When I had my Microphone on my PC, I used mic boost, otherwise it was low. On the Mk2 can I do the same?

Don't really know what preferences you have in MK2 control pannel, but i would solve this problem with cheap preamplifier for mic. You will get even better sound from it believe me ;)

I am not so savy about audio technical devices. Could you explain to me what the preamplifier is? Is it just to boost sound? How does it basically work? and where can I get one?

Well.. it basicly make mic signal stronger. You connect it between mixer (MK2 in your case) and microphone. It is cheap and small. I have one from Behringer and it works very very good. It uses vacuum tube to amplify the signal and you can get even better sound with it.

I have that one: http://www.thomann.de/thoiw2_behringer_t1953_tube_ultragain_prodinfo.html

But that is also enough good: http://www.thomann.de/thoiw2_behringer_mic100_tube_ultragain_micpreamp_prodinfo.html

If you are from EU you can buy it there. it is better than buy new mic ;)
