    I am trying to record electric/distortion guitar on GarageBand 2.0, I have an 8 input Yamaha mixer, and a light snake interface...this is all i can afford. I have 3 mics, and a keyboard. I am trying to record some of our metal songs in garageband...But i just cannot get a decent recording... Does anyone have any advice for creating a decent recording. Some parts of the song will sound really good, but then later on, it sounds like crap, and i have tried mic recording for distortion and it sounds like ur far away...and direct in gets too distorted...please i need help

    my mac:
    ibook G3 Dual USB
    30 GB harddrive
    256 MB RAM

    Go direct line in, and maybe turn down yer amp? Or distort it after the fact.

    PS > I'm amazed gband can even run more than two or three tracks on that system.
