Changing The Headphone Output into a Mic Input.

Some Macbook Pro's have a dual 3.5mm jack port. This allows you to change it from being a headphone output, into a Microphone input.

If you don't have a dual port, you can simply use the line in input without any sound preference configuration. 

Here is how you do it:

1. Click the APPLE in the top left hand corner of your desktop.


3. Open the SOUND preference window.

4. Navigate along to the INPUT tab.
5. You will see a drop down menu “use audio port for: ”  Drop this menu down and select “SOUND INPUT”.

6.  Close the sound preference window.

The Macbook Pro 3.5mm port is now setup as a MIC INPUT, and you are now ready to start using Audacity, by following the instructions on page 2.
