Hookay... I've got GarageBand installed on the PowerBook, have my M-Audio Ozone MIDI controller installed, and I'm ready to start fooling around. And it occured to me that, despite being a conservatory-trained musician, I know fuck-all about any of this shit. My questions: 1. The controller has a mic input. When I plug in the mic, I don't hear any sound through the speakers (the keyboard part works well, and I've done some basic recording with it). I'm not even sure how to phrase this question, so I apologize if I'm asking incorrectly: How do I get the mic/other instruments to "talk" to the computer using a MIDI controller's input? 2. A corollary to question 1: The PowerBook has an internal mic. Do I need to shut that off or something, And if so, how? I'm using OS X. 3. The PowerBook is old, and only has 10 GB of hard disk space. Right now, I'm using 9 or so. What can I delete off of the computer to free up space, since I'd like to purchase more loops. I'll probably have more questions later. Thanks!
