ok, i use garageband for my recording. I'm hooked up through my midi port usign a 1'8th inch adapter. And i get the sound just fine, and i can record it. Its just i can't get the settings the way i want it to sound. It always comes out horrible when i record it. So what are some of your peoples settings?
if i were you i wouldnt rely on garagebands amp simulators. just mic your guitar and cab and then just add some light effects to that.
make sure the levels aren't too low or too high, you want it to peak just touching in the red
i use the pod xt live, it sounds amazing
