    Default Audio8 + APC40 instead of studio mixer?

    So you may have read my threads about me getting free shit from my dad to set up a home studio, but im wondering, instead of buying a studio mixer can i not just use my audio8 for inputs and the APC for levels and such.

    Im guessing the outputs for an electric guitar will be quiet so will i need a pre-amp or does the A8 do it for me? and same with the mic, or does the C channel have a pre-amp built in since its made for mics.
