The Alesis Multimix-12FW is a 12 input mixer with internal effects processor and FireWire connection for direct integration with computer based workstations. The mixer is suitable for professional or project level recording and sound reinforcement. The mixer features 4-mono inputs and 4-stereo via balanced 1/4" TRS Phone inputs. ALT 3/4 outputs provide alternate signal routing to recorders, monitors etc. The Multimix-16USB features 4-microphone inputs with up to 50dB of preamp gain and Phantom Power (global switched). An Internal digital effects processor provides 100 preset effects and an easy to read display. Among the included effects are a variety of reverbs, delays, chorus effects and more.

Every channel features a 3-band EQ and 2 aux sends (switchable). PFL/Solo in place switches isolate signal on that channel with a single push of a button. Mute switches are featured on every input channel. The Mute switch disables the signal on a channel while simultaneously routing the signal to the ALT 3/4 output bus. Independent Main Mix and Alt 3/4 levels allow users to separately control the levels of the Multimix's two stereo buses.

FireWire Connection

Integrated FireWire I/O allows direct digital integration with any Windows or Mac OS application.
