Hello

 

I just bought an Squire Fender USB Guitar. When I load the Garageband and plug the guitar (via the USB provided cable), can't hear the guitar on the Mac. Then I put ad ear phones on the guitar, and I can hear sound, but I am unable to record anything...

 

I'm missing some step?

GarageBand (Mac) '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    Did you select the select the guitar in Garageband preferences?

     

    Using a Guitar track?

     

    Select the input channel and turn monitoring on in the track info window?

    What happens if you start recording? Do you get any waveform in the track?

     

    If you drop a audio loop in the track can you hear that from the guitar headphone output?

    Go to Garageband > Preferences > Audio Midi and choose the iMac speakers for output.

     

    You can monitor from the guitar or the iMac.

    You have the correct settings. You sure you have monitoring turned on?

     

    Do you have anything plugged into the iMac's headphone jack. Try plugging headphones into the mac, can you hear the guitar?
