Simplified MIDI control.
Do you remember a time when controllers were simple? In today’s vast assortment of features it seems more is the answer, but sometimes it’s best just to get right down to the basics. The Livid Alias 8 is a straightforward approach to mixing music, launching plug-ins, or just setting up a one-button function for your most common tasks to simplify and enhance your workflow.
Compact, portable, and slimline
The Livid Alias 8 delivers the quick and reliable control you need in a durable, compact package with high-quality controls. Perfect as a portable mixer control, the Alias 8 is designed to satisfy the essential needs of every studio or a live rig. Eight "channel strips" of knobs, faders, and buttons, and a full-size master fader easily adapt to traditional mixing. The dual-function encoder makes it easy to change the MIDI channel (up to 15 channels), instantly extending its reach to control more of your software, while always keeping track of any LED feedback on the other channels. The encoder can also be used as a MIDI control for flipping through tracks or adjusting your cue volume - just push the encoder down to change its function.
With such a large number of controls available, the Alias 8 is a perfect match for a quick set-up with your software’s MIDI-learn function to quickly tweak your music, exactly the way you want. The Alias 8 keeps it simple and straightforward so you can adapt it to your workflow, instead of trying to figure out how it works. The special “settings channel” offers some essential configuration options that can be set with simple MIDI CC’s, so if you have something more complex in mind, you can configure the Alias 8 with something as obvious as a MIDI track!
Solid as a rock
Of course, it wouldn't be a Livid controller without controls that feel great, RGB backlit buttons, and a stylish and strong aluminum case. As Livid’s slimmest controller ever (the body is under 1" [2.5 cm] tall) the Alias 8 fits nicely in your laptop bag. Using an all-new extruded aluminum build, the sturdy construction makes for a solid controller that can stand up to the abuses of the road but look great in the studio. With a footprint smaller than a sheet of paper, the Alias 8 won't take up a lot of room on your desk, but remains comfortable to use so you can be confident in your control.
If you’re ready for a controller that will simplify your workflow, instead of cluttering it up with unnecessary bells and whistles, then the Livid Alias 8 will make a great addition to your studio.
