Right

I have an iMac and i just want to mess around with the Garageband package.

I was just wondering if this temporary setup would work.

Guitar > Lead > 1/4" to 1/8" adaptor > iMac

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks in advance

by lead do you mean distortion?
if you use a distortion pedal and plug it into the mac, it doesnt work very well....
theres a few different distortions and overdrives and any effects whatsoever built into garageband, its pretty fun to goof around with. but the adaptor will work, you just have to go into:
system preferences > Sound > Input > Then click Line In.
do this so it doesnt record from your microphone
and once thats finished, have fun!

I think he means lead as in cable

And yeah tha will work. look aroun for some guitar effects plugins you can use after you have recorded. i can find you some if you really want. It wont sound very good, but it will be just about passable.

If that doesn't get good (ie loud) enough sound...look into a DI box, preferably active.

I meant cable (guitar lead)

Also that would be ace if you could find me some plugins because the Garageband plugins only go so far.

Thanks every one
