Mixers compared

I currently have a Mackie 14 channel mixer, which I'm happy with. I will soon need another few channels, such as about 18-20 (unpowered.) I know that Mackie has this ProFX line that is less expensive than their VLZ line (and the ProFX, as the name implies, even has onboard FX.) The VLZ has these "pristine" Onyx mike preamps, though I read that the newest ProFx line has newer better mike preamps than the previous line of ProFX.

struggling to record/play electric guitar compared to a commercial studio

hey guys I have recently been doing some recording at home with my line 6 Ux2, and have been struggling to get good guitar tones with my real fender/vox/orange amps, and get better tones and performances out of the line 6 amp farm direct sound.

Here and in the studio I was using 1 sm57, and in the studio my friend who was working the session was not as diligent with mic placement and got far superior tones through the phones/monitors instantly. they sat better in the mix, and as a play i felt more comfortable playing.

Production Values Today...Compared to Yesterday

I'm sure I'm going to get flamed for this, but..

what do people like so much about the Abbey Road kick sound? or the entire recording for that matter.

Maybe it's because I'm young (19) but I just don't get it. I listen to it and to me it just sounds so. weak. It sounds distant, or something.

Again, maybe I'm just too young to understand it, but when I hear the words "great recording" I think of highly produced metal bands.
