Question about M-Audio M Audio Audio Buddy Microphone
So I just purchased the Audio Buddy Dual Mic Preamp/Direct Box and have no idea how to set it up. I have garage band on my mac and all I am looking to do at this point is record some guitar and vocals. What cables do I need to do this? Is there something beyond the audio buddy that I need in order to do this. Completely new to the home recording thing. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
You probably connect the Audio Buddy via a USB or firewire cable. I use both types of audio interfaces. Your mac will sense which bus has audio. Go to System Preferences panel and select sound. Select input. You should see your Audio Buddy listed if it is connected properly. You can set levels from this panel and test the device by looking at the two level meters. Speak into the mic; the level meters should move from left to right. Go to the output panel and chose your monitoring device. I prefer the built-in speakers, but you could also connect your monitor to the USB interface or even the Audio Buddy. If I need better quality monitoring I plug a mini cable into the earphone jack and use a desktop speaker. Don't try to use that headphone jack for anything but monitoring - the quality is not great. If the Audio Buddy software requires that you select an input source, always use USB, never line or built-in mic. Another way to capture audio from an Audio Buddy or similar device is to use Wiretap Studio Pro or Roxio CD Spin Doctor for audio capture. I use both.
