    Or better yet, use the digital audio output (called SPDIF) out of your computer and plug it into the AES/EBU digital audio input of your Tricaster. All Macs have digital audio output (either as 1/8 combo jacks on the MacBooks/iMacs/Minis or as combo Toslink jacks on the Mac Pros) and many PC's have them as well.

    Although the AES/EBU spec is different from SPDIF (professional vs. consumer) I've found that the Tricaster has no problem locking to a SPDIF signal. If the SPDIF output on your computer is optical (such as the case with the macs) a simple and inexpensive Optical-to-Coaxial converter may be used: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2 For 1/8 combo toslink, you would need this cable: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

    Great suggestion. Did not know that about the Mac having digital out. Thanks for the heads up.
