I did some recording today. I used the cabinet simulation on both my Fender Bassbreaker and Vox MV50 amps. I also used my A/B/Y switch to run both amps at the same time. It was awesome. Not as awesome as it would have been if I had been running the amps through actual speakers, but it was still awesome.
Unfortunately, it exposed a limitation of the mighty GarageBand. I put the output of the Fender into a track of it’s own. I then put the output of the Vox into a separate track. That’s when I realized something I kind of already knew… you can only record on one track at a time. I have recorded in stereo before but I did it on one stereo track. Given the way the setup works, I should have known that I couldn’t record on two tracks at once.
That means if I want to record band practices with each mic on a separate track… I have to spend $200 to get Logic Pro.
