Is there anyone who can tell me whether a particular cable suitable for feeding a guitar into Garageband on an iMac? The cable in question is this one:
My son bought it, but when he plugs it into his guitar (an electroacoustic) and plugs the other end into the USB socket on our iMac, it does not seem to be recognised by the Mac as a device. In the Sound menu in System Preferences, it does not appear as an input device. The indicator light on the USB end of the cable does not illuminate. Perhaps the cable is simply faulty, but before giving the vendor a hard time I wanted to check if I should be doing something else in order to make it work.
The listing seems to claim that it should just work on a plug and play basis, as the cable has a built-in driver and signal boost. Am I missing something?
