Sound Studio recoding level

How do I see what is being recorded when using Sound Studio. The'que' shows it is recording but I don't see the waveform until I stop and press play.

How to begin

Which cable do I need to connect my stereo amplifier to my Imac flat screen? Where do I put both ends of this cable on my amp and my Imac? My goal is to record LP's and singles and burn them afterwards on cd. thanks Ivan
