Patching a phone into a Mackie board in V/O booth

Hi, all! I'm a tech-challenged home voice-over guy. I have a Mackie board in the booth with me, but the phantom power for my mic actually comes from a separate Grace Design mic preamp outside.

Need help with setup for Mackie 24*8 mixer and Tascam interface

Hi folks,
I'm in the process of putting my home studio together, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting two-way communication between my Mackie 24*8 bus mixing board, and a Tascam US-16x08.
I have limited experience with mixing boards, but a friend sold me the Mackie for "an offer I couldn't refuse".

Is Mackie worth the cheap price?

I'm looking at getting an audio mixing board and want to spend no more than $200. At first I was going to get a Behringer 1204x with USB. However reading reviews and fourm entries I decided against it. Currently, I see the Mackie Pro-FX8 mixer. It offers all the features and more than the Behringer for the same price.
