SR24"4 24x4 bus mixing console

That's what Pro Audio Review said about Mackie's SR24"4 sound reinforcement mixing console. We designed the SR24"4 and SR32"4 to be the best value 4-bus live sound mixers ever offered; yet we also knew that almost anyone who performs music live wants to record it, too. So we made sure that the SR Series mixers could do both well.
Both mixers feature major amounts of headroom, thanks to Mackie's VLZ® circuitry. They also have main and submix amplifiers that use our distinctive negative gain mix architecture, which provides double the mix headroom of conventional designs.
Ultra-quiet high-headroom mic preamps on mono channels (20 on the SR24"4, 28 on the SR32"4) mean great-sounding vocals or instruments. And our low cut filter (on mono channels) centered at 75Hz allows you to cut out mic thumps and wind noise that can enter your mix and rob you of amplifier power. Four buses make live mixing a breeze -- send all of your vocal mics to one bus, maybe your drum tracks to another -- by letting you control the overall level of those channels with one fader.

The SR Series mixers have six aux sends per channel, with the flexibility to handle multiple chores at once. Two of the aux sends are pre-fader, so you can use them for monitor sends during a live session. Two other aux sends are post-fader, which you would want for effects during studio tracking and mixdown. But get this: the final two aux sends are switchable to pre- or post-fader! So you can have 4 pre-fader aux sends, or 4 post-fader aux sends, whenever you need them.
Equalization on the SR Series mixers is quite musical. Besides the fact that our Hi and Lo shelving EQ are centered at useful frequencies -- 12kHz and 80Hz, respectively -- the SR24"4 and SR32"4 have sweepable midrange EQ (on mono channels). You can center the midrange anywhere from 100Hz to 8kHz, low enough to use as a second low frequency EQ, and high enough to use in the high frequency range. (Stereo channels on both mixers have 4-band EQ, with 12kHz and 80Hz Hi and Lo shelving EQ, and two fixed mids at 3kHz and 800Hz.)
Along with great channel EQ, the SR mixers come with factory "Air." This peaking EQ circuit, centered at 16kHz, enhances guitars, vocals, percussion, whatever, giving a gentle "lift" to the extreme high end. The result is extra detail and fidelity in the high end. Sound On Sound magazine said about Air: "[The] Air controls turned out to be far more effective in adding top-end clarity than you might first imagine -- it's almost an 'exciter' kind of effect, but without the harshness."
When you put all of the SR Series' features together, you'll find two highly-affordable sound reinforcement mixers that have what it takes to serve as flexible live and studio consoles.
