    Q. Do I really need to buy a channel strip?

    I often see reviews for mic preamps and channel strips in SOS and I'm wondering if I need one. I currently plug a condenser mic into a small mixer, which provides phantom power, which then feeds into my M-Audio Delta soundcard. Is there a good reason to pay money for a box that seems to do something I am already able to do?

    Q. How much gain do I need from a preamp?

    Reading the specifications of various mic preamps, I notice that the amount of gain that different models provide seems to vary quite a lot. How much gain do I realistically need for using run-of-the-mill dynamic and condenser mics?
