    Only need to record mixes. Currently have a M-Audio - Fast Track Pro - doesnt record to audacity, drivers cause all sorts of bugs. Have to restart the laptop everytime i hit record for it to work.

    so here i feel is the solution..

    Can anyone reccomend anything better?

    So fucking shit how MAC dont allow you to change the headphone jack to an input. grands worth of laptop that doesnt do HALF of what a windows laptop does.

    i think you can change the headphone jack. don't quote me on that tho as i've never tried myself.

    i have one of those behstinger usb things you posted. its not bad actually. i'm sure a more expensive one might produce better quality audio, but all my mixes have been recorded using it and i don't think they sound too shabby in comparison to other mixes i've listened to. would recommend one.

    They do. BUT only on previous macbook's. the old 13'' and 15'' macbook pro's work fine, however the new 13''and 15'' macbook pro's Retina blah blah dont! they took the feature away.

    Tie a tape recorder to your Mac with elastic bands.

    Saffire 6 USB. Amazing quality etc... Bit pricey but you definitely can't go wrong with it.
