Over on my YouTube channel, a viewer named “Crazy Robot Lady” asked:

I am attempting to record a multitrack dramatized audio work using just Farrago and GarageBand. I also have my Clarett two Pre USB set as my audio output device. My problem is I end up with either only my voice or only my background music track even though I have set up two audio tracks- one for my voice and the other for music. I also make sure to select my line in and or microphone for both tracks. Ummmmm any idea what I’m doing wrong here? Do I need Audio hijack in addition to Farrago and Garrageband to combine these two tracks into one file?

If you’ve been following along this far, you know that I’m a huge fan of Rogue Amoeba‘s Audio Hijack audio app for macOS. It helps overcome macOS’ inability to have multiple audio sources in even it’s professional apps like Logic Pro. In the video I cover how Garageband suffers from this as well and demonstrate how to use Audio Hijack to accomplish this.
