Cumberland, RI (January 25, 2007)--Last week at Winter NAMM, Alesis announced its new line of MultiMix mixers featuring USB 2.0 connectivity. Available in 8- and 16-channel configuration, these compact tabletop mixers feature low noise analog electronics and one hundred 28-bit digital effects, plugging directly into your laptop's USB port to create a versatile at home or on-the-go recording environment.

Alesis MultiMix 12-Channel USBThe USB 2.0 technology incorporated into the MultiMix USB 2.0 Series mixers provides for high bandwidth recording of multiple 24-bit/44.1 - 96 kHz audio channels from the mixer to your computer (PC/Windows or Mac OSX). The MultiMix USB 2.0 mixers are cost-effective; both 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 reverb, delay, chorus, and flanging. Each channel provides 3-band EQ with high/low shelving and mid band pass/reject.

The MultiMix USB 2.0 8-channel mixer provides 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 USB 2.0 16-channel mixer has eight high-gain mic/line (XLR and quarter-inch balanced) inputs, with the remaining I/O connectivity identical to its smaller sibling.

Additional features of the MultiMix USB 2.0 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.

Alesis introduced 8-, 12-, and 16-channel configurations of its MultiMix mixer with FireWire connectivity in 2005. These compact tabletop mixers feature DICE II FireWire technology.
