Alesis music equipment has come out with some very solid studio monitors — their Elevate 6 series. This is an upgrade from their original Elevate 5 studio monitors which received many positive reviews around the net. In the 6 series you are given the choice between either the active or passive studio monitor. The main difference between the two is the obvious passive vs. active comparison in which the active have a built-in amplifier, (we typically recommend for a studio, regardless of home or professional, unless you want to purchase your own separate amplifier that matches up with it’s compliance). This one made our list in our top 10 best studio monitor speakers article. Let’s see more information.
Alesis instruments has come out with a brand new mixer, the MultiMix 4 FX Audio Interface, featuring some powerful capabilities and effects to help supplement and improve home or some professional studios. A relatively standard mixer, we love the overall build and extra spunk this one provides. It’s an upgrade to their popular MultiMix 4 Four-Channel Mixer that we saw receive a lot of positive reviews since it’s release in the early 2000’s. Now they’ve created a better machine with some built-in effects for a pretty low cost, at the same time not changing too much of what we’ve all enjoyed in the original model.
Alesis music gear turned some heads when they announced their new release of VI MIDI keyboard controllers. This particular model is the bigger brother of the Alesis V61 MIDI keyboard which is very solid but has less drum pads and a few other key components (hence the price). This time around they’ve added 16 pads as well as some other cool capabilities to make a run at the more advanced MIDI keyboard market. As we saw in the Alesis VI25 and VI49 controller review, the prices of these pieces of machinery out-duel some of the more popular models on the market. Let’s check out the main features on this one.
Alesis music instruments has been getting a bit of buzz with their release of the new VI series of MIDI keyboard controllers. Stated by some around the music equipment world to rival the Akai MPKII series, these are a bit cheaper in terms of price and pack most of the same features. We saw in our VI25 MIDI keyboard review that it was pretty worth it, especially with 16 pads as opposed to Akai’s 8. So what’s the deal here? Let’s take a look at the VI49.
Alesis equipment has been a huge player in the game of musical instruments for quite some time now. I’ve always been especially fond of the stability of their gear. The Elevate 5 studio monitor speakers are very solid in terms of bang-for-your-buck price as well as some solid features and specs. This pair of speakers has received some great reviews around the net, so let’s check out what they’re made of.
