So I know the two front ins are pres. But as far as I know the only difference is the phantom and pad controls. Is there a quality difference between my front and back ins? Should I not use the rear jacks for mics?
Gear:
Fender Telecaster w/ Dual Gibson Humbuckers
Ovation Celebrity Acoustic/Electric
Fender Frontman 212R
Band(s):
Old Too Young (Folk/Bluegrass/Punk)
The Orange Line (Stoner Metal/Punk/Alternative)

According to focusrite the converters are the same.
The difference in preamps sounds negligible.

So yeah you might use whatever inputs if your only concern is sound quality.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.
