How to record on MacBook


Hi everyone!
im a Marshall code 50 owner.

i was trying to record my guitar via USB using GarageBand, but it was not possible.

I setup the input as Code in GarageBand but doesn't work.

any suggestions? or maybe Code doesnt work with GarageBand?
can you recomend any interface (not an expensive one) to record my guitar?

I had exactly the same problem on PC with Presonus Studio One. Solution was very simple - before you buy any (even very inexpensive) interface, try Audacity.

Hi Cesar, I was able to do this just with the USB cable between the Code 50 and the Macbook. If Problem still exists, reach out to me, then I can give you more details. br Thomas
