I'm a drummer and I'm gonna be recording my drums and other instruments... I have the Motu 8pre interface and an 8 channel mixer with 8 direct outs. Now I don't want to keep having to plug and unplug mics and cables from the Motu so I was thinking... Have everything go into the mixer and then keep the 8 direct outs going into the back of the Motu. It sounds good but these are some questions I have... The direct outs are quarter inch so will I be losing quality from the mics if I use this setup? and For my condensors will the phantom power have to be on the channels on the mixer and the motu? just the mixer? just the motu? Will this even work? lol Thanks.
