I'm looking for a cheap and painless way to get sound input to my Quicksilver Mac. (My budget is really low on this, since I just blew more than I could afford on PB batteries.) I just want to back up my vinyl LPs and cassette tapes, not record a demo CD. I was doing it on my souped-up 6500, before I finally upgraded.
Now, as far as I know, my options are these:
1. Get an iMic, which is still selling for $40 used on Ebay, and which some people here have described as a POS.
2. Get a PCI sound card--I have the slots, just don't know a good Mac-compatible one which I might be able to get cheaply.
3. Forget the Quicksilver--record on my G3 233 powerbook, which would mean I'm back to using Analog Ripper. (Not the most easy-to-use program, and I'm not sure how well it will work at 233mhz considering it was twitchy at 450, and I have minimal HD space...but it won't cost me a nickel.)
I'd be glad to hear anyone else's recommendations, advice, opinions or comments on the subject.
