You'll need to get an audio interface (external soundcard) as there's no other way to record directly in to a mac book pro.
There's plenty about, can get them relativly cheap depending on what you wana spend. Just google mac soundcard or something.

Really? So on a mac book pro with only a headphone socket, you can invert that to be a mic line in?

ive also got a question about this, want to record from my decks but when i record onto logic it records it too loud so its like blurry if that makes sense, is there a way of making it quieter without turning the volum down on the mixer?

It depends on ur sound card & ur mixer. If you have an external soundcard then you should have independent volume controls on the interface itself. If you are using the internal sound card then i would reccomend going from the booth output on ur mixer into the line in on ur laptop. then technically you should be able to control the volume of the mix via the booth control knob.
