    MultiMix 8 USB FX 8-Channel Mixer with Effects and USB Interface is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for the money. Quality is OK This mixer is the most compact, least expensive model with its feature-set from any manufacturer. So that is pretty much going to sell the Multimix 8 USB FX all on its own. Four mono channels, two stereo, two aux busses, USB in/out, and digital effects? For this price? If you can't afford the Allen & Heath Zed10FX (which has the exact same feature-set, but costs more than twice as much), then it's a no-brainer. That said, there are some drawbacks. While the metal case is good and sturdy, the knobs feel flimsy and cheap. I wouldn't expect them to survive a drop to the floor. Sound quality through the mixer is at least up to Behringer's standard, but the digital effects and USB are of marginal quality at best; okay for a live set at a small venue, but even in a home/project studio, I think you'd want to use VST effects and a dedicated audio interface rather than relying on this for recording. Also, the EQ's are weird: sweepable mids on two channels, fixed mid on another two, and no mids at all on the stereo channels. What gives? I'd rather have had three of the same thing, especially since the knobs aren't spaced the same way - very confusing in the dark. The included Cubase LE software is pretty basic, but, well, it's free. Can't complain about that. To sum up: if you need truly professional-grade sound, you'll need to save up a few more bucks. But if you can live with just-okay sound quality, this mixer is the best deal in town.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT small mixer! Well thought out small mixer - The sweep EQ is very usable and works well, centering on the most (possibly) problematic fequencies. Solidly built and with plenty of features, given it very low price. The Reverbs are very usable for playing in clubs, restaurants, etc... Not many choices but the Plates and Halls work well vocals and acoustic guitar. Insert points on CH1-CH2 are a good feature - I wish it also had insters on the MIX OUT L-R - I suppose at this price you have to give something up :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New mixer I really like the mixer. I use it with final cut pro and it does the job. Perfect size and great functions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mixer This is a great mixer for my use. I am using it for different inputs/outputs for film editing with Final Cut Pro. I needed a simple and inexpensive option to allow me to have multiple channels so I can hear FCP sound on one, computer sound on another and options for other outputs. This is was very easy to connect and get the results I need. And it was really inexpensive for it's functionality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little mixer! This mixer is ideal for home studio. The USB to monitor function is great, for recording when you are listen a recorded track. This function routes the sound of your computer through the mixer, to your monitor/headphone system. You can record two tracks at the same time. Maybe will be great to have more options for more simultaneously recording tracks.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be very careful powering on! I had owned an Alesis Multimix 8 USB FX mixer for a few years, and it gradually became dysfunctional. So, I bought a new one (2018), and must warn users of a serious issue. Alesis is now relying on a different power supply (wall wart and internal board) on these newer mixers, and when powered on, the units will pass a very loud spike through the audio path, even if the outputs are fully off! If you power on the mixer while your amps/speakers are on, you could seriously damage them. If there were a power interrupt during a performance, your speakers could blow. I remedied the problem by installing the old power supply board from the old unit, using the old wall wart, which is much more rugged than the newer flimsy one. Hey Alesis, pay attention! Buyer beware!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low price option for good quality. I had the milti mix 4 for a small animation studio that I have at home, so I just bought this for use in a small video production studio at my day job and it really does the job. It has 4 XLR inputs, phantom power, and it was priced so low that I thought it was too good to be true. It's easy to use and gives me an acceptable level of quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking for USB 2.0? Look Elsewhere Overall, love the product. Fairly intuitive, even for someone who knows little about sound (me). I've had it for about a week now and feel pretty comfortable with it. I'm using it primarily for recording purposes, although I will be taking it to a live performance tonight. The effects aren't terribly strong, which makes me think I would have been just as happy with the regular, non-FX board. My biggest issue is that B&H listed this as a USB 2.0 product, but it appears to be only a USB 1.0. However, I haven't had any issues with that so far. Be warned that Cubase LE5 (which comes with it) is a little buggy -- has a hard time recognizing the Alesis board as the sound card, even after adjusting the settings in various locations. I've resorted to using Audacity or other programs, but they've integrated well with the board. I researched MANY products (Tascam 144mkii, M-Audio, Behringer this and that) before deciding this was the best one for under $150 and am happy with the choice I made.
