    you can connect external sound cards through the ExpressCard slot. otherwise it will all have to go out thru the miniature audio jack. check out this thread for more info on the external sound cards for MBP's.

    uhh no
    all of that is pro audio gear and you wouldn't use expresscard for pro audio stuff

    Use FireWire. I recommend the Focusrite Saffire LE with BALANCED 1/4" cables.

    If that is out of your budget, get any Firewire card with unbalanced ins/outs (like an M-Audio Firewire audiophile or Presonus Firebox).

    PS: I'm a well seasoned DJ/producer with a pretty involved studio setup so I'm not just blowing hot air. I'd give more info but I'm not sure anybody on a mac forum would care.

    That's not correct. The PreSonus Firebox has four balanced inputs and six balanced outputs.
