I'm using Garageband 11 and trying to connect my electric guitar into it using iRig - which basically allows the guitar to use the mic input and take the headhpones output back to an amplifier.


I can see the guitar in Garageband under real instruments, I can monitor it no problem, but the noise gate is so aggressive its simply useless. It cuts the guitar off about 1 second after I pluck a note aggresively.


I can find the noise gate controls when I select microphone input, but for some reason they are not visible for real instruments.


Are there any noise gate controls on real instruments or should I give up and use the hardware signal processor I have instead?
