I recently acquired a First Generation Apogee One, and am using Garageband. I also have Audacity, but have not fooled around with it much. I am having a hard time getting a clean sound from my bass using the direct input. It comes out sounding like its clipping or distorted (no effects being used). I have tried lowering the input volume, bass volume, etc. with no real luck. I am new to all of this and would appreciate some help! Thanks!
