    Okay, you guys have got me doing a little more research. Maybe I am totally fine with my 2i2 and what I really need to do is invest that money in a couple of better microphones! I can use the 2i2 to mic vocals and acoustic without running the acoustic direct. If I ever want to run the acoustic direct I can always hook my Mackie 802vlz4 to the 2i2 to add the extra input. Thinking maybe the sE8 and sE2200?

    No, you can't? Yes, you can hook the 802 to the line inputs of the 2i2 IF you wanted the EQ of the mixer and the mic pres MIGHT have a bit more gain/lower noise but I doubt it, F'rite pres are usually pretty good.

    If you were thinking of getting 4 tracks recorded you need an AI with ADDITIONAL line inputs such as my (superb!) NI KA6.

    Ah! I see the 802vlz4 has THREE mic inputs! IF mnfctrs are going to rip each others model Nos, WTF can't they be consistent with the %$!g speccs!? ...So, you COULD plug in 3 mics and have two panned hard L&R and one in'middle.

    I am not really worried about recording tracks separately. Thinking more along the lines of live recording.

    Ok, so you could run the mixer into the line inputs in that case and 'pan' the mics in a stereo track.
