A Quick Primer on Mixers:
A 2+2 bus mixer typically has both main stereo outs and an "alt 3-4" or "subgroups out" for connecting to a soundcard. These are fine for using a computer as a recorder. Stereo mixers do not have this bus. I do not recommend them for computer multi-track recording A 4-bus mixer typically has main stereo outs plus two alt or subgroup busses. These are great if you have a soundcard or audio interface with more than 2 inputs.  However, some manufacturers call their 2+2 mixer 4-bus mixers because they count the main outs as 2 and the alt bus as two more.  So  be careful you might find some 2+2 mixers lurking the in zzounds 4-bus category.

The Allen and Heath ZED-14 has a fantastic pedigree which comes from nearly 40 years of making mixing desks for the professional sound community.

Allen and Heath ZED436 36-Channel Mixer with USB Interface
The ZED 4-Bus series takes inspiration from different product lines within the A&H range, combining them with fresh new ideas to give stunning results in a neat and easy to use package. The padless DuoPreTM mic/line pre-amplifier is the new design first implemented on the ZED-14 and delivers a high-headroom, low-noise signal. The 4 band, 2 sweep EQ, along with the low noise summing amps, is borrowed from the acclaimed GL2400, while the bus architecture is a simplified, but equally comprehensive, version of that employed in the successful GL series.
