My band won some money at a battle of the bands, and we used it for a mixer, a soundcraft spirit notepad for £100 (GBP) genious wee thing, amazing preamps and its small enough to record gigs with. i use it for my own solo stuff at home, id reccomend it!!!

Grand piano.
Reed and pipe organ.
Bass guitar.
Vocal chords.
Two slightly sampled electric guitars.
The venitian effect.
Digital sound processor.
And Tubular bells.

Well, that's a pretty wide brief!

There's a whole range of solutions out there, and different ones will suit different people. There are the analogue mixers which fill both the cheapest (Behringer are usually a safe bet at the bottom end, Spirit are very good, Mackie are a bit more expensive but you may well feel they're worth paying for) and the most expensive price slots (Neve and SSL are both popular. More towards the mid range, DDA used to be good, though it seems they're no longer around. Audient are worth a serious look. Calrec are more popular in broadcast, but they're great), then there are digital mixers which tend to cram a lot of features into a fairly compact device (Yamaha's digital desks are pretty much the industry standard. I used to like the Spirit 328, but that's no longer made. The problem with digital desks can be the fiddly interfaces), and solutions which combine software with dedicated control hardware can provide a lot of flexibility (Digidesign's Icon system will give you pretty much all you want, they do things which come lower down in price too. Pretty much every software mixing package can be controlled from a hardware control surface, so it's something worth looking into). If you just want a couple of mic amps and some EQ, you might not need a mixer at all - a recording channel might be a better option.

It really depends on your budget and what you want to do with it!

These aren't mixers, but they should resolve any difficulties in moving slides and twiddling knobs in a computer program:
