Default Can I sell my Alesis Multimix 8 Firewire?

Hi guys,

A few years ago I bought an Alesis Multimix 8 Firewire. I never really learnt how to use it properly and this was partly because it simply wouldn't play nice with any the three or four computers I tried it on. I had endless problems with BSODs in Vista and 7 when trying to install drivers. So I forgot about it.

I did however use it simply to mix different inputs together and output to a USB audio device, which I then used to make recordings on my computer. Fast forward to now, and I want to sell it. It is apparently working on my current 64 bit Windows 8 PC, using the latest Windows 7 drivers, (it shows up in the Alesis Firewire control panel program) but I know very little about mixers, so my question is simple: Is there any way that I would have damaged it through playing around with it over the past few years, or am I safe to sell? Also, I've seen one on eBay for 160; is this an attainable sum?

I did plug in my guitar and tried to record using Audacity (which detects two channels only); it recorded, but very quietly.

Thank you for reading!

Adam

Unlikely you've broken it just from playing around with it (unless you like to play rough

No idea what the going rate is I'm afraid.

NB. Looks like you can pick them up new for less than 160. In general terms things tend to sell for approx a half to three quarters of new price (unless rare or special)
