8 track tape machine to ensemble

Hello everyone,

I am about to get my Otari MX5050 8 track tape machine running and I want to have its output transferred directly to my computer. This is the rough plan:

music->8 mics->8 channel mic pre->MX5050->apogee ensemple->computer

my question is about the apogee ensemble (that I don't own at the moment). I am looking at its specs and it says it has 4 mic pres and 8 channels. so....can I use the ensemble or will I need to have the 8 tracks from the MX5050 go through 8 mic pres to go to the box?
