Multimix 8 USB

Well, I got a multimix 8 usb, I have 2 keyboards hooked up to it and a studio condenser microphone. I recorded a couple tracks. My buddy snooped around in a couple options on the program. Now my lap top will only sense just a little bit of activity, however, when I try to record, I play it back and I hear nothing what so ever. The activity it recieves is not even enough to a make a peep. I've brought it up to the store clerk that sold it to me. He snooped around and couldnt figure it out. So this is my next resort. Please help me. I need to record. P.S I made sure the mixer was on before the program was started.

Clip light on Multimix 12 Firewire always on

I have just gotten the same problem. In my case it worked fine for almost three years and one today I turned it on and this loud humming noise + the red clip light always on appeared. When I hit solo button on channels 9-16 the humming disappeares but the light would not go away. With solo on humming get louder on the mic channels individually (1-8). I am puzzled... No solution so far

Alesis Multimix 8 USB won't be recognized

There are NO drivers to be installed for this device. Plug in the usb to the device, and the PC once the PC is running turn on the mixer. XP should inform you that a USB Audio Device has been found & installed. Any software you use for rec'ing will let you choose what sound device to use, select USB Audio Codec.

Problem hearing a new recording after I press '2trk ito mix button?


You need tro set up the monitoring capability in your recording software under either hardware profiles or audio settings. All "good" recording software has this monitoring capability. There's another thing - I got rid of my Multimix 8 USB, because it wasn't allowing me to monitor as I recorded new tracks. At first it did, then about a year into using it, this function stopped, and when I investigated further, it was coming up as a single duplex sound card in my hardware profiles in Windows XP. It is as if that functionality of the soundcard component had burned out. Maybe on the circuit board...

I now have a gina Echo that I bought off eBay, and it was the best thing I ever bought. It is a hard card - no latency! Full monitoring! 24 bit recording! A hard card with a breakout box instead of USB! My recordings have never sounded better. The best thing about it is that I sold my ALesis adn was able to by the gina and have money left over - they are out of production (stupidly) and can still be purchased for anywhere between $50.00 - $80.00

You may or may not have a problem with your mixer - check your software settings first. If that isn't the problem, eBay is open 24 hours...

Delayed vocal

If you're recording to an audio program on your computer (e.g., Cubase), there typically is a slight delay in the tracks you record with the first one (such as a slight delay in the vocal when layering over the guitar track). ou can change the delay in the "Preferences" for the audio card in your computer or you can remove the delay manually.. I do the latter. I record using the Audacity 1.3.3. program on a Mac G4. I find that get a 0.3 second delay in tracks layered onto the first track. So, after I record a track, I cut the first 0.3 seconds froom the beginning of the track (I give myself at least 10 seconds of "dead air" at the start. and keep playing the tracks until they're synchronized. Takes a good ear, but really is the best way to synchronize the tracks.
