Live 1604’s high headroom results in cleaner mixes, a purer signal path, and loud, punchy audio. On-board analog compression (channels 1-6) helps control dynamics and gel instruments together for a cohesive, defined mix. With high headroom, pristine sound, and built-in dynamic control, Live 1604 ensures that the full dynamic range of your mix comes across with striking clarity.
Record your mix directly to a Mac or PC with a single USB connection. The Alto Live 1604’s built-in USB port allows engineers, producers, and performers to convert two channels of 24-bit audio (Main Mix or Sub Mix 1/2) straight to a computer. Record live performances, band practices, theatre 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 the Live 1604.
