    You could record and edit the violin and other instruments with Audacity or something similar, and then you could put together the compilation with the other instruments in GarageBand. That would be the easiest (and cheapest) way to do it.

    If your looking for cheap, then without a doubt you want to use Garageband.

    Stick with Garageband, and spend the money on a microphone.

    Cubase is brilliant. I use that for doing recordings with my band.

    If you are serious about doing recordings, you can buy a FireWire mixer that lets you record near close studio quality sound.

    I own this: http://www.zzounds.com/item--ALEMULTIMIX8FW

    Note: It comes with Cubase SX - not the best version of Cubase, rather the basic one but lets you do some pretty professional recordings.

    If you have the cash to splash out, a lot of professional studios use Apple's Logic Pro.

    But if you are on the cheap, consider that mixer (avoid the USB one, doesn't provide high bit rates that firewire does).

    A worthy investment and great fun too.
