Metric halo uln-8 with an external preamp

Hi everybody

It is about recording vocals.

I want to connect an external channelstrip "tube tech MEC1A" to the interface "Metric Halo uln-8". I'd like rather to use the channelstrip's sound and of course to get the most out of it.

What is the best way to connect these devices and set the gain properly?
ULN-8 has 8 analog preamp INs.
How to override them and use only AD/DA? And do I need to override them at all? Just turn off the phantom power?
Should I use the LINE INs instead of MIC INs on ULN-8? Does this matter?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You can just run the output of the TubeTech into a line in on the ULN, and you should be all set - that bypasses the ULN preamps and phantom power and all. Of course you'll want to pay attention to gain staging to make sure you get the sound you want from the TubeTech and are sending a suitable level of signal to the ULN.

Thanks!

Gonna try this out, as soon as my line-cable has arrived (currently I got XLR INs only)

Another Question: Can I record on 8 XLR channels and some lineIn channels simultaneously? I mean, for the lineIns I don't need inbox preamps, coz I use outboard preamps. Or 8 analog channels simultaneously is a maximum?
Thanks!
