    Garageband Recording Level Slider Grayed Out

    Hi everyone,
    First time recording using USB interface. I have everything set up correctly and I am getting levels into garageband but for some reason the recording level slider in GB is grayed out.
    Using Audio Kontrol 1 interface.
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks!

    I'm not a Garageband user so I moved this to the Garageband / Logic thread.

    I use GarageBand for now and when I get a grayed out track level slider, it's usually because I clicked on the volume automation button. Do you still get a grayed out slider without the controller?

    I'm using a Novation X-Station with GarageBand and the recording level and automatic gain buttons are disabled. I believe it's because the driver lacks input controls. This fact is stated in the audio section of the Mac's system preferences. I've also used the X-Station in Windows XP and it is disabled there as well. It still records and plays back without any problems and I can control the level on the X-Station itself.

    The only problem is that when the X-Station is active, the Garageband record level is still grayed out even if the built in mic or system input is selected. This is not a problem because GarageBand can only have one input or output device at a time and the X-Station can be turned on or off while plugged into the Mac. Turning off the X-Station enables the record level slider.
