Alesis MultiMix Firewire Mixers Ship
The MultiMix 16

The MultiMix Firewire mixers were first spotted at this years Summer NAMM. Taking the form of compact tabletop mixers, they feature low noise analog electronics, 100 28-bit digital effects and more interestingly Firewire technology. The Firewire connections are handled using DICE II chipsets and enable 24-bit IO audio to be sent to and from the mixer for recording and monitoring of digital audio. All three models feature high-gain mic/line preamps, 48V phantom power, auxiliary sends/returns, and an onboard effects engine encompassing one hundred 28-bit preset effects, including reverbs, delays, chorus, and flanging. Each channel provides 3-band EQ with high/low shelving and mid band pass/reject. The MultiMix 8- and 12-channel mixers provide four high-gain mic/line (XLR and quarter-inch balanced) inputs with phantom power, two stereo balanced quarter-inch line inputs, an Aux send that can send to either onboard or external effects, and a stereo Aux return. The MultiMix 16 has eight high-gain mic/line (XLR and quarter-inch balanced) inputs, with the remaining I/O connectivity identical to its smaller siblings. Additional features of the MultiMix FireWire Series include separate quarter-inch balanced main and monitor outs, plus headphone out. Plug and Play operation is available under Windows XP and Mac OSX—eliminating the need for special drivers or setup. Completing the system package is the inclusion of Steinberg’s Cubase LE recording software. With a suggested retail price of $599 (MultiMix 8), $699 (MultiMix 12), and $799 (MultiMix 16), Alesis’ new MultiMix FireWire are extremely good value for money. The MultiMix FireWire Series is available now. More From: ALESIS
