No - it's certainly optional.  The Audio Buddy is just a cheap,
two-channel mic-pre.  The manual for the Delta44 probably includes that
in the diagram so there's a mic example for the soundcard.

Nope - you'll be using the pre's on your mixer this way, and then line
level out to the Delta44.  Should work fine.

For what it's worth though, I've listened to some recordings with the
Audio Buddy (at www.thelisteningsessions.com, which you should all go
check out) and for a cheap pre, it sounds damn nice.
Anyone here have one?  Any comments on it?
