Alesis' industrial-grade mixer features iPod video playback in a rack-mount configuration
|Announced in July 2007, the Alesis iMultiMix 9R professional mixer and audio player feauring an integrated iPod dock and video output was showcased at PLASA 07 in London. The Alesis iMultiMix 9R is designed for studios and live venues where rack-based audio gear is common. “This product represents the second in a new wave of pro-grade mixers that utilize the versatility of Apple’s iPod as a playback device.” says Alesis Product Manager Jim Norman. “Our research showed that most of our customers own iPods, and wanted a way to utilize them for various installation situations such as churches, clubs and conference rooms. The iMultiMix 9R is the perfect way to integrate iPod playback and pro-quality mixing in a studio environment.”|
The iMultiMix 9R features 5 high-gain mic preamps, 2 stereo line inputs (one switchable from an external source or the installed iPod), 48V phantom power, aux sends and returns, and 2-band per channel EQ with high/low shelving and band pass/reject.
Those using a newer iPod with video playback can display iPod video through their projector or TV by using the iMultiMix 9R’s composite video output. Video output makes the iMultiMix 9R a good choice for use at venues with video projection or flat panel TVs. The iMultiMix 9R mixer delivers audio playback from 2nd through 5th generation iPods. You can use the iPod as a backing track for solo or band performances, while mixing sound sources all in one compact, convenient place..
