?'s regarding Garageband
Firstly, is it possible for me to get the Drumkit From Hell program and use it with garageband? If not does anyone have any tips on how to program drums well in garageband? Musical typing isn't as helpful as it could be.

Also is there a device I can buy that will let me plug my guitar straight into my mac and play straight into the computer?

I've been messing around recording some Death and Black stuff but the guitar sounds like shit because I have to play through an amp into the crappy mac mic. Any advice at all though on how to use Garageband would be greatly appreciated.

I'm really not familiar with Garageband but I'm sure you can check online to see if DFH is compatible with GB. If it works, there isn't really any tips on how to program drums well, its all a matter of understanding how drumming works and what sounds best.

Yes, there are various devices that will let you 'plug n' play'. The V-Amp Pro is a good, cheap option and it sounds pretty fucking good. Here's a thread of some dude using it to plug his guitar straight into his computer and getting some very good results, especially for the price. Now, vocals may be whole other story. It might be possible to sing through the V-Amp Pro but it also might sound like complete shit and I'm not sure about recording vocals other than through a decent mic and an interface (i.e. a Firepod).

However, if you're serious about recording it wouldn't be a bad idea to save up some cash and buy some decent mics and an interface.

I'm not really serious about it, i'm just writing stuff to please myself but I would like it to sound listenable. Thanks for the V-amp info. Vocals wouldn't matter much anyway as I'll probably be distorting them slightly anyway.

And nice av. I can't wait for the movie.

Glad I could help. Post some stuff when you've gotten something recorded.

Fuck yeah! I can't wait either.
