I used to own some very well-known, high-end preamps that are known for their transparency, their accuracy and their use in classical recording, and this one has them all beat. It's wonderful, and at the level of Gordon Audio mic preamps in terms of sound quality.
My simple question will reveal my ignorance in this topic: What does a preamp do? Do I need one to record my guitar?
Right now I've spent quite a bit of time trying to learn the basics of Studio One 3, the professional version.
I have a pair of AKG C214 microphones attached to a Presonus AudioBox USB 2x2 Audio interface (I'm copying this from the label)
and whatever I manage to record goes into my MacBook Pro.
With all this stuff in my bedroom, do I still need a preamp?
Any help will be really appreciated.
However, you'll quickly loose me if you use Audio Engineering tech lingo like "34XlM port" this and "GRT C37 comp" that, or "56RNB Sync", etc.
