Try looking at the Alesis ZoneMix 6 (and the Numark RM-6 -- which is
identical except for the branding).
It's a 1U rackmount mixer with six stereo inputs. It's designed for
DJ's and installations, so any input can be routed or summed to
either of two busses, A and/or B. Each channel has a switch for
routing to A, B, or A+B; as well as individual volume and mute
controls. Each bus is fully stereo with its own EQ, Pan, and Mute
I merely designate one of the busses for an Effect Send, and the
other for the Mains. Then I route the Effect Returns back into
individual channels. The only annoyance is that the unbalanced I/O
is on RCA jacks. It's built well and there are plenty of jacks,
though, so it turns out to be a pretty flexible configuration.
They've been discontinued for a while, but still pop up on Ebay for
