Review for USB Stereo Audio Adapter, and a How-To…

My USB adapter arrived today! Yippee! iPhone image on 2013-07-23 at 15_42_19

I opened it up to play around with it a bit, just to make sure that my computer and GarageBand would recognize it…

The computer instantly saw it and I was able to adjust the input in the System Preferences–>Sound menu.

Now, interestingly enough, GarageBand did not readily perceive the extra input source….

So, I went into Preferences….

…Clicked onto the Audio/MIDI section….

…Where I could click the “Audio Input” drop-down button to find “C-Media USB Audio Device”…

And, voilà, GarageBand was now receiving the info coming in from the adapter, once I selected it in Input Source drop-down menu of the track.

And, so far, just plugging Aisling directly into the port (via a wonderfully handy 1/8th to 1/4 inch male-to-male cable adapter I have), the sound is crystal clear!

Next up, sometime this week, I’ll begin attaching everything together with my awesome beautiful Behringer mixer and start recording the nice demos for Gypsy Wanderer…! :mrgreen:
