    Sibilance is just an exaggeration of the S sound.

    What soundcard do you have?
    If you have a soundcard that only has 2 outs, getting a mixer makes more sense, as you'll need to route your headphones through the mixer as well.

    Why get a pre over a mixer though?
    Because an external pre is going to be higher quality than those found in a mixer.

    Into the line in.
    You should think about upgrading your card, as it's not made for recording.
    The cheapest card, and one of good quality, is the M-Audio Audiophile 2496, sells for around $70-90.

    Cheap Equipment = Cheap Sound
    I'd save your money.

    I don't know of any GOOD pre's under $70. I'd just suggest that you save your money and get better equipment.

    Exactly, it's better to buy each piece one at a time, and get quality, than buy em all at once and get bullshit.

    Behringer is bogus, Art pre's suck, Nady, SMPro, I can keep going, they're trash.

    i have the AT3035 and a yamaha MG10/2 mixer .. i'm very happy with both .. if u wanna peep my quality with them -- www.myspace.com/syn6

    behringer gear wont even get you anus quality hits...

    trust us, buy something decent, like say, the focusrite trackmaster pro, which is under $200 and will shit on any behringer gear

    companies like behringer make gear for people who think boards have to have tons of winky lights and flashy things to do anything, and they put more effort into that than actually making a decent product
