Hi, I have been recording live concerts with the presonus 32 ai mixer and capture to work them later on studio one 4 ready to mastering. The thing is I want to achieve to record more professional sound using external preamps during performances. I bought a focusrite clarett octopre preamp to run the vocals through it. What could be the proper way to use external preamps for this aplications. I have heard that you can bypass the mixers preamps if you connect the instruments to the line in inputs. Not sure if this is the case with presonus mixers and I would like to know if would be recommended to bypass the mixer preamps and only use the external preamp or double preamp everything.
Also would like recommendations on the gain controls of the console and ext. preamp
Will appreciate any knowledge on this, thanks!
