Well im getting really tired of reconnecting shit all the time and i want it properly connected now.. so im in the market for a small mixer for my home studio. I really only need to connect my decks, my sp 303 and my A-station to it at the same time and then go straight to the line in of my laptop!!
so i basically need 6-8 channels for it.. it would be nice with the 2 extras cause i need them for later if i add an mpc or something!
what do you guys recommend/what are your experiences?

If you want a mixer you can cut with, Vestax makes that quality shit. If you have a shit load of money then you might want to think about Rane.

Go to www.turntablelab.com to get information on all their mixers, they have great unbiased reviews and you can really get a good idea of what each mixer offers.

I have a Vestax 05PRO and it has all the inputs/outputs that you'd need (according to your equipment above).

Check out the site, bro.

Multimix 12 USB Mixer + Audio Interface $250

Multimix 8 USB Mixer + Audio Interface $150

Multimix 6FX Sound Mixer $100

the 12 is dope cause it's got the faders instead of knobs. this is huge, imo. much more musical in its functionality. the 6 is only $100, a steal with all those efx. the 8 sounds like its what you want, but it IS a usb audio interface too (the 6 is not). on the turntablelab site it says these are all built w/ low-noise electronics. the mackie ones are very popular too

by the way, what's an A-Station? also, how do you sample into the 303--through your decks? if you have your decks and 303 going into the computer seperately, how do you get samples into the 303? you could go out your decks into the 303, then out to the comp. you can have the a-station going into the 303's mic-in or out the headphone out if you need to too.

i have my 303 going into the computer, then back out into the 303, with my decks going into the 303's mic-in too. i just mute the track i'm recording onto in garageband to avoid a feedback loop

i don't get why you're worried about noise if you're using a 303 and pt-01 :blink: :huh: :blink:
...but the alesis is supposed to be pretty low-noise.
