Recording external instruments using GarageBand on iPad (3rd gen), I have disabled the metronome in playback, but it's still faintly audible in the background. The instrument was lined in directly using iRig (not using a mic), so it can't be bleed through headphones.

 

Any suggestions?

GarageBand (iPad), iOS 6.0.2

    I had the same problem. It happens because you are recording the metronome that's playing through the speaker onto the track you are recording. I've found using headphons when you use the the external mic will eliminate this problem, if your not using the external speaker the mic won't pick up the metronome or other tracks.

    That is strange, maybe try laying a track of just metronome, then record your track & then deletethe metronome track.

    I get he same problem on my imac computer (headphones and direct in - no mics).  I wonder if it is the DI and not the program. I use a Tascam US-122.  I also get feedback through my headphones when I raise the distortion.

    What kind of instrument are you using?

    I just submitted similar question-I use external instruments (Roland and Korg) via Alesis Multitrack USB interface with MAC Pro via GB 6.0.4. My External Mics are definitely off during instrument recording. Although the same phenomenon does NOT happen if I do a test track with an internal soft wear instrument! Therefore this Ghost Metronome I'm getting on all tracks must be related to some outside feedback!. Thus, when I record a track with Metronome, then mute it on playback, I'm still getting very faint ghost metronome track!. I'll try the idea of recording a Metronome track seperately in the mean time. Thanks

    thanks, might try both ideas, also perhaps try recording a click track, then mute it and see if that works! At least I know I'm not crazy!!!
