Yes, the 3204 is an excellent mixer, good for people who have lots of
synths. My roommate used to use one for his (all synth) band. The
best part is how compact they are for what you get (4 or 5 rack spaces,
I forget). The only thing that might put you off, if you're not an all
electronic type, is only having 2 mic preamps. But the only thing I
ever use a mic preamp for, is to adjust the level coming out of the
MOTM system! :)

I use a 1202, but if you have more than three or four synths and you
don't want to be patching and unpatching all the time, the 3204 is
probably much the better choice.
