Default How do you hook up 2 USB Mics to record stereo on a Mac?

I want to record our Barbershop quartet, and I have 2 USB Mics. How can I get Audacity, or Garage Band, or any other software to recognize both mics and use both of them to record at the same time to make a stereo recording?

IIRC you would need a mixer. I think audacity can only use one input at a time. I use it to record my guitar and vocals and stuff, and I have a USB mixer, so I can plug everything to that and then into the computer.

Idk about Garage Band.

How about Logic Express or Audition?

Audition is a pretty good multitrack recorder for the starters out there.

And it will record as many tracks as your audio interface can throw at it.

You have to set up the program to use a seperate track for each mic.
