Hi, I'm Tim Trotter, and today I'm going to how to connect a audio mixer to your MacBook Pro. With us, we have an analog mixer, there are also digital mixers as well, but those just connect simply with a USB or fire wire. To connect an analog mixer to your MacBook Pro, you're going to need some cables. This one, outputs with two quarter inch jacks. I have a cable that connects with two quarter inch jacks as well, the other end outputs with an eighth inch jack, which plugs in to your MacBook Pro, simply plug these two in and plug them in to side of your MacBook Pro and you're good to go. Alternately, you can connect using a RCA adapter, if your mixer board supports that, as it's also got a eighth inch jack on it. And that's all you need to connect your MacBook Pro to your mixer board. Thanks for watching.
