    Garageband and Guitar Rig 6
    Hi - Thanks in advance for your consideration of my question! I use Garageband (version 10.4.6) on MacOS BigSur (version 11.6.7) for some home recording. I use Native Instruments' Guitar Rig 6 Pro as an effects processor for my guitar tracks. The issue I'm having is I can hear the Guitar rig effects (amps, etc) when recording, but when I play it back, all I hear is the clean guitar tone. Am I missing something in the signal chain when playing it back? The goal is to hear the GR effects applied for playback after recording, so what I hear WHILE recording is what I hear AFTER recording when played back. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Hi - I can't duplicate that here. If I insert an amp sim plug-in on an Audio track and monitor it during recording, I can hear the effect both during the the recording and later in playback. I assume you're inserting the plug-in in a plug-in slot in GarageBand in the Smart Controls pane [shortcut 'B'] under Track > Plug-ins. I do have have a slightly older version of GB [10.3.2] under Mojave [10.14.6], and I had to use a different brand of plug-in to test [I don't own NI], but unless there's a bug in that later version of GB, AFAIK it should work the same way.. Besides the usual troubleshooting test [full shutdown/restart], maybe try it in a fresh GB Project, and make sure the plug-in is still active during playback and hasn't been bypassed [or shut off via automation?]..
