I am trying to record singing in Logic Pro X. I have a background track that I want the signer to be able to hear through EarPods or Beats. However, I don't want to use the microphone that comes with them; I want to use the internal microphone.

Here's System Preferences with the EarPods in: enter image description here

As you can see, the only options are the microphone on the EarPods and the empty Line In port (I have an older MacBook Pro).

Without the EarPods, I get what I want: enter image description here

How can I use the Internal microphone with EarPods in?


Have you already tried to use either Line In or BoomDevice for recording with your EarPods? That worked for me.

  • Line In is for the separate input on this Mac (Early 2011). BoomDevice is used by the application Boom to boost the output volume. – nrubin29 Apr 18 '14 at 20:29
