MESSE09: Complete PA System In One Box


Alesis have announced the TransActive Solo which they describe as the most portable PA system. "You'll actually spend less time and energy carrying in and setting up," said Jim Norman, Product Manager, Alesis. "The TransActive Solo is really perfect for solo performers who don't need a complicated, heavy amplification system.
Here's the details from Alesis...
The TransActive Solo is a complete, battery-powered PA system in a single, portable cabinet musicians can carry in one hand. It has inputs for all kinds of instruments, a dock for iPod, a built-in amplifier and a two-way loudspeaker for complete sound reinforcement. Performers can play small gigs with just one speaker box thanks to the TransActive Solo's built-in carry handle for easy transport to and from the show.
Musicians can connect their guitar, microphone and other instruments directly to the TransActive Solo's input section. It supplies a combination XLR – 1/4-inch input for microphones, additional 1/4-inch inputs that support both guitars and line-level instruments, and RCA inputs for drum machines, samplers and other line-level audio devices. With TransActive Solo's built-in dock, performers can dock their iPod and use it as a backing track or interlude-music source.
Users can take the TransActive Solo with them for remote gigs such as street performances or parties without a wall power source, thanks to the built-in rechargeable battery. The system can deliver up to 12 hours of cordless amplification without a charge, or run limitlessly on wall power. The TransActive Solo has a built-in amplifier for high efficiency and all-in-one performance. Its large speaker delivers excellent low end and powerful, crisp highs.
Pricing and Availability:
The TransActive Solo will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers Q3, 2009. More information:
