i'm sure there's not much difference between pc and mac as far as hardware goes so if you have a half decent sound card you should have a
"line-in" jack so i have a korg distortion processor and i connect guitar>korg>pc but if you have any kind of peddle, like and overdrive or
something that'll amplify you can use that i never tried straight from the guitar, i'm sure it'll work but may be very low volume so you'll need
something to amplify so if you have that you'll need a 1 quarter inch to 3.5mm adapter,
, plug that into sound card and you can use Audacity For Mac
to record and it
has a few filters and search google for "free" VST plugins, quite a few will work in audacity just make sure the vsts are for mac. good luck.
i have found over all my years on the net that free, open source applications are in abundance and something can be found for no matter what you do
and 9 times out of 10 the "free" software is usually far superior than high end commercial software but that's my experience and opinion.
