  2. The Alesis MultiMix 8 Firewire your utilizing appears to be discontinued and they are only offering The Alesis Multimix 8 USB FX. Ive read that there is a distinct difference in these mixers which would not be conducive for the true use of the Mix Minus method for podcasting purposes like yours.
