Alesis Multimix 8 USB and Windows 7?

I am inerested in buying an Alesis Multimix 8 USB. I need a mixing console as well so this would be a good fit. My computer is windows 7. Does anyone have any experience with this mixer and Windows 7? Does it work?

If you mean “will Audacity as shipped record multiple channels from it?” the answer appears to be “no”, according to the reports we have:

This is assuming you don’t want to compile Audacity with ASIO support which would probably make multi-channel recording work.

As that Mixer is reported to record multi-channel into Audacity on Windows XP, you could perhaps try Windows XP mode, though it might have higher latencies or even not record properly.

Anyone got a Windows 7 recommendation using USB? Have you searched the Forum?


I was just looking to bring in one stereo mix from the Alesis Multimix 8 USB. I would have to upgrade to the 2.0 model to bring in all the channels separately. I was just trying to see if anyone was having problems using an Alesis Multimix 8 (non 2.0 version) with Windows 7.
