    Recording guitar and vocals
    How do I record both guitar and vocals at the same time keeping their levels the same and maintaining the quality?

    Re: Recording guitar and vocals
    Hi - It's pretty straightforward [see the attached screenshot].. - First, select the correct input for each track In the Smart Controls panel [shortcut "B"] - Record-arm both tracks - Turn monitoring on for both tracks [the little orange buttons next to the record buttons]; be sure to monitor in headphones [to avoid leakage and feedback from the vocal mic] - If the interface supports it you can set the level of each incoming audio signal in the Smart Controls panel with the Record Level slider[s] -- if it doesn't then you'd set the incoming [record] level with the appropriate level control[s] on the interface itself - Set the monitoring [playback] level of each track with the volume slider[s] in the track header[s] - Hit record [shortcut "R"] I've also linked this thread to a basic GarageBand course [above] that might be of some help.
