i recently bought a cable to record my guitar on garageband that plugs in to the headphone jack. as i have a macbook air, there is only one jack for me to plug both audio input and output. garageband will not recognize it as a recording device and instead thinks of it as headphones, meaning that no sound will come out. is there anyway that i can use this cable to record sound or will i need to buy a new one that i need to plug into a usb port???

GarageBand (Mac) '11
