Hello - I'm another new user. I have a dozen or so old Jazz master reel-to-reel stereo tapes that I helped to record in the 70's. They still are in perfect condition, but won't last forever. They are very high quality professional recordings that I want to convert to digital. I have a first class stereo tape deck capable of superb audio playback. I really don't want to spend a lot of time learning a new occupation, and would like a high quality interface and software that is really easy to use. Top quality is more important than the cheapest price, but I don't want to overspend on this for a one time project. Should I look for a sound card or external audio interface? I tried the inputs on my mac pro, but was really disappointed. I was hoping it would be possible to find the right equipment for a few hundred dollars or less. Any advice would be appreciated!
