I read a lots about the Mackie 1604, 24-4 event the 24-8.A lots people just use it for monitoring and don't use the EQ.A lots my friend sellin their 24 or 16 Mixer cuz they just for monitoring not recording and Mixing. So...Is it good idea buy 2 or 3 rane SM26 Line Mixer just for Monitoring and Direct out for Recoring through the Preamp or Compressor or outboard EQ first and Mix in my Daw.I think it's not waste the Room Space and Mackie EQ and save some money. Is it good Idea?? How's the Rane Sound Quality for recordin. I have the DJ Mixer of Rane, I feel not bad. How you guys think?Thanks for help.
