Does anyone have any recomendations for a good simple mixer for home use. Here are the requirements:

1. Has to have 2 stereo channels (one for Motif, other for computer) with main out to go to Speakers (KRK 6 r2)
2. Don’t need anything fancy like effect sends, eq, etc.
3. A Mic input with phantom power would be nice but not necessary
4. Cheap

I think that’s it. All I want to do is play my Motif and my computer through the same speakers.

Thanks,.
Matt

Hi msavard,
The Audiogram 3 or Audiogram 6 may be what you are looking for.  I have a 6 and it works great with my MO8 and my PC based computer.  It connects to your computer via USB cable, and it has up to 4 input channels.  2 channels have combination XLR/1/4 inch tip sleeve connectors, and these two channels can be combined into one stereo channel.  They can also be used as instrument inputs or mic inputs, and one of them has phantom power.  Then there are two more channels that can have stereo inputs (like from a keyboard) or a mono input from a guitar.  Then the outputs from your computer can flow through this interface and can be connected to your studio monitors along with a headphone jack. Even if all 4 channels are being used, the output into your DAW is a single stereo audio output.  The only bell and whistle is the mic/instrument XLR/1/4 inputs have adjustable compression.

Street price is $149 for the audiogram 6.  The 3 is really scaled back and is only like $30 less.  Also, I really am not really skilled at computer recording and I have been able to set mine up and get it fully functional without a lot of pain.

Hope this helps.
