    I hope everyone is having/had a great Christmas. I'm looking for a little bit of help as I'd like to buy a mixer for home use. Basically what I want to do is plug my amp(kemper), metronome and or backing track into the mixer along with the a pair of headphones so I can listen to/play to a metronome/backing track at the same time utilizing headphones. My budget is around $130 and I just briefly looked at Yamaha and Makie but I'm new to all this stuff. Any help is greatly appreciated thanks everyone

    Honestly, since you don't need golden preamps or have peculiar needs, anything from Behringer and above will do. Don't lose your mind on the purchase I'd say. Plus, another factor is the quality of outboard gear (in your case, headphones) you'll be heading your mixer into.

    I use a Mackie 1202 for exactly what you want. It cost me 100$ used.
    Works perfectly for several years now.

    Thanks guys, I'm using akg for cans which are somewhat decent. This is exactly what I needed to know. I just wanted to make sure it was going to work for what I needed
