Heil PR40 in to a NON-TRRS MacBook Air

asked Jun 6, 2020 in AudioBox USB by clintbradford (150 points)
USED to use the wonderful ProSonus TubePRE with a genuine TungSol tube in to the MIC INPUT of my glorious 17" MacBook Pro to achieve enviable voice quality ...

But now I need to have similar great quality on a 13" 2015-era MacBook Air (Mojave) WITHOUT TRRS capability. Just for Zoom and other services ... and podcasting.

I love the voice quality of the TUBEPre ... Can I add a AudioBox USB 96 and plug in to ky MacBook Air and be "happy?"

PLEASE do not recommend that I replace my HEIL PR40 microphone. Just tell me if there is a PreSonus solution to connecting it to my MacBook Air,

Just turn down the input on the Audiobox input hard left, then you can use the output of your pre-amp into the AudioBox.
