    Anyone record music on your Mac? Musicians?
    I am looking for a good interface with my Macbook to record guitar, bass, and live shows onto my Macbook.

    For the life of me, I cannot figure out GarageBand....I have used Cubase before, and similar softwares.

    Wanting to stay in the $200-300 range...but mainly looking for some good suggestions.

    Fidelity of the music is important to me, and ease of use...plug n' play style....

    I have heard the Firepods are pretty good.....

    Well there's apple's own Logic. There's also Reason for Mac.

    I don't know how you can't figure out Garageband though. Its so friendly and its lack of all those fine tuning knobs makes it perfect for a non-technical guy like me. I've recorded some tracks here and there, and they sound perfect (for a home recording).

    Right now recording a demo track for my brother's band. Just plugged into the Line in, selected a new track (Real instrument > No Effects) and pressed record!

    Drop into an Apple store if there is one close to you - if you show up at a quiet time, there'll be someone there who can talk you through GB. If you hate it, there are plenty of alternatives.

    I love it. I use the musical typing to record all my own drum tracks, then the bass, then I use synths, and guitar to finish it. It helps that I play all those instruments for real, but a good way to learn GB is to try and imitate actual songs that could be redone in GB. An example would be "Clocks" by Coldplay. Simple beat, simple piano and bass. I can spend literally hours on GB making trance music and house, or rock, all with the software instruments. Pure fun. I used to hate it, but the musical typing makes all the difference in the world.
