Interface and soundboard solution?

Hello everyone,

I'm kind of looking for a solution to my mixing problem. I currently make music on my own running all of my synths and mics into a Mackie 14 channel mixer and running that into a Focusrite 18i6. The Mackie has 2 auxiliary sends which I am using for some outboard effects. I keep everything hardware except to record.

The biggest issue is if I want to send effects through my mix, I can only record 2 stereo outs into my focusrite interface. It seems to me that I should be taking advantage of 4 of the 8 inputs.

Is there a mixer that you'd suggest where I could get route different mixes to the interface or would you just go another way completely? I have heard a lot about RME interfaces. Would something like a RME Fireface UC USB be that much more of a sound improvement over my current Focusrite card?

Thanks for your help.
