Preamps for recording?

Are you thinking specifically of dedicated outboard preamps?

Basicly i think the quality of recording will be a lot better if you use a decent preamp and it would be a necessity for me.

What mic's do you use jim?
These, and I need a bunch more!
2 x Oktava ML52 (Factory matched)
2 x Beyer M201
Audio Technica Pro37R
" " AT2020 (not great but it only cost me £50)
A couple of pretty terrible, noisy omni's that I use as room mic's

in the motu thread I queried about drum recording via the motu due to only having two preamped xlr inputs, I'm presuming the only way to record from more than 2 mic sources would be to add on a unit like the behringer ada8000.. 8 preamps over adat for about 150 quid which isn't too bad (and extends my live recordings up to a ridiculous amount of inputs). I read the preamps are pretty transparent.. would the combination of the motu and the behringer work pretty good together given I don't want to spend loads and its only for hobby stuff really (odd demo recording with borrowed mics and live stuff).
I'm looking to put the two units into a 3u warwick rockbag for easy transportation, given theres a unit spare is there anything else I should consider for the future that the macbook can't do (given I have pretty good sources for software and have things like guitar rig etc)

As for the the other rack space - Dunno. A half decent limiter/compressor?

that's not to say some parts are weighted more than others, they certainly are. but as a general rule, ^^^ applies.
