Alesis has introduced its iMultiMix 9R rack-mountable professional mixer and audio player with integrated iPod Dock. The 9R is designed for studios and live venues, and features five high-gain mic preamps, two stereo line inputs, 48V phantom power, auxiliary sends and returns, 3-band per channel EQ with high/low shelving and band pass/reject, and composite video output. Alesis Product Manager Jim Norman said, “Our research showed that most of our customers own iPods, and wanted a way to utilize them for various installation situations such as churches, clubs and conference rooms. The iMultiMix 9R is the perfect way to integrate iPod playback and pro-quality mixing in a studio environment.” The Alesis iMultiMix 9R will be available in late 2007 for $399.
