    Mic/headphone conflict
    Hi, I have just upgraded from an older iPad with a headphone jack to an iPad Pro. I also bought a multi socket adaptor to allow me to use normal headphones. The problem is, when I’m trying to record vocals using the inbuilt microphone. GarageBand automatically turns off the internal mic when it has something plugged into the USB port. If I use wireless headphones, the latency is to dramatic and not viable. Can anyone please provide a solution?! Thanks

    Hi - The desktop version of GarageBand has a Feedback Protection option (for audio tracks)—if the iPad version has that as well, maybe try turning it off (if it's on)..? The Help doc says "If you select your computer’s built-in microphone as the audio input (in the Audio/MIDI pane of GarageBand preferences), monitoring is turned off for all Electric Guitar tracks to avoid unwanted noise". If you're using a guitar track maybe try recording on a regular audio track instead (you could open the "Plug-ins" triangle (in the Smart Control Editor) and add guitar amp/FX plug-ins if needed). If none of that works, you could always pick up an inexpensive USB mic, which would sound much better than the built-in mic anyway (around $40-$99).
