her is blowing, the power supply is 48V 48V although I measure so no problems on that side.

OVERALL OPINION

I use now for 1 year and I do not regret this purchase, it's perfect for beginners and can be used to record a small live concert, especially since it is USB 2.0 so it can true record 8 tracks simultaneously.

To summarize this console has a good quality / price ratio, it is in my opinion perfect for the beginning because it can be used both for a little live recording, it will appeal to beginners in search of the need to register or live on stage. Perfect for beginners
