Great Mixer, Easy To Use!


I purchased this unit because my Behringer X1204USB that I only had for less than 2 years started giving me fits. It was making zapping noises intermittently and could no longer be trusted for live gigs. I generally do solo jazz, fingerstyle guitar and work with my wife in a duo performing at Senior Facilities for music therapy. Being on a budget, my Sam Ash rep pointed me to the Alesis. I use two mics, two acoustic guitars and an electric. The Alesis has a guitar switch for guitars without a pre-amp and is a great feature. I would suggest pressing the low cut button when using electric as it sounds a bit muddy when not activated. The USB port like the Behringer works like a charm when using tracks off a laptop. I also like that I can run 1/4" cables (one to my Fishman stick and another to my monitor) and have complete control by using separate knobs. The knobs work much better than sliders which tend to get a lot of static over time. The only drawback is that the Behringer on board effect are much richer than the Alesis. Plus you have to really pump up the master effects to get any richness. I have not used it for home recording but have (after much effort) installed the Cubase LE5 software. Be forewarned: downloading the elicense procedure is a pain in the butt! Overall, very pleased with the bang for the buck for $149.

Easy to use and ready to roll


Works great. I was up and running in minutes, recording to my computer via USB. The instructions in the box for configuring windows 7 were perfect. Super easy to use. Only drawback is no XLR out. Otherwise pretty good product for the price.

Compared this to the newer 2.0 version and my needs. Looking to merge (4) keyboards and control mix at fingertips vs. reaching around a lot. Also doubles as portable mixer for small gig set-up (all instruments). If you are comparing against the 2.0 and the "10 channel individaul" send to computer, then only upgrade if you are actually doing a lot of recording (band) live and need to split mix later. For me, the issue was mixing my keyboard setup closer at hand and recording as track at a time, which renders this mixer board very adequate...and a hundred plus bucks cheaper. How often are you really going to mix down live? Most do it from scratch in the no need for the newer 2.0 in most cases. This is a good deal....very good sound and my KB300's (2) can be turned down a bit...less noise. Don't really care about the effects though. All in all-good concept mixer/USB interface at a great price point

Beast. For sure.


I found this product to be easy and simple to use. Not only was it a great experiance for my band, but it helped promote alot of extra sounds and effects. This was so simple, I bet a Baby could do it. Cheesy, but it's true.
