Does having multiple connections beetween mic and preamp and preamp and interface make a difference with sound quality? It cant be easy to make a mic cable come into your studio and plug into your preamp and then out of your preamp and into my interface. Can I put a couple of patchbays in there? If I patch all my preamp sends and returns to the front of my rack and my interface inputs into the front of my rack as well, mics go in nice and easy, comes out and into whatever channel of interface I want it to. Does adding extra connections like this sacrifice sound quality? I realize I might be sacrificing reliablity and making it awfully hard to find a bad cable, but it would be about 100 times easier.
