I am looking to get a small/good mixer that i could use at home. I own a iPad 2, iMac and Macbook Pro and use garage band a lot ( i play guitar ) I own 2 guitar modeling preamps ( GSP1101 and RP355 ) both units offer 1/4 outs and XLR outs for going to a mixer and recording direct. I currently use a Blue YETI USB mic and just mic my cab and record it into garage band but at times i would like to record direct ( like late at night ) I also plug my RP355 directly into my iPad with the camera connection kit and record at times via USB. I am just getting tired of plugging and unplugging cable for everything ( i currently just have 1 pair of basic PC speakers ) I already purchased a pair of monitors now ( they are on there way ) so now i am just looking for a small mixer. I am pretty much looking at the Mackie 402-VLZ3 100.00 or the Behringer XENYX 802 65.00, Also there is a Behringer Xenyx 1204USB for 164.00 that offers USB Will the USB option come in handy for me? or no? Could i output the USB to say, the iPad camera connection kit? if the USB option really wouldnt benefit me then i might skip on a mixer with a USB port. All i really need are 2 XLR/TRS ( i think there called ) preamps and then like 2 or 3 more inputs, So the units above seem to fit the bill. I plan on just running 1 of my preamps to the mixer. I would also like to input my iMac and iPad to the inputs to use for monitoring and just basic music playing. Any advice on which mixer would be a good choice? not looking to spend more then 200.00 and i am not really a "pro" when it comes to recording but i do want something that is good/decent. Any help would be great, thanks.
