    alright, i need some good suggestions for a mixer. i'd like to get a rackmountable one so i can use it for home recording as well as take it on the road with as a PA. what are some that are powered and of relatively good quality and some that arent powered and good quality. i'm looking for maybe 8 channels. think in terms of how the sm58 is the industry standard for a good price and a great quality, and thats what i want in a mixer.



    also, i could use some suggestions for power amps and studio monitors as well. thanks!

    You can't go wrong with the Mackie stuff.

    Check out the Mackie Onyx series of mixers. These are offering better preamp's than the VLZ series of mixers. The other key is the flexability to be able to use them in the studio and out live.

    I have two Mackie 1202 VLZ pros and love them. One is used as a patchbay and the other is for monitoring.

    I've always been partial to the Soundcraft stuff over Mackie or A&H but the Mackie Onyx w/ the firewire card would be the way to go for a dual purpose mixer.

    QSC amps for the live rig.

    Search the forum for monitor suggestions.
