Audio interface for 12" Powerbook?
I just bought a new 12" pb and i love it. Im looking forward to doing some audio recording and I wondered if anybody can recommend a good simple audio interface for midi and audio. I'd really like something with a built-in preamp so that I can play my guitar directly through it. I need something that works and that wont cost me too much. Any recommendations?

15GB 3G iPod (broken, but still usably as a portable disk!)
A happy switcher since 7/19/04

M-Audio's firewire410 would probably be your best bet.
4 in, 10 out, mic\ 1/4" pre's on the front. and great drivers.
they run about $399. unfortunately getting a good all-in-one with built in preamps isn't going to fit the ultra low-cost zone.
your other option is to get a guitar preamp with line level output and use the 12" PB's built-in 1/8" input.
it IS 24bit and has 2ms latency, and is also quite under rated

If you want to hear what the standard inputs are capable of (driven by a small mixer) check out Richard MacLemale Richard told me that he has since bought an Emagic i/f but there is not a great deal of difference between them. So well done Apple!
I use an MBox which is capable of producing some pretty decent results (and comes with Pro Tools) it doesn't have a midi i/f tho.
I hope this helps.
