Looks like the only viable option is using a Q3. I better get saving!
Thanks again for all your replies!
Go for a recording interface and a webcam instead! Much more versatile, will take a load off your CPU too. Unless you plan to record in environments other than your home, in which case the Q3 will be an excellent choice.
Your cheapest option remains hooking up with midi and triggering GarageBand. You would just need a webcam to record video.
