SE sound in?

Is there a way to get sound in on an SE? I know about MIDI in, and I have an Apple Midi controller; but, I want to mix it too, and there's the rub (as the Bard would say).

So, what are the options?

SCSI looks best, if such a thing exists- can I daisy chain it into the external hard disk I have?

Serial ports are all taken up, but I don't think unplugging/switching is an issue.

ADB is out of the question.

Hmm. . .

Any thoughts?

I think what you are looking for is called a MacRecorder. It's serial, and very low quality - 8 bit at 11KHz from memory. There's no way of getting CD quality or better audio into an SE - or indeed out of it again.

On the other hand, you could try rustling up one of these:

Yamaha CBX

It's an external recorder with its own hard drive. The Mac is used for control, over SCSI, serial or MIDI. Even has two FX units inside.


Damn the Torx screws, full speed ahead!
