    Hi Guys, i am trying to use an external mic with Logic 9 to record vocals but there is no sound from it at all, just the Macs own internal mic. I have tried different settings but still nothing, am i doing something wrong or is there some other hardware i need? any help would be appreciated. Thanx

    Have you changed the audio input in System Preferences? Does the mic even show up there?

    Your USB mic is not being recognized. Is it Mac-compatible? Does it require drivers?

    Line in is the analog audio input port on your Mac. There's nothing plugged into it, ergo no sound.
