Got a new mixer today, went with the Mackie.
So far, I really like it, especially for $229. I almost went with the 12, but this thing has a pretty big footprint as it is (it's twice the size of my old 12-channel Behringer) and if I ever need more inputs (heh) I can route whatever through my MOTU into it.
It's really well built, and unlike the Behringer, it actually has a power switch on the back. (I seriously don't understand why companies make things w/o them... Like Line 6, for example).
The faders all feel great and A/B running my Axe-II into it vs. directly into the 1221s sounds pretty much identical to me. I dig it.
(Now to find some longer cables to clean up those ugly blue ones running from my vDrums...)
Size comparo between it and my old Behringer. (+free motion blur)
