What is an audio interface?
Garageband illiterate but trying desperately to learn! I'm looking to buy a mic to record songs I've written & want to sell...but I keep seeing that I'll need an audio interface to hook it up to my Mac. Help?

Simply it's a upgraded sound card for your Mac.
External audio interfaces let you record audio - converting the analog sound to digital data providing the audio component for multimedia applications such as music composition, editing video or audio, presentation, education and entertainment.
Also providing connections for external monitors and inputs such as XLR for microphones and line in connection for instruments.
Simple song writing can be had with a USB mic and a midi keyboard.

Can I plug headphones (for example iPhone headphones) into the AUDIO OUT socket and just have the sound go through my headphones?
