Do I need a preamp in order to record successfully with this device?

I was going to use the instrument input to record both bass guitar and my acoustic/electric. I know it can handle my A/E but I'm a little worried about my bass. It has passive pickups, so will I need to run a cable from my amp output in order for it to pickup sound good enough for Garageband?

    No. ONE has a built in mic pre. Just turn up the gain accordingly and you'll be set.
