    I have a few condenser mics and am looking to do some multi track recording in Garageband. What usb/firewire mixer will let me simulatiously record 2-3 tracks at once? I am running Mac OS X on my Macbook Pro

    Alesis do a cool little 8 channel Firewire mixer capable of delivering a number of tracks.

    Not sure if it works with garageband, but it does with Logic and Cubase etc.

    I have the Tascam FW-1082. It's a Firewire mixer, eight input channels (up to four with pre-amps, the rest are line-in). It also serves as a control surface with motorized faders, very helpful for mixing. Not sure if Garageband supports it, but if you are looking into upgrading to Logic at some point, that would be a good choice.

    The device goes for around $600, last time I checked.

    save yourself the headaches and get a Firepod by Presonus.

    Easiest way to multitrack record on a Mac IMO

    Would you mind explaining what headaches the OP is going to run into with other solutions (besides the Firepod)?
