First i'd like to say sorry for asking such stupid ameture questions. I always check the forums and other sources before bothering anyone, but i just cant afford to take any risks. I am looking into the M-Audio Delta 1010. First, What would my configuration have to be like to make everything work fine. Would i need to buy a few pre amps, because it doesnt mention having any built in. Second, i was always confused with the TRS connector situation. It has 8 in and out. Would i have to use a female XLR with a male TRS end if i just was goin to plug a mic straight to it. Third, I says "Analog" in and outputs. Does that make a difference. Do i have to get a A/D converter. Once again sorry for the inconvience. I dont know where else to go to answer my questions. Thanks.
