Alesis announced the MultiMix 8 USB FX, an eight-channel audio mixer with digital audio effects and USB recording interface.
The MultiMix 8 USB FX gives users a selection of XLR, 1/4-inch and RCA connectors for working with microphones, instruments and line-level audio sources. Condenser microphone users will appreciate the MultiMix 8 USB FX’s switchable phantom power supply, and guitarists will enjoy a guitar-direct input, enabling them to plug their instruments into the mixer for amp-free recording.
Alesis has given MultiMix 8 USB FX a range of effects, including some reminiscent of the classic Alesis PicoVerb. Studio owners who already have their own effects processing gear will appreciate the MultiMix 8 USB FX’s auxiliary input, which is assignable to pre and post-fader points in the audio signal path. Engineers will also appreciate that MultiMix 8 USB FX offers them flexible EQ controls including a sweepable parametric on channels one and two.
Like the other mixers in Alesis’ MultiMix USB series, including the MultiMix 4 USB and MultiMix 6 USB, the MultiMix 8 USB FX contains a USB recording interface. Musicians and engineers can plug the MultiMix 8 USB FX’s class-compliant USB connection into their Mac or PC without installing any software drivers and enjoy a digital-direct stereo connection with virtually any audio software application. The MultiMix 8 USB FX enables bidirectional stereo signal, so musicians can record the stereo Main output into their computer and listen back using the mixer as an interface from software to headphones and monitoring loudspeakers.
The MultiMix 8 USB FX will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers in July 2010.
