A. Absolutely. If you have a Line-In on your computer, all you need is a cable that has a stereo 1/8” plug on one side, and a pair of RCA connectors on the other, or a 1/8" (3.5mm) to 1/8" , if that's what your player uses. If your computer doesn’t have a Line-In you’ll need a USB or FireWire Audio Interface. From there, follow these simple steps:
Assuming you have a Line-In...
1. Plug the Cassette Deck,CD Player, etc into your Line-In on your Mac
2. Set your Mac to record from the Line-In
3. Create a New Basic track and hit record
4. There is no 4.
