Hey I have a audiobox Itwo and a Studio Technologies mic preamp and just wanted to know where to plug it up on the itwo. Do I plug it in a mic input, the line/instrument input? And if I use the line/instrument input do I use it as a line or a instrument with the instrument button engaged?

If your preamp is outputting a line level signal, you'll want to plug it into the inputs via a 1/4" connection. You want to be sure that your input source button is not engaged, for when the button is not illuminated, the input will accept a line-level source. Plugging a line-level source into the instrument inputs not only risks damage to these inputs but also results in a very loud and often distorted audio signal.
