Anyone had any luck in this?

I was fooling around using Garage Band and out grew it.

Thought I'd step up to my PC and start in earnest.

Having a hell of a time.

Have a imic and can record through Soundforge, and Band in a Box (which kinda seems like a lame program) so I know the inputs are working.

What I want is:


for some odd reason

I know Propellerhead's Reason has it, I want to play with it, but I can't get Reason to see the input.

I have the same problem with Calkwalk, doesn't see the input!

Both of these programs seem to have the level of sophistication that I want to move towards

I've been banging my head against a wall with different terms with Google, but can't find anything conclusive. Just put in my sixth hour of searching

Any help gratefully appericated!

Program does look good, thank you very much!

Got it to record and everything

Just spent 30 minutes trying to figure out how to monitor the input in real time, AAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any ideas?

Since you were using GarageBand on a Mac, you could of went to Logic Express. You are able to open GB files and use all the plugins too.

Any ideas on how to overcome the latency issues with PCs?

I agree with the Logic Express idea whole heartedly. And if you want guitar effects via software you might want to look at Guitar Rig - it will work with most programs as a plug in - including logic and garage band.

it has tons of options for effects - it will emulate most popular effects including envelope filter, tube screamer, phaser, chorus... you name it. And it will let you emulate specific amps, speaker cabinets, mics and mic placements. Lots of fun.
