Mixers...

    I was considering buying a mixer for my home recording studio. What I would prefer is a mixer that would last me a couple of years, so I don't end up upgrading. My budget for mixers is around $200 and under, but if I really have to, $300. I'm new to mixers so I don't know if 200 dollars is enough to buy a good mixer.
    Thanks

    [EDIT]
    I will be recording with 7 or 8 channels, but for now, just 1.

    That's seems pretty strait forward. I'll think about it.

    For a little more you should look at this Mackie too!....more channels and features than the smaller one for not much more!
    Can you tell yet that I would have you consider Mackie over the Behringers?!?....LOL

    Why do you want a mixer? Are you needing to combine mics to a track(s) as you record? Do you have a "real" interface or just a cheap soundcard? To be honest, if you are recording just yourself to a computer-based rig, you really don't need a mixer. Adding a mixer isn't going to make the tracks sound better, especially if the mixer is a low-priced affair and you are running it into a soundblaster card. So, please, give us the scoop!
    BTW, a mixer priced at $200-300 isn't likely to last you "a couple of years". They are designed and built to be "throw-away" consumer devices after their short lifespan. Save your $$ and pop for a better level of quality. We can discuss this in more detail after you clarify your situation and needs.
