Alesis introduces MultiMix 10 Wireless & MultiMix 16 USB FX mixers

Related: , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 25, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Alesis has announced MultiMix 10 Wireless and MultiMix 16 USB FX, two new models to its MultiMix Series of live and recording mixers.

As the name suggests, the MultiMix 10 Wireless now features Bluetooth capabilities, and the MultiMix 16 USB FX now offers onboard effects.

“These mixers bring exciting new features to our popular MultiMix lineup,” says Alesis Project Manager Walter Skorupski. “We are very pleased to add these models to the mix.”

Alesis MultiMix 10 Wireless

The MultiMix 10 Wireless is a 10-channel, rack-mount mixer that is well suited to smaller clubs and venues, houses of worship, and traveling systems. Channels 1-4 are mono and offer both XLR mic inputs (selectable phantom power is provided) and balanced 1/4″ inputs. TRS inserts are also provided. Channels 5/6 and 7/8 are stereo-paired channels, offering left and right balanced 1/4″ ins. Channels 7/8 also offer a pair of stereo RCA inputs. Configured in stereo, Channels 9/10 are dedicated to receiving a stereo audio signal from any Bluetooth-enabled device. Simple, single-button front-panel pairing makes it easy. Each channel offers a peak LED, trim knob, 2-band EQ, pre and post sends, a pan knob, and a smooth-travelling 60mm fader.

On the back panel, the MultiMix 10 Wireless features 1/4″ aux sends and 1/4″ balanced stereo returns. The main stereo outs are 1/4″ balanced, and an additional set of 1/4″ stereo monitor outs are provided. Up on the front panel, the Master section includes additional easy-access XLR+1/4″ combo inputs for Channels 1 and 2 that override the respective rear inputs, making it easy to temporarily connect a microphone or other sound source without removing the mixer from the rack. An 1/8″ jack allows a non-Bluetooth source to access Channel 9. Located alongside the master fader, the twin 10-stage LED meters feature red peak indicators. A dedicated headphone jack is provided; the level is controlled by the monitor/phones knob. A very handy 1/8″ output provides the main mix directly from the front panel.

Alesis MultiMix 16 USD FX

The new MultiMix 16 USB FX performs double-duty as a versatile live and recording mixer and as a USB audio (16-bit, 44.1 or 48 kHz) interface for computer-based recording, even doing both at the same time. This class-compliant connection provides true plug-and-play connectivity with the computer and nearly any recording software. The versatility of the MultiMix 16 USB FX is ideal for the performing musician with a home or project studio.

The onboard processor (FX) offers 8 effect types, with individual sends on each channel. Eight mono channels include both 1/4″ and XLR inputs, with selectable phantom power. Four stereo-paired channels feature 1/4″ inputs. A direct guitar-level input is available on Channel 8. Each channel strip includes a multi-band EQ, sends, pan, and level control. Multi-stage LED metering, dedicated main and headphone outputs with individual levels, and two-track RCA tape ins and outs complete this multi-use mixer. Cubase LE6 is included.

Alesis will be exhibiting at Booth 6700 at the 2013 Winter NAMM show, January 24-27 in Anaheim, California.

Steinberg Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7 now shipping

Steinberg has released Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7, two new versions of the highly acclaimed Cubase music production system for recording, editing, mixing and producing music to the highest standards.

Steinberg Cubase 7 / Cubase Artist 7

The new mixing facilities feature the MixConsole including full-screen mode and scalability plus Channel Zones, A/B comparison, global bypass on effects and plug-in search for a high level of user customization. The newly developed channel strip comes with several filters, noise gate, the four-band StudioEQ, three compressors, a spectrum analyzer, tube/tape saturation, a brickwall limiter and maximize. The Channel Settings window is redesigned to provide easy access to all channel parameters, such as input metering and routing assignments, alongside the Remote Control Editor for easy mapping of plug-in parameters to external controllers. Also available in Cubase 7 are Voxengo’s CurveEQ, EBU R128 standard compliant loudness metering and the latest version of MixConvert.

Other musical highlights in Cubase 7 are Chord Track, a dedicated track for identifying the music’s harmony structure and providing chord and scale information to both MIDI and audio tracks processed with VariAudio, and these in return automatically follow any harmonic adjustments in Chord Track. VariAudio is exclusively available in Cubase and now runs hand in hand with Chord Track for editing multiple parts within a single editor and harmonizing lead vocals in choral arrangements, while Chord Assistant bridges chords and generates harmonic chord progressions. Hermode tuning is included in both Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7. Newly introduced samples, loops and presets round out the extensive spectrum of sounds.

More features and enhancements focus around the performance of Cubase. ASIO-Guard improves stability and prevents data dropouts, while the-start mode disables user preferences temporarily. Finding tracks and channels in large projects is facilitated through the keyword-oriented search engine. MemZap stores positions and zoom factors within the project at any particular time. The Steinberg Hub comprises an enhanced Project Assistant plus additional information services, such as news and a regularly updated list of video tutorials. For peer-to-peer collaboration in real time, VST Connect SE features talkback and chat functionality as well as video and audio streaming over the Internet.

The Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7 are available to purchase for the suggested retail price of 599 EUR / 299 EUR respectively. Prices including German VAT. Various boxed and downloadable updates and upgrades are also available from resellers and through the Steinberg Online Shop.

Customers who have activated Cubase 6.5 and Cubase Artist 6.5 since October 25, 2012, are eligible for a free, downloadable Grace Period update to the latest version.

9 Soundware releases 1.316 Seconds channel strip settings for Sculpture

Titled after the Guinness World Record for the shortest song ever recorded (“You Suffer” by Napalm Death), 1.316 Seconds by 9 Soundware is a collection of Sculpture-based Channel Strip setting files for Apple Logic Pro inspired by extreme music.

9Soundware 1.316 Seconds

Combining the string/exciter paradigm of Sculpture with the signal-contorting resources of Logic Pro, the sound set is composed of simulations and abstractions of instrumentation associated with stupendously aggressive, challenging works.

1.316 Seconds is composed of 5 categories, “Down-tuned Guitar”, “Down-tuned Bass”, “Blast Beat”, “Death Growl”, and “Microsong”, each of which consists of 10 Channel Strip settings. Featuring .cst files designed to simulate machine gun-like mechanical riffs, as well as sustained chords, central to the sound set is “Down-tuned Guitar”. When sequenced with consecutive fifths and parallel octaves, using palm mute and sustaining sounds in conjunction, these Channel Strip settings allow for mockups of simple phrases. “Down-tuned Bass” is based on the timbres of grotesquely distorted, droning bass guitars. Similarly, parallel octaves allow for the balance between tonality and cacophony when using these .cst files. The “Blast Beat” Channel Strip settings are abstractions of the blistering noise associated with the drumming technique. While the sound design behind this category is largely conceptual (; not emblematic of drum kits), snare drums can be modeled by layering multiple Channel Strip settings (in particular Blast Beat 08.cst and Down-tuned Bass 09.cst). Comparably nonfigurative, the “Death Growl” noise instruments impressionistically portray guttural vocals. These .cst files are designed for performance in tandem with the modulation wheel. Finally, the “Microsong” Channel Strip settings produce bursts of rhythmic and randomly shifting timbres driven by LFO modulation.

1.316 Seconds is available to purchase for $14.99 USD.
