    Hi I finally got my new macbook pro and moto 8 pre and have just today tried a bit of recording just to get used to it. I am at the moment using garage band. I have a question about track levels. In Garage Band when I select a track to record there is a slider for input level or an option of clicking the automatic level control. But for some reason they are both just that color of grey you get when something can not be selected on a computer. How do I activate this? It's strange as I did actually manage to record the track, I just can't seem to really adjust the level. I thought maybe it has to do with the motu and I can only select the track level there? Maybe that's what I should be doing, but just a bit confused. Anyway, thanks in advance for whoever takes the time to help out a newbie.

    Assuming you are using the FireWire connection between the 8pre and the Mac, the input levels are set using the manual knobs on the front of the 8pre. There is no software control of this function during recording, which is why the sliders are greyed out.

    Ok I thought something like that maybe the answer. Yes I'm using firewire. Thanks for taking the time.
