Connect a microphone
You can connect a microphone to your computer to record your voice, an instrument, or any other sound to an audio track. You can connect a microphone to your computer’s audio input port, a USB port, or to an audio interface connected to your computer. You can also use your computer’s built-in microphone to record sound.
Connect a microphone to your computer
Do one of the following:
Connect the microphone to an input on the audio interface using a standard XLR cable.
Connect a USB microphone to your computer’s USB port on your computer. Choose the USB microphone as the track’s input source.
Connect an audio interface to your computer’s USB or FireWire port, then connect a microphone to the audio interface for recording.
Connect an audio mixer or console to an audio interface, then connect the interface to your computer.
If your computer has an audio input port, connect the microphone to the audio input, then choose Built-in Input as the track’s input source.
If you’re using your computer’s built-in microphone, choose Built-in Microphone as the input source in Logic Pro > Preferences > Audio > Devices.
After you connect a microphone, you choose the input source for the track you want to record to; you can also turn on monitoring to hear sound from your microphone as you play. You can choose the input source in the New Tracks dialog when you create a new track, or choose it from the Input slot on the track’s channel strip in the Mixer or the inspector.
