Hi, Im SlimCognito of Poor Man's Productions. I am constantly on the edge of poverty and have but a small and modest basement setup. Im running my projects off of a quite efficient laptop. My question is about interfacing. Im using an M-Audio Mobile pre to do work on the laptop and its getting the job done. The problem is I have a FEW pieces of equipment and only 2 inputs on the MobilePre (left and right). The other problem is - its made by M-Audio. I am looklng at the MOTU Ultralite as an upgrade because it has more input channels and I really like unicorns, however, its a fairly new piece of equipment and I dont really trust the feedback on these sales sites. Can anyone offer any solace before I put up $500 of hard earned drug money for this thing? We wants it. :twisted: o and another question - i have an MXL V67 Mogami Edition mic - and i was thinking of getting the behringer T1953 preamp to help it out a bit. Worth it or not? Remember Im poor.... I would thank anyone who responds... Slim.
