I have a home studio: If your home recording studio is close to this setup I think this would be a good choice. I haven’t used this mixer live, so I cant speak to that application.
I received it today and and found after calls to the manufactor that my unit was defective. The phantom power is not putting out the right voltage. So back to Amazon for an exchange. Hopefully this next one will be OK. Hope this isn’t a omen of whats to come. One person found this helpful. Top rated Most recent Top rated.

I’ve owned this mixer for a couple of weeks now. I am using Sonar X1 Producer with this board and it works very well. One thing people need to realize is that each channel does not necessarily put out a “stereo” track like we think it should be.
I stressed for hours trying to get any of the channels to output a stereo channel, the way I thought it should be. I was only getting what I thought was just the right or left side. I was given a link to the cakewalk site that explained stereo recording and what I was really needing I will link at the end.
What I realized is that channels 1 and 2 are Left and Right respectively, and channels 3 and 4, the same thing. After reading the article, I realized that my mixer was doing exactly what it was intended to do and that user error was the cause of my frustrations.
After getting past that, recording has been virtually flawless as far as equipment goes. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is new to recording or is thinking of upgrading from a stereo output board. This mixer really does the job! I can’t post the link, but just search this: Currently my band is recording on our own makeshift studio using this and a laptop well there is also the microphones, in any case works great with any usb2 interface cubase LE5 is really good to do that multy tracking.
Great for drum recording. The volume coming in seems to be low at first but in post production works great! I tell you get some foam sound proof a room get your band together that is all you need. There’s nothing to complain about. The thing is wonderful.
Lije was up and running in minutes on Windows. I am in no want of inputs. You can record from the 8 inputs or the global mix, without mixing in what’s coming in from your DAW, or with if you like. You can use it to record to tape and then get that into the DAW, which is part of why I got the mixer.
The global send FX are primarily of the stereo-widening variety, are simple to use and sound good. If you are new to mixers and home audio production, be sure you have enough cables for everything. If anything bad comes up in my adventures with it, I’ll be sure to update my alesos. But so far, I’m really impressed.
She really loves this easy to use mixer for recording her piano sessions. Registering the Cubase 5 LE software was really difficult and still waiting for access to get a license number. We’re using Audacity in the meantime. On the Windows 7 platform the Alesis driver only show two channels in Audacity which we hope will be remedied when the Cubase registration process finally gets completed. Audacity works great on OS X, however. I used this to reocrd our band for gigs and practices.
It works really well with Audacity on my Macbook Pro, I can steam 8 separate tracks to Audacity Cons – output volume is rather low so I need to use the amplify effect on in audacity, on each track separately, to get a decent volume from my recording. Unless you are already experienced with Cubase, don’t expect to unbox this unit and start recording right away. No instructions were provided for configuring Cubase for the Alesis and it took me an engineer about two hours of reading through the Cubase documentation and watching online, 3rd party tutorials to get recording and playback to work.
I still haven’t gotten it to work in Garageband. Other than the initial headache of configuring the device, I am pleased with the unit. A lot less hiss than my old MultiMix 4. But Alesis should have provided a simple quickstart guide to hand-hold us novices from unboxing through our first recording. Qlesis is seemless,clean,just so glad I went with this. Would recommend it to anybody doing small home projects The representative of Alesis just finanlized this issue saying that they cannot.
The representative of Alesis told me that it was only me who asked to update its software in order to support 10 channels in non-multi-channel supporting WDM based programs as it is advertised in its own homepage. Since it is uncommon to implement only one customer’s request, It will not happen for Alesis to implement my request. So it is finalized. It depends on the program. All those programs support multi-channels, so the user can select channels in the program.
However, it is totally different story in WDM driver based programs. They do not support multi-channels. As the result, a user cannot select channels that the user wants to use.
In WDM mode, the user only can use first two channels among 10 channels. Mic and Line 1 Mic and Line manul Mic and Line 3 Mxnual and Line 4 Main Mix L As you see, the first two channels are Mic 1 and Mic 2 channels. Those two channels are the only channels that you can use in WDM mode except Sonar. The problem is that the majority of recording programs in WDM world do not support multi-channels ilne reality. Let me talk about the difference between Sound Card and Audio Interface.
Sound Card is the basic device which makes sount input and output from and to mxnual computer with some other optional features such as 3D effects.
Usually Sound Card has stereo inputs and 5. Audio Interface is an advanced device providing more good quality and options in inputs and outputs. Usually Audio Interfaces has more than 2 inputs alfsis outputs.

Alesis Multimix 8 USB 2. However, Alesis needs to notice that whether they intended or not, they are breaking their boundary from professional mixing device to Sound Card area releasing Multimix series.
There should be people who select Alesis mixer after comparing Alesis multimix series and Sound Blaster slesis. Here is a question popped up. What would be aldsis standard for general purposed recording programs? Would it be Sound Card? Or would it be Audio Interface? Definitely Sound Card is the standard.

This is the reason that the majority of WDM driver based programs do not support multi-channels. The input channel of Sound Card is stereo. General recording programs do mltimix need to support multi-channels since their target device is Sound Card.
This is why a user cannot choose channels in general purposed WDM driver based programs. In order for a user to choose input channel in WDM driver mode, Alesis should provide a way for that. This unit is really well made unit for this purpose. The professional or amateur musicians and audio engineers would want to use it for music recording.
But I am trying to use it different than its original purpose.
