Question Connecting up hardware to my Macbook

Hi guys,

Over the years I've bought bits and pieces of hardware -

MPC1000
MicroKorg
Decks
Kaossilator
Behringer Xenyx1002 mixer

I've recently got a Macbook and would like to be able to feed all the audio from the hardware into it so I can start using Garageband etc to visualise things more.

So I'm after an audio interface, I guess USB, with midi functionality. I'm on a really small budget and I'm a hobbyist rather than super producer so nasa quality perfection isn't essential.

Any help appreciated, cheers.

Cheers, I had a butchers. Just to stress that I'm very out of my depth in this arena and that thread's also more PC focused it seems.

most interfaces are both PC and Mac, there are obviously some exceptions but this will be often stated in the specs.

if you use your mixer as a joiner for all your instruments then i have to recommend an apogee duet

no midi will need a seperate midi box or another interface, if it cant be connected via usb

something like this



the thread i referred you too previously do include audio interfaces that are all in one for your needs and work on the same principles so if you where to choose one of those it will work too, me personally i would do the duet and midi box as the duet integrates beautifully with the mac
