The product description declares that it is ready for the Mac right out of the box.

It helped me "idealize" my ASIO4ALL setup, but did not help with the glitches in Guitar Rig 3, which has more to do with my audio card, and no fault of the Lightsnake.

Then I plugged in my electric guitar and was fully able to adjust the input volume.

... Provided you follow the directions. The people writing the bad reviews of this product seem to have difficulty reading the very specific directions regarding how to get your computer to recognize it. For Garageband, the easiest way is to plug the cord in BEFORE you open Garageband, then open Garageband and open Preferences ... then go to the audio plug-in. Garageband won't recognize it, but you can still use it. It just won't have an officially recognized name.

The product itself works well, given the price, however I found that it had a tendency to sit loose inside the guitar jack, not tight like a typical high-end guitar chord. What does that mean? It means you have to sit still while you're recording. If you move too much, the jack might come loose and your recording will pick up a very audible "CLICK." Other than that, the quality is quite decent.

This cable does what it's supposed to. I've heard many people just give up on this product without actually getting it to work in the first place. Yes it's true that the company who makes the lightsnake cable declares it as plug and play but that doesn't mean you can pop open any program. With that being said I have gotten this product to work on Mac OSX10, Vista, and XP. Furthermore I have also gotten this cable to record using Adobe Audition, Sony Acid pro 6 and GarageBand. The trick to making this work on XP/Vista is a driver called ASIO4All which will then let you select the usb cable as an input. Use google to answer your questions before giving a bad review. For the price the quality is great and I'd recommend it.

I have used this cable with both my guitar and my keyboard and I have very few gripes with this product.

Pros:
-Excellent Quality (See Cons)
-Simple To Use
-It GLOWS!

Cons:
-While the quality was amazing for my guitar, the keyboard had a TON of static and lowered quality. This may have been the keyboard, but I'm pretty sure it isn't.
-Sometimes (very rare), even the littlest movement will cause static or popping.
-This may just be my amp, but the cord refuses to work with the headphone port of my distortion amp.

This was an overall good buy, and it's useful for home-studios IF you use computers for mastering/recording/producing. It works on my PC w/FL Studio 8 and on my Mac w/Garage Band.

I have used this cable for a few years for recording my Casio electronic piano onto my computer and I love it. Once you set it up for the first time, it is quick and easy to use with a nice sound quality.

My lightsnake usb cable started giving trouble all of a sudden... it worked great while it did, but a few days ago I noticed the LED light on the 1/4 jack end stopped lighting... whenever I use it on applications, there's this extremely loud hiss (noise) that I cant get rid off... I really had faith in this cable. :(...

Took it out of the box, hoping to use it with Waves Gtr, Digital performer, on my Macbook pro
theres a constant buzz, and ticking the same speed as the blinking green krytonite LED
in digital performer, you can use it as an input, but can't change the output to another source.
Waves GTR would not recognize it.
the only thing that would was Garage band,
I tried the 1/4" to 1/8" adapter, and it worked fine, but you can get that for $10.00 at Radio shack.

I had high hopes for the Lightsnake. But, it gave no improvement in speed or functionality versus simply plugging in a guitar cord with a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter into the "line in" jack on my computer. I was using Guitar Rig 3, and the processing power to deal with the digital signal with ASIO4ALL gave actually LESS performance (meaning more glitches, dropsouts) than the straight analog pathway.

Yes, the blinking light is kinda cool, but only for a few minutes. Better to sound good, than look cool. All bling and no talent is someone we call a poseur.

I guess if someone didn't have an input jack for an analog signal, or if it was inconvenient to plug something in the back of the computer (with USB in front), the Lightsnake would be the only way to get the signal into the computer.

The customer service was fast to respond with some ideas to help, and others have had similar glitches posted on the active company forum. After a phone call to customer service, they forwarded a weblink to help with Guitar Rig 3 processing.

It helped me "idealize" my ASIO4ALL setup, but did not help with the glitches in Guitar Rig 3, which has more to do with my audio card, and no fault of the Lightsnake. Just be warned, though, that buying the Lightsnake to "cure" some problem will probably end in frustration.

Cheers,
Doc

I bought this on Ebay and it works well with the New Gen Macbook Pro's 2007 models but as soon as I started recording to Garageband it would make a irritating clicking sound which I believe is from the blinking green light.I have read another review from a buyer having the same problem.Tech states this is a defect so will see if this hold true or is a software problem with Mac's.I am and will buy another to see if this noise goes away.Overall its great to lay tracks down but having a super fast comp is the key.
