    First of all, I am new to recording and just doing it for personal use. I have been plugging my guitar\mic into the single input of my soundcard and recording single tracks. I do not plan to do anything serious but just experimenting. I wanted to get a small inexpensive mixer and have narrowed my choice down to the Peavey PV6 (http://www.peavey.com/products/browse.cfm/action/detail/item/115024/number/00512000/cat/86/begin/1/PV%AE+6.cfm) and Alto AMX-100 without digital effects (http://www.altoproaudio.com/html/mixers.php). I know these are bottom of the barrell models but that is what I want.

    Could someone give me their opinion on each of these and why they would choose one over the other.

    Thanks for your anticipated help

    To be honest if you could afford it - go for the Soundcraft Spirit notepad. Much better than either of your other two choices.

    Other choices would be Mackie/Tapco 6306
    Yamaha MG10/2

    Last time i touched a Peavey mixer it fell apart in my hand.

    I agree with 02x..Peavey products have always had a bad sound quality, noisey, and a build quality that made a Yugo look good.
    Stick to the Tapco, Yamaha, and Soundcraft. Alto is a "cheap" line from...ART, another product line that is usually best avoided.
