How exactly is the Tascam connected to the Mac? Are you using a USB hub?

The Tascam requires sufficient power from the USB connection to allow the Mac to see it, so if you are using a USB hub then remove it and connect the Tascam directly to the Mac. Also remove any other unneccessary USB devices from the Mac.

Let me know if that helps?

My macbook and Garageband recognized the AudioBox USB and i have no other USB devices plugged in. This is the route I have taken; From the Line Output( RCA ) to the AudioBox USB Main Out( Left and Right by 1/4" ) and then from the AudioBox USB to the macbook( by USB ). Everything turns on and works on its own. I'm just not getting sound/signal from the Garageband, but Garageband recognizes the AudioBox USB. I can only get sound if I plug straight into the AudioBox, but still no signal from Garageband. And how would I connect the Tascam 424mkII straight to the macbook?

Also I have been told that I need a interface to connect the Tascam 424mkII since it is not digital to the macbook, so I may run Garageband.

Hi, my name is Rusty. I'm just now seeing this question. I'm a sound engineer, do you still need help with this?
