Alesis manufactures a full line of professional audio and musical instrument products capitalizing on its strengths in digital, analog, semiconductor, and transducer technologies. Alesis products include keyboards, synthesizers, hard disk recorders, electronic drums, mixers, signal processors, effects units, amplifiers and speakers. Alesis delivers revolutionary product solutions to the music and audio production industries.
Established in 1980, Alesis was founded on innovative semi-conductor chip technology and award winning industrial designs that allowed entry level musicians and recording artists to afford professional studio recording products that were never affordable before. With high "bang for the buck" value, Alesis introduced the world's first professional 16 bit effects processor under $1000, the Midiverb. Following on the heels of the Midiverb, Alesis progressed into studio quality drum machines (HR-16 and SR-16) as well as synthesizers, studio monitors and mixing consoles.
1991 proved to be the ground-breaking year for Alesis, with the introduction of the ADAT Multi-Channel Digital Tape Recorder. Before ADAT, a studio would have to invest $50,000 in order to afford a multi-track digital recorder. With ADAT, the price tag came down to $4,000, essentially allowing every home and project studio to afford digital recording. This new technology allowed any artist or musician to record studio quality recordings.
In 2001, Alesis was acquired by Jack O'Donnell, and the company has since ventured into producing the worlds most affordable analog mixers with built-in Digital Signal Processing (MultiMix Series Mixers), as well as highly innovative and adaptable computer audio interfaces and controllers (MasterControl).Alesis is committed to providing exciting and innovative products and aggressive price points.
