Just keep in mind that you are limited in how many tracks you can recorded SIMULTANEOUSLY by the input device. Overdubbing gives you access to every track your program can create, but if you want to record 8 tracks at the same time, you need in input device with 8 inputs. A workaround if you only have a stereo input device like an M-Audio M-Track or an ART USB Dual Tube Pre is to use a mixer and run left/right into the two channels. This, of course, messes up the ability to fix a single track in post-production.Jedaks wrote: ↑Sat Sep 02, 2017 9:26 pmThanks for the replies, it has helped a lot.
As well as classical music, we also play mainstream stuff. I wanted a way to simultaneously record two amplifiers and two vocal microphones but I just didn't know if GarageBand was capable of that. Now I know. Cheers
Use the amp as a pre amplifier for the microphone. mic -> xlr cable -> amp channel 1 input . Amp Phones out -> minijack cable -> laptop mic/line in.fast eddie wrote: ↑Sat Jul 07, 2018 1:17 amI am new at this and do not know how to interface my dynamic microphone ( SM 58) with my mac book Pro laptop (running Finder 10.13). I also have a Fender Acoustasonic 15 amp. I would like to do some home recording. I am trying to figure out how to input the microphone to the laptop and use Garage Band (10.3.1). Any help is appreciated.
for somewhat better audio quality, the next thing you might want to try an audio interface "breakout box". They arent too expensive. Most have XLR, 1/4", and USB connections, and even the cheaper ones usually supply phantom power if you have a condenser mic. I use an older one by M-Audio and it works great.fast eddie wrote: ↑Sun Jul 08, 2018 3:49 amThanks. Will try that tomorrow.
Tonight I did this:
Sure SM 58 mic -> macbook pro mic input (using pigtail connector) -> GarageBand -> back out from laptop -> Fender amp ch.2 input .
I used a pigtail 1/8 " (??) connectors to connect both input and output to my laptop.
Hope this makes sense. Seems to work. I will try your suggestion tomorrow.
