Neve Portico 5012 Duo Mic Preamp? I don't think that I am ready for something like this ITFP but... Right now I use cheap interfaces like the Firepod and a little Tascam thing. But I have a chance to get one of these 5012s maybe for an excellent price. So I know this: - The 5012 is not an 'interface.' - The firepod and the tascam thing are and have A/D converters built in. - The 5012 has no A/D converter. That is about all I know. I am trying to imagine how my tracking chain would change. Right now it's simply: Mic > interface > Macbook Pro. I am thinking my chain would have to become something similar to: Mic > 5012 > A/D converter > MBP? I am sure there is something that I am missing here.
