I bought myself one of those Behringer UB1204's. It cost $304 Canadian, which isn't too bad. So far I've only just set it up quickly and played a few things through it and it sounds very good. Not noticing much, if any, difference between it and the Mackie. Except that the right channel is strong. Hooray. The EQs also seem very nice, possibly even nicer than the Mackie ones.
I also apparently needed to buy more cables. Just when you think you own all the cables in the world, apparently you need two more.
I'm also not really sure how to hook this thing up in the optimum way.
Also I have a cold and my throat is sore. That is not awesome.
