    I was wondering what kind of software (Audacity, Logic, Garageband?) and hardware (not too expensive...) I could use to capture audio from an audio mixer. I don't have the exact name of the mixer at hand (we're using an alternative to our GL2400). I don't usually record audio, I just mix and such, so thanks for the help.

    Any of the programs you mention would work. If you want simple stereo input, you could even try your MacBook's built-in line in to see what the results are like. There are also tons of FireWire and USB audio interfaces on the market if you need more control or channels, it all really comes down to how much you want to spend on this :)

    yeah, I knew about my line-in port (I've wanted one for ages.. the iBooks really needed them!) but what kind of device would you recommend for the capturing? I've seen people do it by using a cable (I can't remember the name-- help?) with one end like a headphone jack and putting that into the monitor port on the mixer and then the other end is a line-in which goes to the computer..
