    I've just bought myself a lovely Tascam 238S 8 track recorder. Being a standalone unit, I've got to invest in a mixer for the first time.

    I've narrowed it down to either a Mackie CFX12 or a Mackie 1402VLZ. Can anyone tell me which of these would be better suited to my needs / set-up.

    The 1402 will have better quality pres. I have a CFX12 for a small PA system and it's fine for that, but the built in effects aren't worth recording or mixing with.
