I've owned my Mackie 3204 now for 7 months and I love it !!
Yes it is advertised as a mixer for live applications which I'm sure it would do just fine,however I don't perform live and never have and I purchased the 3204 because I needed more inputs than the Mackie CFX-20 had and it performed very well for me for over 6 years .
All of my work is for the sole purpose of releasing my own CD's and like the CFX-20 before it ....the 3204 does a great job .The inputs are extremely clean sounding,the internal effects are very basic,but can be useful at times. I run my guitars and effects through my amps of choice and mic the amps and then run it into the 3204 for a killer sound and more control in the mixing stage and it handles my synths and pianos quite well too !!
I acquired my 3204 for right around $1000 new.
I have mine set-up to go straight into a Tascam DP-02 and my DAW of choice (Sonar and Acid Pro) and it does a great job of giving me two separate mixes to work with any combination of instrumentation I can throw at it !!
It is a Great and Versatile studio as well as live mixer !!
If you can you should test drive one today....I think you'll like it !!

Mackie 1640i is a do it all 16 channel unit. Great preamps, great converters (same used in Avid units). Google it and read the reviews.
