    I can get a delta 1010 lt off ebay for under 200 dollars, and then i get 10 inputs, 2 with mic preamps. i run into a problem. all the inputs but the xlr's with preamps are stereo blanced rca inputs. could i possibly run line level output from a preamp, and use 1/4" to 1/8" converters, then connect 1/8" to rca cables, or would this cause latency/distortion.
    also, has anyone ever heard of someone making a custom breakout box for the 1010 lt, because its such a tangle, i might have to make one myself if none are availible.

    you won't get any latency issues using connector convertors and it shouldn't affect the signal quality if the connectors are clean.
