Recording drums, Finding the right mixer

I'm looking to record drums through my delta. I've got ten ins and would like a mixing board with at least 7 direct outs, no bussing, straight from the channel. Don't have much cash and would like something a bit older. I found the Peavey xr-700 that looks cool and like it would work. Would it, and do you know any other good ones to check out?

Please help, I'm losing sleep.

Thanks

The Peavey XR-700 is a powered mixer. If you're not using it for a live PA, you should save the money and not get a powered mixer. That $ could be better used on a different mixer. There are lots of them to choose from, you need one that has 8 direct outputs. Make sure the direct output is a dedicated jack, not a reused insert jack. I've listed a few here:

...but that list isn't very comprehensive and covers some much larger mixers. Check out this dealer for more ideas:
