My 2012 15" MBP has Stereo Line Out (Headphones) and Stereo Line-In.

Image

I use the Stereo Line-In (on the left) to record my analog mixer and anything else I need. It appears as "Built-In Input" in the Mac setups.

However. Only the 15" and 17" had that. The 13" had one connection that you had to manually switch between Stereo-Out and Stereo-In. Not both at once.

So if the DDJ SB2 is just a controller for the software on the Mac, then you may need a USB adapter with both connections such as the Behringer UCA-202.

I'm guessing on some of this, but one of our production assistants had something like this and I think that's how he did it.
