At the NAMM 2004 Summer Session, Alesis introduced the new USB Multimix Series of digital mixers.
The MultiMix USB Series includes 3 different tabletop mixers, all featuring the high quality and high performance that Alesis is known for, at new lower price points.
The MultiMix USB Mixers are a new line of compact mixers featuring low noise analog electronics and 100 great-sounding 28-bit digital effects. Studio-quality components and effects processing combine with rock-solid construction. The MultiMix mixers also have USB audio, which allows direct computer audio interfacing for 16-bit simultaneous stereo input and output using standard recording software.
The MultiMix 8USB and 12USB have 4 high-gain mic/line. The MultiMix 16 USB has 8 high-gain mic/line (XLR and 1/4” balanced) inputs with phantom power, 2 stereo balanced 1/4” line inputs, aux send (can send to onboard or external effects), stereo aux return. All MultiMix USBs have 100 28-bit onboard preset effects including reverbs, delays, chorus, flanging, pitch and multi-effects, a 3-band EQ per channel with high/low shelving and mid band pass/reject.
Additional features of the MultiMix USB series include separate 1/4” balanced main and monitor outs, headphone out, an integrated USB Port to transfer audio directly between the MultiMix USB mixer and your computer, 16-bit stereo simultaneous inputs and outputs over USB. All have Plug and play operation under Windows and Mac OS.
Alesis President John E. “Jack” O’Donnell commented: “With the MultiMix USB Series, we’ve taken studio-grade mixing to the next level – the computer desktop. Now anyone can enjoy the benefits of Alesis quality and performance in these powerful, versatile, and portable products.”
