Hey guys. I do all my recording through a crappy little M-Audio mobile-pre. Well, my mom bought me a 4 channel mixer for christmas. This is nice, but I'm wondering if I really need it since I basically do all my EQing on my DAW with Adobe Audition. Right now, the only benefit I can see to having it is that it has 4 mic inputs, which would be nice to have when I need to record some drums. Other than that, it just kinda looks nice sitting on my desk. So what do you think? Does it matter if I EQ before or after I record? I never really record more than 2 tracks at a time, except that I can forsee needing to do more when I get around to the drums....Confusion.
