No, it's very easy.
Create a new Music Project.
Create a new Basic Track (Cmd/Shft-N).
Select that Track by clicking the Header (the left side).
Click the Track Record button (far left, lights up Red when selected).
Click the big Record button on the left at the bottom.
Stop when you're done.
Hit the Return key.
Hit the Space bar to listen.

And why did you add steps like "Select that Track" when the track is already selected, or "Click the Track Record Button" when all that did was turn it off? Maybe this isn't as easy as I thought.iMac G5 (iSight), Mac OS X (10.4.9), 2.1Ghz 2GB
Currently Being ModeratedNov 24, 2007 5:25 PM (in response to J Coffle)Ok, I give up. All I'm trying to do is record something, anything, with the built in mic. I get nothing. I read the book, I tried help, nothing. 45 minutes I've been trying to record something, still no luck.
I've gone into the system preferences, sound, click on internal microphone, set that up, when I make noise the input level lights are lighting up, so the mic works.
In Garage band I start a new project, add a new track, click on the red record button, I make noise. When I play it back there is only silence. The mute is not on, solo is not on, still nothing, what am I missing????????

But good you got it working!MacBook Pro 2.0 GHz, Mac OS X (10.5)
