    Do you guys like to use a rack unit ,say a compressor or some sort of preamp, or do you like to save all the goods and go as far to say you dont use any type of modification to the sound and let the computer plug ins do all the work???

    Every one using a microphone needs at least a preamp before hitting the interface. Some people might use a compression or eq before going in the box, I dont simply because I dont have anyout board gear so I use plugins.

    If a microphone is involved, a preamp must be involved. Compression on the way in the computer I usually just use on vocals or maybe bass.

    I'll use some gentle compression on vocals & bass as they're tracked if it's nessesary... i usually save compression on drums for the plugins. All delay/modulation fx are done via software as well...
