    The title explains it all.

    Just wondering if it is possible to record with a USB Microphone and the Microphone Input jack simultaneously into one recording program as two different channels (and also one channel). The reason for the distinction is to record and be able to edit the two separately, and also have both be audible.

    If it's possible please advise, and thank you ahead of time.

    I searched around the forum for a while, but didn't seem to find a similar topic.

    If you are Mac (Apple) you can use the aggregate device function How to combine multiple audio interfaces by creating an aggregate device on Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard
    On a PC I don't think you can, but maybe someone else has an idea on this.

    are you recording to an app. like cubase or something like that?
    if so, couldn't you access the usb mic on track 1 imput
    and the line in mic on track 2 in the app's vst mixer.
    just thinking out loud here.

    That's what I suspected for the multiple channel and multiple track idea. The second would be harder. A video and audio recording program that will get both the input of the guitar and the mic along with video.

    Thank you for your posts btw, and boxcar, I will look into Cubase and possibly purchase it.
