Alto LIVE 164

Alto LIVE 164 16-Channel / 4-Bus Mixer with Dynamic Control, Alesis DSP, and USB
Live Series mixers are united by their modern look, low-profile design, DNATM preamps, extensive EQ, built-in compression, Alesis DSP effects, and USB audio/connectivity. The panel graphics are clear and easy to understand. Each channel is equipped with its own 3-band EQ—the 4-bus models add sweepable mids—and there is a 9-band graphic EQ that can be applied to the main or monitor mix. The Alesis DSP section provides 16 premium effects. Each offers 16 variations, for a total of 256 ready-to-use effects. Microphone inputs (XLR) are equipped with DNATM preamps. Switchable phantom power allows for the use of any type of microphone. Select mic channels offer dynamic compression, each with individual control. Mono channels feature an XLR input, balanced 1/4" line input, and a TRS insert jack. Each mono channel offers a low-cut filter, gain control, a three-band EQ, a pan knob, mute switch, and a 60mm smooth-travelling fader. Stereo channels trade the insert jack for a second balanced 1/4" 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 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. A footswitch jack toggles 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.

Good Live Mixer

A good on the whole live mixer, I do prefer its Yamaha competitor however but thats purely through loyalty to Yahama. I would still buy one as they do a really good job.
