  • Alesis Alesis MULTIMIX 8 or IO 14

    Hi guys,

    My home studio is coming along a treat, the guitarist has just bought Amplitube for use on the pc so now I have a dilemma - I want a firewire unit that will give me zero latency for the drums and the other instruments that I want to record. I'm torn between the Alesis MULTIMIX 8 FIREWIRE 8 channel mixer or the Alesis IO 14 - both ships with Cubase LE, which is perfect. They both cost the same but I'm not sure which will give the most versatility in the studio. I want whichever one I go for to give me zero latency on the instruments and hi impedance for the guitars. I understand that 1MOHM is the industry standard and ideal and I think I read somewhere that the Alesis IO 14 gives you that.

    What do you fellas think, or is there an even better unit at the same sort of price ($400) out there?

      Any suggestions on alternative IO units or is the Alesis IO 14 pretty decent for the price?

          Have you looked at the M-Audio products? Not sure if they would have what you are looking for but might be worth a look.

            Thanks for that.

            I've decided to go for the presonus firebox - seems to have all I need, and comes bundled with Cubase LE. Also has 1 MOHM impedance, and tends to be a favourite on here with most people.
