    OK I must be doing something wrong here.

    I'm using Garageband 5.1

    I have an electric guitar plugged into the instrument input of an Apogee Duet recording interface.

    If I add a "real instrument" track, then I can select the input channel in the "track info" pane in GB. Works fine, I can hear the guitar. But I can't access the various guitar effects and models.

    To do that I create an "electric guitar" track instead. However, when I do that, I don't see any option to select the input channel in the track info pane. And I don't hear any sound. Apple help just says I should "select the input channel in the track info pane" but I don't see it there, like it is for a "real instrument"...

    what's going on?

    Oh right, I see. I have to double-click the picture of the amp to open those settings. Who knew?
