Alesis announces that its iMultiMix 16 USB mixer with professional mixing and direct-to-iPod recording is now available.
iMultiMix 16 USB is the second entry in a new class of iPod mixers that started with the popular iMultiMix 8 USB. iMultiMix 16 USB features a Universal Dock for iPod that enables recording directly to any iPod Classic, 5th generation (video) and 2nd or 3rd generation iPod nano.
The mobile recording mixer has iPod transport controls and a control wheel built into the surface for complete control of the iPod while it is docked in the mixer. For clean live recordings of nearly any performance, including home studios, musicians, podcasters and houses of worship, iMultiMix 16 USB is the ideal solution.
The USB connection delivers convenient transfer of tracks into iTunes upon connection to a computer. Files recorded into the iPod are CD quality, 16-bit, 44.1kHz WAV files.
Mac and PC recording engineers can connect iMultiMix 16 USB using USB for direct-to-computer recording. In addition to its computer connectivity, iMultiMix 16 USB offers eight analog inputs, 100 digital, 28-bit effects, phantom power and two switchable mic/line/guitar inputs.
Steinberg Cubase LE 4 and Ableton Live Lite 7 recording and performance software are included, completing the total-studio package.
“iMultiMix 16 USB is supremely versatile,” said Jim Norman, Product Manager, Alesis. “You can record any source in a studio, stage or rehearsal-room environment, add the onboard effects and then route your mix out to a PA, computer, hardware recorder, iPod or combinations thereof.”
iMultiMix 16 USB is available from pro audio and musical instrument retailers. It has an MSRP of $799.99 and a street price of $599.99.
