SNAMM08: Rack-Mount Mixer


Alesis has introduced MultiMix 8 Line, a flexible, affordable 1U rack line mixer.
The company tell us that MultiMix 8 Line is an eight-channel, line-level mixer for stage, studio, boardrooms, conference rooms, health clubs, restaurants, houses of worship, and other installed sound applications. The mixer is also a useful tool for any band, especially for keyboard players and multi-instrumentalists mixing or sub-mixing multiple sound sources.
MultiMix 8 Line features eight stereo channels with a mic/line input on channel one and stereo effects send and return. When a mono signal is present on any input or stereo send, the Left signal is automatically summed to mono for mono and stereo compatibility.
Two MultiMix 8 Line mixers can be connected with inexpensive, common TRS cables, and the connected mixers share the same mix bus for 16 stereo input channels. An effects bus is provided so that connected reverbs, compressors or other effects chains can be shared between two linked mixers.
Simple, intuitive signal clip and overload LEDs for each input and a five-stage LED level indicator at the main output are provided for intuitive visual monitoring.
The key features of MultiMix 8 Line include:
  • Eight-channel stereo line mixer
  • Microphone/line input on channel one
  • Stereo effects bus can be shared between two linked units
  • Channel expansion feature for expansion to 16 stereo input channels
  • Individual Pan and Effects Send controls on each channel
  • Signal clip and overload LEDs on each input channel
  • Stereo five-stage LED ladder for output level indication
  • Stereo monitor out
  • Mono input source compatibility for stereo output
  • 1RU 19-inch standard equipment rack size
Alesis believe that professional musicians, audio contractors and A/V consultants alike will agree that MultiMix 8 Line is the tool to get the job done at the right price. Pricing and Availability:
MultiMix 8 Line hits retailers Q3-2008. Price TBC.
