Just to second Jim's note, I am using the Echo Layla24 Laptop (PC). It works extremely well. I've been using it for location recording, SoftSynths, and sound design. They do have Mac drivers. Of course this is a $695.00 unit, so you may decide that it is too far out of your price range. A friend of mine is using the Delta 1010 (PC), and is very happy with it. I believe that they have Mac drivers as well. This is a $595.00 unit. I know that you are limited on budget, but you may want to consider buying one these units, or one with similar I/O capability. Both Echo and M-Audio have less expensive sound cards as well.
