Re: [podcasters] Alesis Multimix Firewire mixers
- I've been using an Alesis Multimix 8 for a few months now, and I really like
it. You can use each input strip on the Multimix as a track in your DAW
software (I use Garageband), or you can create stereo pairs. The Multimix
has mic pre's and phantom power built-in, so you can connect all kinds of
audio sources. You can also use the Multimix as a stand-alone analog
mixer. It does have some built-in effects, but unfortunately, you can't use
them while recording with the unit. Feel free to e-mail me off-list if you
have any specific questions, and I'll try to help you out.
