Hello everyone. I'm really hoping I can get some advice as my head has been spinning recently, so any help appreciated. My current setup is as follows: PC >> M-Audio Fast Track Pro >> Blue Bluebird Mic. I recently purchased a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro/80 Headphones, and since this purchase the Fast Track Pro has plummeted in my regard. I realised that the preamps are not particularly great and I'm considering ditching it completely and leaving it's fate in the hands of eBay! I am not at all a technical expert on the subject of pro-recording - quite the opposite, and since doing research on potential options if I were to ditch the USB interface, my head is literally spinning. Please bear with me: If I were to purchase a decent Mic PreAmp, for example the Blue Robbie (http://www.bluemic.com/robbie/), and used the line output from that to go to my pc's line input, would the audio quality still be affected by the pc because it's going through the soundcard? If so what else would I need?! The reason I've been looking into a dedicated mic preamp is because I literally only need one mic input for recording, so I thought I could get more for my money by getting a single mic preamp, rather than a decent audio interface with a lot more inputs...I just need a good raw vocal recording... Am I along the right lines? Or completely off the mark with how this works...?!
