Hi,

I tried to record something with garageband a few days ago. But now I cant get any sound through the line-in input. The "input-meter" wont even move. What could be wrong?

I know that all the cables/instruments are ok, and theres plenty of sound coming out. I also called my local mac distrubutor and they couldnt help me either.

What should i do?
QUOTE Thanks

I am so fed up with this issue as well. I use a USB microphone and also bought an M Audio Podcast Factory USB preamp, including microphone and cannot get a decent input level in Garage Band or any other Mac application. Bottom line is, the sound card in my iMac is crap!! I have to literally have my mouth on the mic to get anything at a decent level. All of the forums out there have people reporting low input levels on all macs. The cheezy little built-in mic picks up sound better. Unfortunately, the Macs suck at external microphone input!!! They are crap....nuff said!!!!!

Was it the right type of track? (i.e. a "real instrument" track and not a midi track?)
