Hi, Luis! Answering your query: I'm not expert but can answer this one. A mike preamp will have a line output connection - supplying plain audio, of fairly good strength, much more than a mike. The appropriate connection therefore is the line input of your computer (never the mike input, as that will overload and distort). Some horrible mini-computers do not have a line input, only a poor quality mike input. You may have to go into a 'mixer' section of a pc to select line input, or to the Preferences tab of recording software to select external input rather than internal mike.
Next, to record, your computer needs suitable software. Audacity is a free download, suitable for pc and Mac, which will record and let you edit, as well as apply compression and equalisation if you like to use those. I certainly do, within reason! The Mac can record as it stands, using Garageband, but that application is not nimble enough for VO, in my view.
Many people take a different route by using a USB mike. This has a preamp built in, as well as the electronics needed to turn your golden voice into digits which a computer can record. I think most come with a disc of some sort to set your computer up to accept this.
A USB mike can be a way to gain the convenience of a mini-computer, and still get good sound, if not quite top notch. As a step up frpm the USB mike, there are also various black boxes that can fit between an ordinary mic and your computer, and do a better job of creating digits than what's in the pc. Or so they say.
Can't answer more without knowing what you are using at present.
