I was reading there are some problems with iMic/mini/GB 2 can anyone confirm this. What are some other options to get audio in?

I have an iMic and it has been hit and miss. I have been able to get good quality sound into GB2 with my midi interface and my keyboard, but not the iMic -- levels running too high.

There are some who have speculated that there may be issues with the USB -- if this is true, then the issue extends to the FW, as well. For instance, a few people have reported that their printers will occasionally bug out forcing them to restart. I never experienced that until . . . a few minutes ago -- yuck. My issues that involve FW have to do with the fact that I can not burn anything with the internal burner that resides on my external hard drive -- yet I can burn from the external HD to the external burner!

Let's be clear, so far I have found work arounds for every issue -- but I must admit that I've had more issue with my mini than with any other new Mac (or pre-Mac) Apple computer I've ever owned.

I really want to buy some sort of USB/firewire breakout box. I want to use my Strapplecaster ie my real Strat with stickers from mini on the pickguard into my mini to use with GB. I was so exicted a few weeks ago when I read on Thinksecret that Apple may come out with one but it never panned out. I was thinking of buying an iMic butt heard there were some issues like the ones you tallked about.

I was looking at these.

What are you using the iMic for Mic or Guitar?

Will those fit in the Strat? I doesn't look like the plug is offset much. Do you record your own music or use loops?

I record my own stuff but do use some of the drum and bass loops. I even attempt to do some singing. Shocked I only started playing the guitar about three years ago so I'm no pro. I called DVforge and got more information on these plug adapters. Some guy there said they would fit the Strat and was a musician himself. I think I'm going to order one next week.

Let us know how it works out as I am thinking of purchasing one of these for my guitar as well!

Cool I have a Ovation Legend and play around with GB all the time. Let me know how the works out for you. I'm looking around for something better than the iMic. I really want a powered breakout box but they are so expensive.

I saw that. It looks like Asteroid is why Apple is suing the rumor sites. So where there's heat ther may be fire.

I just hope they make it already.
