Seeking recommendations for a sub US$100 sound mixer

Hardware & Accessories

Hello and thanks for any suggestions you may have.
I am looking for a mixer. What I would like to do is record, rip & burn music while adding my voice and grand-kids voices. Possibly do a private podcasting.

Also looking for a mixer that I can set-up with minimum sighted assistance and a price under $100.
Thanks again.

Its going to be hard to find a mixer for that price that offers much functionality. You can usually get a cheap mixer for under a hundred dollars, but its probably going to have two XLR microphone inputs and a couple of stereo inputs as well for music or other audio devices. A brand I personally have is Samson. They can be purchased from Sam Ash music if their is a store near you or you can order one on line.

The model I have, has two microphone inputs so it could be used for you and one other guest to record a podcast. If you wanted more of a round table discussion or more then two microphones for a podcast you would probably have to spend more in the 150 dollar range to have four inputs.
If you have questions please let me know or I can provide a link to the product I am talking about.

I believe the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is $99 as well. Same idea - two inputs (XLR or 1/4"). So again, you're going to be limited to two channels at a time.
