Two words, my friends: Supreme value. If you are looking to create an entery to mid level DAW for a home project studio...this little $399 gem is a compelling option. It works great as a live mixer (with some nice little onboard effects) and has enough ins/outs to do most of what you will ever need (I mean, how much can you expect for $399?) It is worth it just for the D/A interface...not to mention the flexibility of having 16 input channels to layer down. I will update my review after my upcoming recording session. So far, so good...

I liked this mixer quite a bit when I first installed cubase and installed the extra driver from steinberg.com to record 8 tracks. However, the process for turning it and the computer on and starting the program is somewhat tedious and confusing in order for it to work right. The preamps were decent, and the eq's worked well enough for my skills at the time. Somewhere past 6 months of owning it, the firewire stopped sending the signal to the computer, and I sent it in for repair. It was free of charge except for the shipping cost to get it there. The Alesis customer support was very helpful and friendly, however their hours are not agreeable to those of us on the west coast. 7am-5pm EST. Between the issues with the firewire and the complicated start up procedure, i just figured i'd rather go with a seperate mixer and a seperate interface for a more expandable set up.

My MultiMix

Comments about Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire 16-Channel Analog Mixer:

All I have to say is this is the best bang for the buck. The MultiMix is a great interface as well as a very good stand alone mixer. How did I ever live without it? I think I need another....

Mac OS X driver problems cause frequent crashes

By Geronimo Fontaine

from Texas

Comments about Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire 16-Channel Analog Mixer:

The Alesis MultiMix FireWire seems so promising. It can record all sixteen channels simultaneously into discrete tracks in Logic Studio. It is quite affordable. It can record 24-bit. It sounds pretty good. For the price, it's only a bit more than a plain old two-channel firewire or USB audio interface. But all that is marred by problems with the Mac OS X drivers. Configure your machine to go to sleep after a certain period? When it wakes up, it will crash. The traceback will show the crash occurred from within the Alsesis firewire drivers. Talk to Alesis tech support? "Your memory's not fast enough." "It's Apple's fault." Et cetera. This has been going on for seven months. Finally after sending them the crash reports, they agree it's not the memory speed. They post a beta release of a new driver. It's worse. It'll work for maybe an hour and then freak out. Audio starts glitching. The only thing you can do is shut down the computer, power-cycle the mixer, and boot back up. (Loud pop when you turn it on. Lame!) You might get an hour. You might get two. Or you might get five minutes. I want to like this unit. I would like it, if it actually worked with the Mac. As it is, I'm going to have to buy some kind of audio interface that actually works.

Versatile centerpiece to your Sound Arsenal

By Heavy G

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire 16-Channel Analog Mixer:

Project Studio? Live? It performs well in both arenas. I use if for my band's live mixer and it works beautifully. The onboard DSP is great and simplifies my setup (no outboard gear). For a DAW / Project Studio application I would have to give it an incomplete rating because I have struggled to get it synchronized with Logic (loaded on my MacBook Pro). I am working through some driver issues and have not resolved them yet...I will check back when I have resolution. I am currently using the main mix outs from the analag section of the mixer to the unbalanced inputs of my MAudio firewire solo (and it works fine). However, this is just a short term bandaid...and I hope to have it fixed shortly. Overall, it is a great piece of gear. Factor in the price and you have a great value. Alesis Technical Support has been ok. More to come...I sell technology for a living, so I know that software issues can be a pain (and I knew this going in). The hard part is getting it synched...

Horrible Customer Service

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire 16-Channel Analog Mixer:

I originally placed the order on July 27 and was told 2-5 day shipping. I got an email on the 30th stating they needed to verify some information so I called and was told the verification department was closed. I called again on a different time and was told they were closed again. I was finally able to get a hold of them today and was told the order would not ship until next week. I need it this weekend so I asked if they could ship it overnight and was told no so I asked to speak with a supervisor. I spoke with Brandon who actually told me I was stupid for asking him to ship it overnight because he had been told not to ship orders overnight. He actually called me stupid. My order was not shipped as promised so I called again on August 9th to find out why and was told Brandon had cancelled my order and notated the account I had requested this. I couldn?t believe it. He made unauthorized changes and falsified account remarks, and this is a supervisor! I will never order from Guitar Center again.

By Dave

Comments about Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire 16-Channel Analog Mixer:

The Alesis 16 channel multimix is overall a very nice mixer. It has features of mixers twice it's price and then some! I have had some issues with latency, but most were cleared up with a bit of tweaking. I've had an overall good experence using it with my pc with only a few minor issues. As a live mixer it is great! If you need a mixer that can handle both DAW and live use, THIS IS IT!

great product awesome price

By gordon snow

from ottawa kansas

Comments about Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire 16-Channel Analog Mixer:

Alesis multimix16 firewire. This mixer is great for live sound, or recording. I have used other products for multi-track recording, and this is far above anything I have ever used. First thing I liked about this was the price it has more inputs than most other computer multi-track interfaces and u can premix the signal going to the pc. Secondly I like the fact that there is a stereo return that comes directly from the pc. This makes it easy to monitor your recording or anything that you are looking at on your computer. Thirdly it comes with all connections to hook it to your pc. (ie: fire wire cable Qbase makes it easy on my windows XP system). The only draw back I found with the multimix16 was that the output section is all on the top of the mixer and there are no XLR outs. Over all well worth the cash and great investment for bands, or the one man band looking for great CD recordings/ demos..

Awesome mixer for the price

By Jeff Hammond

from Seattle

Comments about Alesis MultiMix 16 FireWire 16-Channel Analog Mixer:

For the most part this has most of the feature of the higher end mixers. When I compared this against the Mackie Onyx series I was blown away with the feature set of this mixer. We have been getting some great recordings now. You will definately want to buy the full version of Cubase with this. They make a great pair.
