Alesis MultiMix 8USB Mixer

Alesis Multimix 8USB

These notes are also applicable to the Alesis Multimix 12USB and 16USB mixers.


Simplest thing that could possibly work.

Use the ¼ inch phone jack (Tip-Sleeve) outputs to the PS1 Powerstand, Channels 1 or 2 if you want to use the presets and the Tone and Level Controls on the R1 Remote


the PS1 Powerstand, Channels 3 or 4 if you prefer to leave Channels 1 and 2 open for other inputs.

Specifically see the outputs marked with green in the image at the bottom of this page.


You can use TS (Tip Sleeve) unbalanced cables, or TRS (Tip Ring Sleeve) balanced cables, but since the ¼ inch phone connections at the Bose Classic and Model I Power Stand are unbalanced there is no particular benefit using balanced cables.

¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced)

Tip-Sleeve to Tip-Sleeve

This should work fine.

¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced)

Tip-Ring-Sleeve to Tip-Sleeve

This should work fine.

¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced) to ¼ Inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve (balanced)

Tip-Ring-Sleeve to Tip-Ring-Sleeve

This should also work, but likely no better than a simple ¼ Inch Tip-Sleeve to Tip-Sleeve cable. This is because the ¼ Inch input on the Bose System is Tip-Sleeve (unbalanced) anyway.
