The iO is better for the price (I've seen it for $160 while the Multimix was around $300). You may miss out on an EQ, but using a plugin is a better idea. You also get more precise control on the levels thanks to the metering. Also, there's a built in DI box in the thing (and there are preamps).

i would go with the first one, unless it doesnt have built in preamps. preamps are a must. if there not there, go with the board.
