    actually yes, that should work just fine.


    but.... if you are spending the money, I would juggest you get something like this, in case you actually want to put vocals in someday. you never know what you might want to do in the future!

    and with this one you can input a CD or MP3 player with rca plugs, output RCA plugs, you have a Eq, and of course the XLR input on one channel. (but that channel also has the option of a 1/4 inch input)

    did I mention that the one you were looking at is MONO only? if you are thinking of stereo (the only way to post production mixing) you need a stereo output

  2. Great! So I just use my normal instrument cable to plug my bass into the mixer, and then use the cable from Amazon to plug the mixer into the computer?
    Then just open up Garageband and go for it?

    go back and re read my post again.... I added a couple things
     
  4. Right, so I could plug in a mic with the XLR, and record from a CD/MP3 player?

    Don't know much about garageband,but audacity is an amazing editing program, it's available for mac, and its free
     
  7. Would Audacity record the audio from my bass just plugging the mixer straight into my Macbook using the Stereo Mini to Stereo 1/4" cable?

    for your first mixer you posted, the cord was correct. for the one I posted, the second cable is better

    If you're doing simple recordings, and already have a Mac with GarageBand, just grab a cheap USB of FireWire interface and you'll be all set.
