Question about Apple Griffin iMic External Sound System
Hi all experts!
i was hoping to use my new Griffin iMic to record stereo backups for live comcerts, and save carting around my soundcard as well as my 48 channel rig...but the iMic doesn't appear to work with Logic...can anyone enlighten me as to whether it should or not so I can decide whether I am wasting my time trying?
I had a similar problem, but I managed to solve it; however, I'm using different recording software. The iMic simply does not have built-in input monitoring. Chances are, you are getting an input-signal but it is not being monitored. Try to find some kind of input-monitoring in your recording software. I found a toolbar, in my recording software, called "playback state" that has an option for input-monitoring. Search the help file index, within your software, to find something similar. Here's a quote from iMic's quickstart guide that might be of further assistance:
"In order to hear your turntable or microphone, you will need to enable an important preference in your recording software, usually called “Playthrough.” It may also be called Monitor, Passthrough, Cue, Preview, etc. Enabling such a feature tells the software how to route your audio, and is necessary for monitoring even when not recording."
Moreover, once you've solved this, I recommend using the iMic for both input and output, as latency with onboard-sound-output will likely be intolerable for input monitoring.
