8pre and Preamp? Audio Interfaces

8pre and Preamp?

Hi there,

Do you think I need a Motu 8pre AND and preamp, or is there no point in having a preamp as well as the Motu? I have a very basic setup and the 8pre is my only audio interface!

If your only goal is to get sound in your computer, the 8Pre will do. If you want it to sound better, buy a preamp that's better than the 8Pre.

I'm assuming that the 8Pre has the same preamps as the 828mkII. They are pretty flat sounding, but aren't the worst thing to use. I wouldn't use them for the more important tracks in a mix.

I'd bet you'd be happy if you sent it off to Black Lion Audio and let them work it over.
