Q. Monitoring Stops in Apple's GarageBand after several seconds, is there some way to fix that?
A.From Apple's TechNotes:
When you're monitoring the audio of a Real Instrument track, the audio input monitoring may stop working after about 90 seconds into your recording session. You may hear clicks and pops in the monitored signal before it drops out.
This issue affects GarageBand versions earlier than 3.0 (which is a part of iLife '06) when using different audio interfaces for the input and the output. For example, if you use an external USB or FireWire audio interface for input and your computer's built-in audio for output, this can happen to you.
GarageBand from Apple Computer uses audio loops and MIDI loops in Apple Loops format. It can work with Audio Units plug-ins. Apple Macintosh Compatible FireWire and USB interfaces can be used to connect Audio and MIDI instruments to your Mac, and be recorded into GarageBand.
