Howdy, I've been looking all over the internet trying to understand this, so I wouldn't have to bug you nice folks. Can I plug an MXL 990 Cardioid Condenser Mic into an ART Tube MP preamp and then into my G5 to record a vocal track into GarageBand? It would appear all I would need is a lil' adapter to get from 1/4" to 1/8". Seems simple enough, right? I am looking for a cheap way to get a decent sounding vocal track. My singing voice isn't worth more than a $120 total for mic and preamp. I was just curious if this even works. I suppose I could always wait for Apple to roll out their "Jam Box" and splurge. Thanks, people!
