Alesis has introduced the iMultiMix 8 USB, an 8-channel all-in-one mixer with USB interface and direct-to-iPod recording. The iMultiMix features a top-mounting iPod dock and will record to any third through fifth generation iPod. The mixer also offers 8 analog inputs, 100 28-Bit effects, phantom power, and 2 switchable mic/line/guitar inputs. The iMultiMix is scheduled to ship in Q3 2007 for $499.
“Unique to its class, the iMultiMix 8 USB is the world’s first mobile recording mixer with iPod transport controls and a control wheel built right into the surface for complete control of the iPod while it is being docked in the mixer,” says Alesis. “Home studios, musicians, podcasters and houses of worship can use the versatile direct-to-iPod recording feature for convenient transfer into iTunes upon connection to a computer.”
