    hi, i am still very new to all of this so bear with me.

    i am looking to record a full drum kit with 8 mics max all using XLR jacks- i know the Motu has the capability to do that- it has exactly 8 xlr inputs with pre-amps in- but what are the quality of these pre-amps like - pre-amps just amplify the input signal right? so i guess you cant record unless you use pre-amps or can you? if i do need em is it worth buying another piece of hardware to get better pre-amps?

    the Tascam has 8 inputs but doesnt specify whether it has pre-amps for em...................i am a little confused over the subject of mic pre-amps etc.

    and concerning these two pieces of hardware- will they both work either on a mac running logic or a pc running cubase?

    thankyou and goodnight!.
