    First, read the Sticky thread at the top of this forum

    You can use a 2xRCA to 3.5mm stereo plug cable to connect the mixer to the line input of the Mac. Or you can get a USB or Firewire interface, starting with the Griffin iMic.

    The cable would go from the line outs of the mixer (L and R) to the line input Jack of the Mac

    you just need a cable like this to go from the record output (might be called booth/main2) of your mixer into the line in on your macbook (the line in looks like this: >o<).

    i use audio hijack pro for recording mixes... could try that out, search for it on http://www.macupdate.com
