The VideoTrack is the first Alesis video and audio field recorder. Its tiny size makes the VideoTrack easy to grab and go, and it captures incredible picture and stereo sound thanks to DSP image processing and built-in condenser mics. Record video and audio right onto a standard SD or SDHC card and upload it straight to Facebook or YouTube! Get the details here.

The MultiMix 6 USB is a six-channel desktop mixer designed for easy integration into a computer-based recording environment. This compact mixer is perfect for use in recording setups, video editing and production studios. Learn more about the MultiMix 6 USB

Connecting a turntable for recording can be a drag if you don't have the right mixer. PhonoLink is our new AudioLink series cable that simplifies recording vinyl, tapes, or even the outputs from your mixer straight to your DAW or production software. The PhonoLink has phono/line-switchable RCA inputs with a level trim and a standard USB connection. Get the rest of the info here.

The six-piece DM10 Studio Kit builds on the successful DM10 Pro Kit, bringing its incredible sounds, natural feel and customizability to even more drummers. Based around the critically acclaimed DM10 drum module, the DM10 Studio Kit features Alesis’ RealHead drum pads, DMPad Cymbals and StealthRack mounting system. Learn more here.

Seen first as part of the DM10 Pro Kit, this groundbreaking drum module has the electronic drum world abuzz. It features a premium, uncompressed, multi-sampled sound set with more than 1,000 sounds and is the first drum module that enables you to load new sound sets via USB. In addition to the DM10 Pro Kit and DM10 Studio Kit, the DM10 is now available on its own. Get the full scoop from the DM10 page.

Meet the USB Studio Drum Kit, a MIDI controller for triggering software, that looks and feels like a drum set. The true touch of RealHead dual-zone pads and DMPad Cymbals creates an acoustic-feeling drumming experience that’s perfect for tracking in studios. Imagine laying down a killer groove and then changing the sounds later! Learn more here.
