I was wondering if someone could hook me up with an inexpensive way to connect my instruments to a macbook. I'm a college student and I was stoked when my girl got a new macbook with garage band. I'm looking to record some samples for my metal band so we can get out in the world.

I don't really need anything anything fancy at this point, just something that can record with good quality. I'm okay with recording one feed at a time and I absolutely can't afford anything over $150 at the moment.

I know I could just use google/amazon, but I would like to get some real life opinions on what works well with macbooks, GB, and is worth the money I spend on it in general.

Thanks in advance

Try the RP250 out. I've used Digitech products through the years and find them to be high quality. This guy should do well for you!
