    Really love this mixer so far. I like how I can put backing tracks onto my ipod. This allows me to gig without my computer. I do, however, wish this thing had XLR output for the monitors, but what can you expect for the price? The effects are okay, and it is very easy to operate the iPod as it has controls for it right on the mixer. Definitely a good buy for a small performing act such as myself.

    This product (Alesis iMultimix 8) was promoted as a perfect recording device for pairing with the Apple iPod. I used two brand new iPods into the device and couldn't get rid of the high pitched whine in the background. i asked my friend to try his iPod and we got the same result. we ended up using another separate device to record and couldn't take advantage of the iPod feature. Trying to get a hold of customer support at Alesis was a bigger joke that the iMultimix8!!. What a waste of time and money.

        I use this mixer with a recording program on my laptop. as far as EQ goes and soundquality it definitely improves the sound of my music, it all works pretty simply. the one downside is that it is incompatible with the iphone on the ipod dock
        and possibly incompatible with any apple product

            I like the way I can take it places because I do on the road sound recording. I went from careing 5 boxs to just 2. I like the way I can record to computer with makes it easy and I take my labtop to record the sound. I also feel it has a very good sound that is made by this mixer. I am also glade that I can still use my wireless mixs for it. As i was looking for a sound baord that i could take this one came across my path. and i have told some frends of mine who are looking into it.there is nothing wrong that i see yet.

                    It is a bit tricky to get your levels right at first, but once you get practicing and get going, this mixer/recorder is A BLAST to work with... reminds me a bit of using the old 4 track tascams... except you are only recording to 2 tracks, with no track bouncing, so it is even more challenging!

                    It does what it says in the product description, no more, no less... so it is not ideal for all, but I needed a quick way to get ideas down in the studio that I could listen to elsewhere and it fits the bill for that.

                      This mixer allows much flexibility in designing your signal path. Works great for streaming audio to the internet while taking live calls.

                        So I've had this for two weeks and I'm still pretty excited. I give it 5 stars but I think 4.5 is probably more appropricate. If your reading this I assume your thinking, "8 channel mixer, 4 mic inputs, effects, ipod RECording...is it worh the [$]? I think absolutely YES! I use it to sum all my equipment in my music room...computer (stereo), POD (stereo), amp with 2 mics, bass guitar direct, ipod, CD player...you get the picture. Cut to the chase, the effects are good (better than other Alesis effects I have had), recording to iPOD very cool (every mixer should have this option or something like it). Be sure to read the chart to see which IPODs work. Feature rich for such a tiny think (but not too tiny). The book is poor and assumes you know your way around a mixer and that you are willing to play around. It's worth your $$...

                          -so i use this for alot of different reason i use it for my little recording booth, i carry it around (never know when something might pop in my head i want to put it into action) i use it for jam session
                          cause i know if you've ever had a jam session that theres always that session you wish you would of recorded
                          - everything about it is great and you dont have to be a master mind to use it, i love the ipod dock! ive should it to so many people and they cant get enough of it, and i know like 4 people that want one now, its a perfect size to just put in a bag and take around with you
                          -and i really cant say anything wrong with it ive used it alot and havnt come to any problems yet
                          -all in all great product you should really get one if you on the move alot, or your just starting out

                            It is great as a mixer when you just want to get a recording of the main mix. I was thinking that each track could be recorded separately, but that is not the case.
                            Nice effects, also. The iPod hookup works flawlessly!!

                              I am using this product to record my band.

                              I love that I am able to record straigh into the iPOD because then i am able to take the recording with me anywhere.

                              No great for multi-track, but the IPOD recording function is very useful.
