    hey... i am a first time mac owner and i have a question concerning Garageband 3. I am trying to record a real instrument track (guitar). I am using headphones and yet i am getting a ton of high pitched/whiny/screechy sound in the background. I try to control this by using the gate when recording, but as soon as i strum, i can still hear it in the background. I've played with all the volume settings (input & output) and i am at a loss!:mad:

    any help would be greatly appreciated.:D

    thats called feedback mate, it happens when an audio input is facing an audio output (eg a mic in front of a speaker)

    Im confused, how do you record with you headphones? :confused:

    tell us more about your recording chain

    I think he means he is just using headphones to hear not record.
