Hi..... keen to get a mixer for myself, with at least 8 faders. I had my mind on behringer because of the cost and then RO totally changed my mind.. haha.. I now eyeing on Mackie DFX-12 or Yamaha's MG124FX 12. Had looked at Peavey's PV-10 I need opinions on which is better and my needs are to record violin or to mix a rock band. Well, Another question is that whether it is better and cheaper to get a seperate DFX or just spend on a mixer with inbuilt FX, assuming I need the FX.
