It seems like I remember someone telling me that it is possible to run a mic straight to your macbook via an adapter. Can anyone tell me what this is called? Where I can get one? Price?

all depends on what kind of mic you want. they make XLR to mini adapters, but ive never had good luck with them. some mics have a 1/4 stereo or mono plug. for that youd have to get a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter. ive had problems with these too, the come loose prety easily. there are also USB mics. ive actually been really surprised at the quality from these. hope this helps.
