The ISAs are very good pres. The Octopres are also very good for the money.

EDIT Just to clarify, when you plug the mixer out's in are you making sure the inputs are set to line rather than mic?

Could be clipping as you're sending the mixer output at line level into the interface mic pres.

Try going into a line input if one exists.
