I definitely would have gone with a Mackie if I could afford it :\
As it is, I had to borrow $40 to pay for the Alto.

without a doubt your alto will sound better than my Korg(!!!) mixer (which is the centerpiece of my studio), and I have absolutely no complaints about it ;D

Seems like a question you could answer yourself by looking at the link. All that's missing is USB capability, but I can do without that until I can afford it. Really I just want to know if the Alto brand has a thumbs up.

Not really. I mean, I assume you're using this for live sound? Do you have any external effects to use? What kind of mics do you have for this? What kind of speakers are you sending this to? Are you planning to use this to record? What kind of interface would you be sending this to if so?

If we don't know what your set up is, and what you plan to do with this item, how can we give good feedback on it? Anyways....I just checked the price on it....for that cheap I hardly think the quality matters.

music

So after I am done the chat I am thinking about getting back into making music - which involves an extensive redling of all the software I lost since my computer crash this year (one thing that has deterred my music making) as well as buying of some new software..

I wanna explore binaural (holophonic) more.. just not sure I wanna spend the 500 dollars needed for the software.. and that's just for stereo.. surround sound was like 4 times that price.. the software looks legit though, and really.. cuts down on the mixing process.. perhaps by 100%.. haven't really fully tested it out though. Looks pretty cpu intensive though so I'm goigg to guess that not a lot of people will actually be able to make it WORK.

I'd tell you what the software is, but, frankly, every man's gotta have his secrets :)

About $1800. Not that there's a point to spending that much on one, but yeah.

the bg is an image - you can make it as complex looking or as simple as you like - you can even upload animated bgs - thus that factor is all up to you - I just chose that one because I like the colours :P

Depends, what kind of games are you into?

I'm into like free-roam, fighting or shooting games. As an example I got Modern Warfare 2 & Fallout:NewVegas for 5 Euro, They were really nice.
