spirit Lx7 as a studio mixer?



hi there,

i own a small homestudio ( with a synth, emu sampler, audiowerk 8 and some fx stuff ) and i'm looking for a new mixer, since my spirit folio SX hasn't got enough channels. i was thinking of the Spirit Lx7, 24 mono channels, nice EQ and enough aux sends.. sounds okay to me. now i know it is considered as a *live* mixer. can anyone tell me whats the difrence between a live mixer and a studio mixer? is it just a label that spirit gives their mixers, or are live mixers less good when it comes to sound quality .. ? anyone tried the Lx7?

Does that Spirit mixer have inserts or direct outs on the channels? You need some type of multitrack recorder to get your sounds to tape, then u can mix it later
