    Question Audio - Can't hear my voice through microphone
    Hiee guys!

    I'm my TASCAM (US-122L) to my IMac.
    My Tascam

    I am using it as my new soundcard.

    The problem is when I hook the mic up to the TASCAM (or straight to the MAC) I cannot hear myself in my headphones.

    Here are some screen prints:
    Screen 1
    Screen 2
    Screen 3

    Everything Records fine, however, I can't hear myself in my headphones...

    Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It's because you have your audio output going back to the Tascam. You need to go to the menu from screen1 and select output as internal speakers to be able to hear what ever is input through the tascam to mac.

    The way you have it setup now, you have to connect the speakers/headphones/whatever into the tascam device to get anything going to the output.

    Hey JennyW, what he was trying to say is that you need to go into the Preferences screen (garageband>preferences if I recall correctly). Under audio options you'll need to have your input as the Tascam, and the Output as "Built-In Audio".

    Also, when you are recording, you'll need to make sure that you have monitoring turned on. You can get to that by double clicking the audio track that you are working on, and on the right hand side make sure that Monitor is set to "on".

    Hope that helps.
