This 8-channel audio mixer digital audio effects and USB recording interface introduces effects, improved audio specifications, an attractive new look and lower-power consumption.

The MultiMix 8 USB FX gives users a selection of XLR, 1/4-inch and RCA connectors for working with microphones, instruments and line-level audio sources. Condenser microphone users will appreciate the MultiMix 8 USB FX''s switchable phantom-power supply, and guitarists will enjoy a guitar-direct input, enabling them to plug their instruments into the mixer for amp-free recording.

The auxiliary input is assignable to pre- and post-fader points in the audio signal path. Flexible EQ controls include a sweepable parametric on channels 1 and 2.

Musicians and engineers can plug the MultiMix 8 USB FX''s class-compliant USB connection into their Mac or PC without installing any software drivers and enjoy a digital-direct stereo connection with virtually any audio software application. The MultiMix 8 USB FX enables bi-directional stereo signal, so musicians can record the stereo main output into their computer and listen back using the mixer as an interface from software to headphones and monitoring loudspeakers.

New features include enlarged knob-to-knob spacing; new, removable end caps; improved signal-to-noise ratio specifications; and consumes 36-percent less power than its predecessor.

The MultiMix 8 USB FX will be available in July 2010. It has a suggested retail price of $249.99 and an estimated street price of $149.99.
