I Googled this issue, and it seems to be a common problem, especially on desktop computers.

Too many compact mixers today focus on features for two or four channels, and pretty much disregard the rest of the inputs.

It just annoys me to buy a something only to find that one of its main features is completely broken.

We have been using one of these mixers for more than 18 months now with no problems - it is a great starter mixer at a great price. It is the mixer recommended by the authors of the Podcast Solutions book - one of the first books on podcasting.

You should keep in mind the limitations though - while you can have a number of inputs, the USB connection is going to mix everything down into a single track when it outputs. This means that you can't do post production editing on individual tracks. If you want to do this, you should look at the firewire version of this mixer.

Otherwise, it is a great starter box and has been very reliable. Highly recommended.

It seems to work ok unless you need to put the sound through the USB. Once you do so, there's a high pitched noise and hiss that will come through on recordings. I Googled this issue, and it seems to be a common problem, especially on desktop computers. Laptops seem to have better luck. Apparently, there is a grounding issue with the USB. Aside from the high pitched noise and hiss, I couldn't get my bass to sound decent through the mixer. It sounded great on the headphones on the mixer but sounded awful after going through USB despite trying a myriad of settings. I am currently trying to return this.

Many of the jobs I play as a musician are with a two-piece or three-piece band. The main reason I bought this mixer (I bought two, actually, in case one breaks) is because I needed a very compact mixer to mount into a custom-built, half-rack PA system, yet the mixer could not skimp on features.

I needed six channels, and all six needed to have three-band EQ and a monitor send. Too many compact mixers today focus on features for two or four channels, and pretty much disregard the rest of the inputs. And some mixers use volume faders instead of knobs, which requires making the mixer needlessly larger. The Alesis MultiMix is uniquely compact because of how it uses every square inch of space.

I wouldn't call the effects top-grade, but in a live setting they do the job just fine.

I have used this mixer on a weekly basis for about seven or eight years now, and it's still working great.

I bought this on a recommendation from a friend. First I noticed over at his house a high pitched hiss when we were playing around with his setup. I thought at the time maybe this was something in his computer somewhere.

Then I got mine, and lo and behold, the same problem! This hiss only occurs through the USB interface. When I ran it through an M-Audio Mobile Pre USB, no hiss. I Googled this and there are numerous reports of people having this problem. This is not an isolated incident. I don't do many Amazon reviews. I only take the time to do this one to say "buyer beware."

So if you are looking to use the USB interface, consider another product, because you are just going to have to sink another $30-$100 on an audio interface to connect to your PC. If you don't need USB, this seems like a perfectly fine mixer. It just annoys me to buy a something only to find that one of its main features is completely broken.

I have had this recorder for about a year now, it's really great. I enjoyed recording my band, and all of my friends bands. It can connect to a bunch of different programs. I have used Adobe Audition with this, but I love using Logic on the mac with this recorder. Anyway, it's really smooth, it does a fine job recording any vocal, drum, amp, or what have you with the right mics. 5 stars
