Yup, I use a mixer. It comes from the days when the daw would send midi data to outboard synths that could then be recorded as audio to multitrack. VTS's are more prolific and computers more powerful so we don't do it much now.

I still like to have an outboard mixer permanently set up with a DI for electric guitars and phantom power for condensers.

It's plugged into my M-audio Audiophile 2496 PCI card, but I can also patch in an outboard compressor and use the s/pdif out into the sound card for more flexibility and four channels on one card.
