    I want a cheap, small mixer/recorder for my house. My friend has one that I really like, but it's Behringer. I refuse to buy Behringer. If I could hook it up to my computer, that would be cool. I'm a total newb to this, so I don't know much. Thanks for the help!

    I have a Soundcraft CompAct 4 mixer (http://www.soundcraft.com/product_sheet.asp?product_id=121). It was designed with hooking up to a computer in mind. I dig it. The only thing I wish it had, feature wise, was an aux send or two (it does have effect insert points), but this isn't a huge issue with me as I do most of my effects processing with software plugins in my DAW. I think I paid $120 or so for it.

    The Yamaha MG mixers are well thought of, so you may look into those as well. I think the cheapest MG goes for about $100 at various online stores.

    Check out the Mackie Onyx mixers, several different sizes and can be hooked into a compy as an interface of sorts.
