The gray Alias 8 - USB Mixdown Controller by Livid Instruments keeps it simple, so that you can focus on your mix. Its eight "channel strips" of MIDI-based controllers give you a 30mm fader, two knobs and two buttons each. A dual-function encoder changes the MIDI channel, instantly extending Alias' reach with up to 15 MIDI channels, 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.
The Alias 8 is 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.
Made of aluminum, the Alias 8 fits nicely in your laptop bag with its 1.6" height, including feet and buttons. The Alias 8 also has two expansion jacks for Livid's XPC line of controllers, allowing the addition of up to 16 more analog controls. So, whether you just need to control a mixdown, latch onto some plugins, or setup some sliders and knobs to always do "just one thing," the Alias 8 can help.
