I’ve recently been hired to work with a company to do live 48 channel recordings from a music festival. They currently use 2 uTrack 24’s synced together, but are running Behringer 8 Pre mic preamplifier units in front of them to send a line level signal to the uTrack D-sub connectors. Are the mic Pre units necessary? Couldn’t we just use XLR > D-Sub for putting in signal from stage split?
The uTrack24 has no mic preamp inside it able to handle +20dBu input signal on the inputs which has no gain control option. For this reason to keep the best signal to noise ratio better to use mic pre-amps on the inputs.
