Cumberland, RI, USA â€“â€“ September 17, 2014. Alto Professional (altoprofessional.com), the source for live performance reinforcement, announces availability of their Live Series analog mixers. Live Series mixers are united by their modern look, low-profile design, low-noise, high-headroom DNA preamps, extensive EQ, built-in compression, Alesis DSP effects, and USB audio/connectivity. These new slim-line mixers are available in four configurations:
- Live 802: 8-Channel, 2-Bus
- Live 1202: 12-Channel, 2-Bus
- Live 1604: 16-Channel, 4-Bus
- Live 2404: 24-Channel, 4-Bus
Designed with a user-friendly format, Live Series mixers allow anyone to achieve a perfect mix â€“
from the live sound novice to the experienced sound engineer. Each XLR microphone channel
is equipped with high-headroom, ultra-low-noise DNA preamps for striking clarity and dynamic
range. Switchable phantom power allows for the use of dynamic or condenser microphones.
Select mic channels offer analog dynamic compression, each with an individual control knob.
Each channel features its own 3-band EQâ€”the 4-bus models add sweepable midsâ€”and there
is a 9-band graphic EQ that can be applied to the main or monitor mix. Live Series mixers
feature high-quality Alesis DSP effects providing additional creative control in any mixing
environment. The Alesis DSP section provides 10 premium effects; each offers 10 variations, for
a total of 100 ready-to use effects.
Mono channels feature an XLR input, balanced Â¼-inch line input, and a TRS insert jack. Each
mono channel offers a low-cut filter, gain control, three-band EQ, pan knob, mute switch, and a
60mm smooth-travelling fader. Stereo channels trade the insert jack for a second balanced Â¼-
inch input. In addition to having two more send knobs, 4-bus models include a pre/post fader
switch for the first two sends.
Designed for modern music making, these new Live Series mixers feature USB audio in and
out. This 24-bit USB audio feature enables the stereo main or monitor mix to be recorded to a
computer, or allows for the playback from a laptop or other USB audio source controlled by a
dedicated level knob. Live Series mixers are equipped with an onboard USB jack to power lamps or charge mobile devices. A footswitch can be used to toggle the effects on and off. LED 12-step metering and an easy-access headphone out with independent level control help keep the mix under control.
â€œOur Live Series mixers are the highest-featured, best-sounding mixers in their class,â€ noted
Dustin Plumb, Product Manager, Alto Professional. â€œOur U.S. engineering team went to great
lengths to ensure that every detail was designed to meet or exceed Alto Professional standards
and provide the end-user an intuitive and transparent mixing experience. From the sonic
nuance of the all-new low-noise, high-headroom DNA microphone preamps, to the dynamic
performance of the onboard compressors, our all-new Live Series mixers give upcoming
musicians and seasoned pros the sound they desire and the quality they deserve.â€
