    Hello all, this is my first post on the forums and I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

    In Garageband, when I record acoustic guitar, the first 5 seconds are recorded at a good volume, but then Garageband automatically reduces the recording volume, making for a very inconsistent beginning.

    I am using the default acoustic guitar track, with automatic level control turned OFF. This is on the newest MBP, with what i believe is the latest Garageband.

    Any ideas?

    I was unexpectedly suffering from the same problem, after never having that problem.

    Here is how to fix it:

    1. System Preferences
    2. Sound (in the Hardware section)
    3. Uncheck "Use ambient noise reduction"
    4. Close the box and exit System Preferences
    5. Record happily, with no terrible underwater sounds
