Yamaha Motif 8/Piano recording question

Currently I have a Yamaha motif 8, and i am looking to get a better recording out of it. Its ultimately going into a Delta 1010, but I have a question about preamps. Should I have it preamped before it hits the Delta? I was looking for a gain in the signal, but I am more concerned with a clean clean sound coming thru, especially when using different voices.

Also, if I am using a 2 channel preamp, say the ART TPS II, I should be running the left and right from the motif into each channel of the preamp correct, to get the stereo sound?

Sorry for the basic questions, but I am new to the world of preamps, etc.

Thanks for any help. I love this site!
