Hi Guys, I've been reading and searching topics on preamps and the use of them. I want to record some Guitars and Vocals through my Audigy 4 but want to know if a mic preamp can also be used as a guitar preamp? I have plugged my guitar straight in the Line2/Mic input and it seems to record pretty damn well! Do I really NEED a preamp? What is the cheapest good preamp one can buy. Last question, is it OK to record Bass guitar through the soundcard/preamp too? Thanks for all the info and advise!
