    Wink Recording Music using GARAGE BAND?
    Can I use GARAGE Band to record music tracks from radio or my MP3 files?
    (Connecting a cable from radio or MP3 player to iMac audio input?)
    Will the recording be MP3 or wav or what?

    Can I plug in a microphone to my iMac and record live music using the
    GARAGE BAND? Thanks for any reply.

    Record tracks as in take a guitar track and single it out from an mp3 you have?
    If that is the case, then no you can't. No software is going to be able to do that. The only way to get a single instrument track is to get a hold of the master track recordings.

    Actually, Cubase does that.

    You hit record in Cubase, then whatever sounds are on your computer (AIM, iTunes, Internet Radio) are recorded.

    Yes, Garageband can record the sounds on your computer through the internal mic as well.
    But no software will separate the different tracks of an mp3 into separate instrument tracks.
