Use your Mac as an amplifier
Authored by: vonkas on Dec 16, '03 08:22:13PM

If you have a recent Mac (pre-installed Jaguar and up) you can also use your Mac as a recorder with sophisiticated multi-track editing & dubbing facilities - Sound Recorder is the app to use. The cheapest and most fully featured Mac for audio/MIDI is, by the way the eMac - it's the only one left with analogue line in.

This is no longer true. I have a Dual-2GHz G5 and it has both analog and digital line in. I use the analog in all the time to record radio shows.

Yup. G5, and PowerBooks too

The powerbook family also has line in.

Use your Mac as an amplifier

Hi all. I have an eMac 1Ghz, and I use it to record and mix music. The BEST way to get guitar into your mac, well, there are a couple of ways, but the common item in them all is a powered mixer. you can plug that into the line in, and the guitar will plug into the mixer directly (balanced line in) or, plug the line out from any amp into the line in (if you don't have a mixer) and for the best sound of all, of course, is mic the amp into the mixer, into the mac. I use Digital Performer 4, it's the best. Highly recommened.
