    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.
