I'm new to the whole music recording industry, but coming from a digital video background I have worked with sound a little. Bottomline of my question is if I use a preamp such as so http://www.speck.com/mp50/mp50.shtml And run it into an analog board like so http:// if I ran it into the mixers preamp is it going to change the sound or add color? Or will it retain the sound coming from the first mic pre. If it doesn’t is the answer to run it thru the TRS input jack. Last question does going thru a TRS jack verses XLR compromise the quality?
