  • Stereo recording using Mac's Garageband

    Hey all -

    I would like to start creating my own drum tracks in Garageband using my TD20.

    How do I get a stereo signal from the TD20 into Garageband using the Master Out or the Digital Out? It seems like Digital Out does not give a stereo signal, and the master out (L and R) cannot be lined into a 3.5 mm jack to input into the Mac.

    The only thing that would work is lining in the headphone jack, but then I couldn't hear what I'm playing (unless I use a splitter).

    Anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks! Dave

    You could use the master L+R, but you need a splitter that does the 2x mono jackplug to 3.5mm stereo mini-jack conversion. You can get them at every electronics store.

      The easiest way would be a stereo jack to mini-jack cable from the headpgones socket to the line/mic socket. Digital out should give a stereo sound though.
