This Controller is Whatever You Need, Whenever You Need It

There are plenty of home studio owners around Sweetwater, and we know that no two are exactly alike. Livid understands this too, and that's why they design ultra-flexible programmable control surfaces like the Alias 8. It's got 16 performance pads you can use to play drums and synths or toggle software settings, and you can color code them for easy visual identification. A total of nine faders and 17 knobs round out the control set. While the Alias 8 is a chameleon controller that can fit into any studio, it's also got unlimited potential in any DJ or electronic music performance rig.

Control up to 15 devices with one single controller

You probably already have an idea of what you could do with the Livid Alias 8 in your setup - everything from controlling software instruments and drum machines, to managing a light system or mixing audio. But the best part is that you can access 15 different control templates at any time, all on separate MIDI channels. So even if you have a large, complicated MIDI rig, you'll have extensive control over it with the compact Alias 8.

Tap into a community of dedicated control freaks

Sweetwater Sales Engineers have been around long enough to know that "extremely customizable" can sometimes be code for "you'll spend hours programming this" - not so with the Livid Alias 8. It is easy to configure, but the best part is that thousands of other Alias 8 users have been creating their own custom maps for years. In fact you may find that you never have to program anything on the Alias 8, because other users have probably blazed the trail for you already.

If this isn't enough control for you, it's easy to expand further

On top of extensive hands on control, the Alias 8 is made to expand with your needs. On the back panel you'll find two expansion ports. The expansion ports let you add other Livid control modules to the Alias 8, which really takes its versatility to a whole new level. We know how important a smooth workflow is to you, so call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have any questions about the best way to expand the Alias 8 for your needs.
