But what kind of ends are on your cardiod mics? If you have XLR then you
need a mixer with proper gain control. But if you get a good interface you
can use software on the input to increase the gain.

That said, I have a condenser mic that I used to use directly into my
interface (MOTU Traveler) and use the input controls in Cubase to control
the sound. Lately Iâve been playing with the live input sound and prefer to
use my Art Tube MP to provide phantom power to the mic, and run through an
RNC compressor before the MOTU input channel. That provides initial
compression to not overload the input in the recording.
