So i got a touch question for the pros I want to upgrade my current setup that I have ( at3035 mic, m-audio firewire solo ) I am probably going to get the SM7B mic but my question isn't with mics I want to spend less than $800 I want a good preamp or audio device People were saying since my M-Audio Firewire Solo is so horrible then a good preamp really won't do any good So my first thought was i could replace it with something that has a good preamp built in like the RME babyface or the duet2 But then I read this "Professionals that are concerned with the quality of digital analog conversion will buy an outboard DAC that connects to that interface's digital input/outputs. These effectively bypass the DACs on the interface." Does that mean that I can still use the M-audio device and without it effecting the sound and basically bypass it? This way I can spend all my money on a good preamp? Anyone know what I should do??? Been trying to find out for days so any info would be awesome Thanks guys!!!
