The Alto Professional Live 1202 is a pro 12-channel, 2-bus mixer equipped with the tools you need to create the perfect mix.
With flexible routing options and a multitude of onboard DSP tools, Live 1202 fits the demands of nearly any live performance environment. It features 7 balanced XLR inputs with switchable phantom power, 3-band EQs, 2 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. 60mm faders with LED meters provide precise control and visual feedback for accurate, hands-on mixing.
Live 1202's high headroom results in cleaner mixes, a purer signal path, and loud, punchy audio. Onboard analog compression (channels 1-4) helps control dynamics and gel instruments together for a cohesive, defined mix.
Record your mix directly to a Mac or PC with a single USB connection. Live 1202's built-in USB port allows engineers, producers, and performers to convert two channels of 24-bit audio straight to a computer. Record live performances, band practices, theater performances, speaking events, and any 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 Live 1202.
Select from 100 premium 24-bit Alesis 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. Often, live sound environments are dimly lit and offer poor visibility to the mixing engineer. Live 1202 solves this problem by color coding each section of the mixer and providing brightly colored knobs so you can quickly and easily find what you need to adjust.
Yes! Every Alto Live mixer has a USB connection that carries 2 channels of audio from the MAIN output channel of the mixer to your computer. The USB connection also allows you to send audio from your computer back to the last channel of the mixer.
The built-in compressor is a 3:1 fixed ratio.
The COMP knob controls both the threshold and makeup gain for the compressor.
All Alto Live mixers have an auto-switching power supply built in. As long as you have the proper IEC power cable for the current you intend to use, the mixer will function.
The USB power outlet on the top of all Alto Live mixers is a 5V 1A power supply and may charge your personal devices slower than a proper outlet. To optimize the charging speed of your device, try lowering your screen brightness and closing unused applications.
Alto Live mixers allow you to send the main mix to either the CTRL OUT or PHONES output, but not to both at the same time. If you do not hear any signal coming out of your headphones, make sure that MAIN OUT is selected by depressing the button above the headphone volume knob.
This input allows you to use a standard 1/4" latching-style footswitch to toggle the mixer's internal effects processor.
When the green SIG light blinks on a channel, it means that a level of 2dBU has been reached. For optimum performance, try to only have this illuminate at your signals highest peaks.
The red clipping light will illuminate when your signal has reached +20dBU.
