So i'm looking to purchase an mbox minijust do do some small stuff with for my own enjoyment and noticed that it has 2 channels but only one xlr. I really wanted to hook up 2 mics to it to roughly record band practices and live church sessions so that I can listen after and learn from it. So basically m question is, How much quality will I lose by hooking up a mic into the the 1/4 input using a xlr to 1/4 adapter? Or a xlr to 1/4 chord? Second question is, if I do do that would it have phantom power? Thanks for the help. I know that there are other interfaces out there, but I would really like to use an mbox to get used to protools. I've tried getting my hand on a old mbox1 but my search isn't turning out as well as I hoped and think it easier just to get an box mini since there are many floating around.
