Sure have. About 300 Hymns and Melodies. Just connect the cassette's "ear" to
the Mac's "mike". Now I do use MacroMedia's SoundEdit16 Program to receive and
"edit" the input and don't know otherwise how it would be received.
SoundEdit16 is kind of pricy, and, I think, has been discontinued as a
separate Program or some such; but, in my case, it has been well worth the
price. I'm sure there are other programs available - free or share - that can
capture the sounds/music, but they probably don't have the power of
SoundEdit16, although I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find out the SoundApp
can do it for you.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know.
