  1. GarageBand Interface Recording issue

    Sorted It was the crappy Ashdown Mibass Interface Bought a Focusrite Scarlett Solo..so simple to use and listen to this. P Bass into an Ampeg SCR DI, into a Boss Fender 63 Reverb, into my Ampeg V4B, XLR out into the Focusright, into GarageBand and using its virtual 60s Combo amp Not bad for my first recording with a DAW if I do say so myself lol https://youtu.be/LAY9GtI3REc
  2. GarageBand Interface Recording issue

    [quote name='Che' timestamp='1445260672' post='2889993'] Please give the Behringer U-Phoria UM2 a try. I have it and it is awesome yet very cheap at Thomann. [/quote] Looks and sounds good Che I had a behringer DI for about £25 and it was as good if not better than my Ampeg SCR DI so I'm interested in it. So if I just wanted to plug my bass into it, 1/4 in and listen through headphones direct? If I wanted to use my Amp.... 1/4 jack into the line input and listen through headphones to the bass and the track in GarageBand ?
  3. GarageBand Interface Recording issue

    It's just plug and play without drivers but I'm thinking of the Focusrite Scarlett Solo Audio Interface :-) something really simple for a really simple bass player lol
  4. GarageBand Interface Recording issue

    Hi Guys, I'm trying to record a track from my bass via an Ashdown Mibass interface. I've recorded 2 bass tracks of the same song and neither are good. I'm using the interface as input and a Bluetooth speaker as an output. The first track ... Just plugged my P Bass straight into the interface and then usb into the iMac. Generally sounds good but crackles on occasion and ruins the track. Even though I pressed the hear self button in preferences, couldn't hear any bass and effectively recorded blind. The second track.... Bass plugged into an Ampeg V4B XLR out and instrument jack plug into the interface and usb into the iMac. When you select a new track you get a lot of feedback or noise straight away that stays throughout the whole recording and the level not so good as the first track.... Crackling as well but at least I could hear myself as it was recording. Any ideas and do you think maybe a 24 bit interface would be better? If so can you recommend another interface that will give me a good recording and simple to use. I just want to play my ampeg into it XLR from the Amp, instrument jack into the interface, either usb 3 or thunderbolt 2 into my new iMac arriving tomorrow and hear myself playing via my amp. I need to improve my utube videos. Thanks guys :-)
