    For Quality, I would go with a Mackie. However Behringer also makes some pretty good Quality mixers for reasonable prices.

    IMO the best quality is achieved by having the shortest signal chain as possible, which means no mixer. However, then routing stuff becomes a hassle, so I understand the need. Also, IMHO Alesis and Behringer mixers suck, I wouldn't choose to run my signals through one of those on purpose.

    If you really want a mixer, if you can wait just a little longer, look at the new Mackie Onyx series:

    How much do you think the mackie onyx mixers going to cost?

    The Onyx mixers seem dope but I know Mackie mixers usually cost a pretty penny(but are worth it from what i hear)

    Right now i have a behringer mixer and its working well for me but that onyx seems tight.

    One
    Its more than music. Its a movement!!!

    Sorry to piss on the parade here but the only Behringer mixers that are any good are the DDx3216 and the upgraded 8000(albeit with reservations), the rest of the range cannot be compared to Mackies in any department except price.

    i agree get a 002 or 001 whatever you can afford and make your life easier. if you kno how to use protools even on the most basic level your **** will come out better. if you really want a physical board you can get the mackie ones that work with protools theyre lovely

    For the digi 001 or 002 what all will you need to have a complete system for that? I have heard about it but i don't really have any knowledge on it.

    simple, a computer, monitors, and some type of midi controller.

    that's it. both 001 and 002 come with the interface and software--PTools 6.X and a host of other aps such as Reason, Ableton Live, Samplitude, and a great bundle of other plugins. Granted, you get "lite" versions of some of them, but overall they are fantastic packages. My friend just got the 002 Rackmount for about $1100 which is an absolutely KILLER deal.


    oh, and skip the Behringer board unless you like noise--and i ain't talking bout the nice kind.

    I've gotten no noise out of any Behr board i've tried (MX3282A, MX9000). And I actually perfer the MX9000 to the Mackie 32-8, heh.
