Norris,

I have the Alesis MultiMix 8 USB, but it is still in the package it was shipped in.  Never opened it, once I found out there were no drivers for Vista 64 bit.

I use a multimix too, and i don't use the drivers.  I just run through the line out of the mixer.

The reverbs and all that are directly on the mixer.

The only reason you would need the drivers are if you want to connect using the USB cable.  I would check the Alesis website to see if they plan to release those drivers in the future.

So it's up to you.... you could use the mixer if you want, but your existing mixer might be doing the same thing already.

And dito for what ray said, you might want to look into a compressor next.  Makes it easier to avoid distorting, clipping the signal.  The Alesis mixer has an auxilary send that you can use to loop out to the compressor as well.

Thanks again Norris (and everyone else) for your input.   I am going to keep the Alesis Multimix because it is definitely an upgrade from what I have.   I didn't realize you could use it for analog output as well as through the USB.  The effects will be fun to play with too.  I like new toys!

Since Alesis produced a driver for Vista 32 bit, hopefully they will come out with one for the 64 bit version sometime soon...either that or I can use my work laptop occasionally which still has Windows XP.

Now I just have to get set up and experiment. Very Happy

Woodsong, I'm just chipping in here with my twopence worth (2 cents if you are American) and I am not up to Norris's level of technical expertise by a long way. Still, I just thought I would mention what I do. I use my Alesis as a mixer (I have inputs taking my electro-acoustic guitar, my electronic piano, and two voice mics (one for where I play guitar from, and one for when I sit at my full size piano). Now, I take the left and right output quarter inch jacks from the Alesis and stuff them into an Edirol UA25 soundbox. It is the Edirol that goes into my laptop's USB socket. And in all this I manage to get an external effects loop on the Alesis for my guitar with a Korg pandoras box.

Now, the point I was going to make to you, Woodsong, is that maybe Edirol (who I think are Roland) make a more modern version of the UA25 that would plug into a 64bit laptop USB? I mean, I've had my UA25 for several years now, so it is probably a bit out of date. I just thought I would mention it as something to maybe think about? And good luck with it all! Tishe is absolutely right - I had a difficult time first getting sorted out, but once it is done, it is done. Oh, and btw, I am using a fairly good Dell PC laptop with Windows Vista (although for about 6 months I got a fairly good sound out of a pretty mediocre mid-range Toshiba). But it isn't (and definitely wasn't) 64 bit

Thank you for your advice Fyrm! I will look into the Edirol USB audio interfaces.
