If you're like me, you're obsessed with home recording. I spent much time and money to determine the best how to connect my microphones and guitars to my computer through the years. Here are the main lines that I chose and what works best.


From the beginning I decided to go with the Mac platform, simply because I played with iLife software includes "GarageBand" and was quite satisfied with your recording capacity. I do not think has it all, but I have a Powerbook G4 in 2003 and now has a MacBook Pro

Right Line-In w / Radio Shack Adapter

The first thing that was treated to use the built-in line-in on my Mac, which is a 1 / 8 inch stereo female port. So I took a 1 / 4 inch to 1 / 8 inch adapter from Radio Shack. It was the worst form interface my guitar on my computer. Part of Radio Shack, my cable does not match the right tool, causing excessive wear on my Mac port, and the sound was big metal.


The iMic is basically the same as the adapter from Radio Shack, only has a shorter cable and adjusted it my quality instrument cable. I still nonmetallic.

M-Audio Fastrack USB audio interface

I had my first fruit of success with this $ 99 audio interface. In essence, takes the guitar or an analog signal from the microphone and transforms it into a numerical code. Send digital data via USB to your recording software, and voila!

This solution was my first semi-professional experience, sound recordings, along with some GarageBand post-production mixing and effects. There was always a problem with the buzz and reviews, however.

Mixer also provided a friend who would make some mix and balance, and soon was making stereo recordings. It looked very good, but increased interference. There were too many connections and wires and the potential for signal loss and corruption.

Alesis USB 8-Channel Mixer

This solution has worked better for me for a small home grown virtual budget, while getting a quality recording studio. This mixer was approximately $ 200, but works both mixer common analog, and a USB interface (both parts, which can be used independently of each other). This mixer USB interface eliminates some of the seams platform to investigate purest, quality recordings. The mixer also features 100 different effects preamplifier.

So, basically, the signal goes from my guitar, a cable from my USB mixer via the USB cable directly to my computer. There are very few participants analog connections.

Behringer iAXE 393

There is another option that is less than analog connections. The 393 iAXE Behringer has a law on this USB port can connect directly to your computer Digital. This is an amazing, allowing continuous digital recording. Hopefully more companies will jump guitar and add your own USB versions of the guitars.

I have tested the iAXE, and I must say that even if the action was a little earlier, the guitar sounds great, pumping data directly into GarageBand.
