    My personal experiences with Behringer mixers has been pretty bad, but I have read that some folks like their digital knock-off of a Yamaha 01.In any case, Behringers are NOT professional-quality audio products. Mackie mixers, especially their ONYX series, are MUCH better in terms of audio quality and build quality. You can get the ONYX (say, a 1620) with a Firewire card, and have a 16-track-ready mixer for less than $1200.00 ("street"). Get online and check them (and the reviews) out. I think that for what you are wanting to do, they are the most practical mixer out there.

    agree with moon.. Mackie Rocks! Can try looking at Phonic? http://www.phonic.com/

    IMHO.. behringers still work well, never tried one before but perhaps you just can't use ribbons or dynamics on behringers.

    For the interior and exterior quality.. Mackie's claims for "built-like-a-tank" mixers, quiet pres, and its sense of humour:p.. I had chose to starve for a few more months and get a mackie. All for Mackie!!
