Alesis mixer console advice

    I'm a newbie trying to get together a home studio, record 3-4 tracks at a time just for fun...demo quality at best- been reading and lurking for about a month....

    I am going DAW route, have following:
    RME multiface w/PCI card
    presonus firestation
    NS 10 monitors
    Yamaha S 80 keyboard (pro keyboard)-I'll use it for drums/bass probably
    Shure 58
    Shure 57
    Nady cheapo
    Cubase SX2

    I would like a hands on mixer for mix and mastering, not just a software mixer...

    Question..saw an Alesis mixer on ebay, I think it might provide me the 'hands on' I desire AND get me some additional mic inputs....I know they are "cheap pre's" but again, I'm just getting started and I would like some advice on this idea as well as Alesis mixers in general.....

    There were a lot of quality issues with the Alesis mixer ... they had a high failure rate in the field ...

    The quality is no better that that of other small mixers at this price point, so if I were you I would be looking at somthing that is a little more durable ... like a Mackie 1604 ... say what you want about them no will argue they are built like a tank ..
