 Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can I use an Alto Live mixer to record into my computer?

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. 

What is the ratio of the built-in compressor?

The built-in compressor is a 3:1 fixed ratio.

How is the built-in compressor controlled?

The COMP knob controls both the threshold and makeup gain for the compressor. 

If I want to use an Alto Live series mixer in another country do I need a new power supply?

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.

How come my tablet or smartphone isn't charging when I plug it into USB port on top of my Alto Live mixer?

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. 

Why can't I hear any audio from the headphone output?

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.

What is the DFX BYPASS jack for?

This input allows you to use a standard 1/4" latching-style footswitch to toggle the mixer's internal effects processor. 

What does the green SIG light indicate?

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. 

At what level does does the red clipping light illuminate?

The red clipping light will illuminate when your signal has reached +20dBU.
