Remember when controllers were simple? The software didn't do much, and controllers didn't have to. We're as guilty as anyone of making instruments that can do a lot, but sometimes you just need to control a mixdown, latch onto some plugins, or setup some sliders and knobs to always do “just one thing.”
A New Take on a Simple Idea
The Livid Alias 8 delivers the quick and dirty control you need in a durable, compact package with high-quality controls. Perfect as a portable mixer control, the Alias 8 is designed to satisfy the essential needs of every studio or a live rig. Eight "channel strips" of knobs, faders, and buttons, and a full-size master fader easily adapt to traditional mixing. The dual-function encoder makes it easy to change the MIDI channel (up to 15 channels), instantly extending its reach to control more of your software, while always keeping track of any LED feedback on the other channels. The encoder can also be used as a MIDI control for flipping through tracks or adjusting your cue volume - just push the encoder down to change its function.
Like a Rubber Band
The Alias 8 doesn't stop there at stretching out your studio. With two expansion jacks for Livid's XPC line of controllers, you can add up to 16 more analog controls. Grab an XPC and instantly hook up something simple like more pots or faders for your sends and returns. If you really want to shake things up, there’s XPCs with something exotic, like accelerometers or joysticks. With our DIY line of parts and boards, you can get creative with the hardware and add something you built yourself with one of our Omni boards.
Control your Flow
With such a large number of controls available, the Alias 8 is a perfect match for a quick set-up with your software’s MIDI learn function to quickly access the tweaks and freqs in your music, exactly the way you want. The Alias 8 keeps it simple and straightforward so you can adapt it to your workflow, instead of trying to figure out how it works. The special “settings channel” offers some essential configuration options that can be set with simple MIDI CC’s, so if you have something more complex in mind, you can configure the Alias 8 with something as obvious as a MIDI track!
Plastic or Paper? How about . . Aluminum?
Of course, it wouldn't be a Livid controller without controls that feel great, RGB backlit buttons, and a stylish and strong aluminum case. As Livid’s slimmest controller ever (the body is under 1" [2.5 cm] tall) the Alias 8 fits nicely in your laptop bag. Using an all-new extruded aluminum build, the sturdy construction makes for a solid controller that can stand up to the abuses of the road but look great in the studio. With a footprint smaller than a sheet of paper, the Alias 8 won't take up a lot of room on your desk, but remains comfortable to use so you can be confident in your control.
also available in white faceplate LI-ALIAS801/W
