The Live 802 8-Channel/2-Bus Mixer with DSP and USB from Alto is a professional 8-channel, 2-bus mixer equipped with flexible routing options and onboard DSP tools. It features 5 balanced XLR inputs with switchable phantom power, 3-band EQs for additional tonal shaping, two aux sends per-channel for external effects and monitoring, and a 9-band graphic EQ for main or monitor outputs. A headphone jack with an independent level control enables additional monitoring and mixing. The Live 802 features 60mm faders with LED meters and designed to provide precise control and visual feedback for accurate, hands-on mixing.
Each microphone channel is outfitted with a high-headroom low-noise DNA microphone preamp. Live 802's high headroom results in cleaner mixes, and a purer signal path. The onboard analog compression (channels 1-2) helps control dynamics and gel instruments together for a cohesive, defined mix.
You can record your mix directly to a Mac or PC with a single USB connection via the built-in USB port. The USB port enables you to convert two channels of 24-bit audio (Main Mix or Sub Mix 1/2) directly to a computer. Record live performances, band practices, theater performances, speaking events, and other live sound event onto your computer for additional editing, mixing, and post-production. The USB connection is bi-directional, enabling sound files stored on your computer to be streamed to and played through the Live 802.
The Live 802 comes with built-in 24-bit Alesis effects. You can select from 100 DSP effects that give you additional creative control in any mixing environment. Choose from room and space delays, small and large hall acoustics, plate and spring reverbs, flangers, choruses, and more. The effects presets make it easy to dial in your required sound or experiment with different effect settings. This mixer features color coding for each section of the mixer, and provides brightly colored knobs so you can quickly and easily find what you need to adjust while in poor-visibility environments. The blue, green, red, yellow and white pots are easy to identify in low lighting. The LED indicators for output level, peak, and phantom power also assist in making sure that you have multiple visual cues that reflect everything you're hearing.
The Live 802 mixer is designed for use in small/mid-sized PA systems, gymnasiums, bars, restaurants, clubs, mobile DJ systems, presentations, weddings, and similar venues.
