Professional Mixing Features
The Alto ZEPHYR ZMX122FX is an 8-channel, 2-bus mixer with all the inputs, outputs, routing, EQ, and effects you need for more intimate live performance reinforcement situations. It features four microphone inputs with balanced TRS jacks (two with Phantom Power), a three-band EQ and two AUX sends on each of the four mono channels and the two stereo channels, and even two-track inputs for things such as audio playback. The Alto ZEPHYR ZMX122FX is the perfect compact take-anywhere professional mixer.

  • 12 total inputs including XLR jacks with phantom power on channels one through four
  • Four microphone input channels with gold plated XLR and balanced line inputs
  • Two stereo input channels with balanced TRS jacks
  • Extremely high headroom offering extra dynamic range
  • Three-band EQ on each channel
  • On-board digital effects processor and three-shelf EQ on each mono and stereo channel
  • Footswitch input for effects bypass (footswitch not included)
  • Two aux sends pre-channel for external effects and monitoring
  • Two bus design with Main and Control Room 1/4” stereo outputs

256 Onboard Effects
Regardless of what you're mixing, give your mix a professional edge with 256 onboard 24-bit DSP effects designed in partnership with Alesis. Sure, we could have chosen some cheap, off-the-shelf effects to throw in, but instead we worked closely with Alesis, a company that has been setting standards for DSP technology for nearly three decades. Choose from room and space delays, small and large hall acoustics, plate and spring reverbs, flangers, chorus effects and more. The Alto ZEPHYR ZMX122FX offers 16 variations of 16 professional Alesis effects from which to build, tweak, and dial in your sound. There's even a footswitch input so you can bypass all effects at the touch, or stomp, of a button. (footswitch not included)

Versatile Inputs and Outputs
The Alto ZEPHYR ZMX122FX is the swiss army knife of your creative life needs. Not only can you can plug dynamic, condenser, and wireless microphones into the first four channels, but you also get two stereo channel inputs for keyboards, drum machines, and other instruments. What's more, you can easily plug in your MP3 player, CD players, or audio from a DVD player into the CD/TAPE inputs. But you also have two AUX sends that you can use to send streams of audio from your mixer to a digital effects unit, stage monitor, TV screen, or any number of sources. Choose the ZMX122FX as the audio central command for your live performances, home studio, or video suite.

High headroom, low noise
The ZMX122FX packs an enormous amount of features into a very compact space, but we took a no-compromise approach where the purity of your mix is concerned. This compact mixer brings the same standard of quality to your performances as our top-of-the-line models. All Alto Professional ZEPHYR ZMX mixers are designed with high headroom and ultra low-noise, discrete mic preamps so you always get the full dynamic range of your mix every time.  

Visualize your mix
We designed every ZEPHYR ZMX mixer with your performance in mind. Sometimes venues are dark and it can be hard to see what you're working with. Alto Professional solves this problem by not only color coding each section of the mixer, but also by using brightly colored knobs so that you can easily find what you need to adjust before you ever lay a finger on the mixer.  Our blue, red, yellow and white pots are instantly easy to identify in dim lighting. LED indicators for output level, peak, and phantom power also assist in making sure that you have multiple visual cues that compliment everything you're hearing.
