    I have a M-audio Fast Track Pro interface that came with ProTools MP9. I have been mostly using GarageBand, but the tone of my bass sounds horrible because of the amp selections on GarageBand. I want to plug in my TecAmp Puma bass head DI so I can get the clear beautiful tone of the Puma, do I still have to sacrifice not being able to record in GarageBand? Or should I just start recording in ProTools?

    You can make a fine recording in Garageband but it's limited. If you are concerned about fine tuning any signal path with superior quality plugins, Protools is the obvious answer.

    You can get a very good sounding recording with garageband, keep experimenting. If you want a education on using digital recording software, nothing wrong with working with garageband for a while. You will know when it's time to improve your software. If you can not get a good recording with Garageband and a good sounding mix, it is not the limitation of the software. Garageband in the hands of an experienced user will give you that.
