Troutmagnet, that's great - I hope you've got more on the way!

Check out my boring GB doodlings here. I just put up a new one called "Marathon".

No musical background... well that's a lie actually, I've been in three bands, but we never did any more than jam in a basement (I play guitar.... rather badly at that) - I played live in front of 250 people in some tiny village in England when I lived there and sucked abysmally since I was half sloshed and couldn't remember any of the words (stage fright=ten pints bartender!)

I guess I'm the only dude that ever bothered to turn up to our practices - everyone else was just waaaay too 'cool' to bother... (you know the drill)

That said, I don't a have a bad voice though (currently working on my 'real' tunes - I have about sixty songs I've written down, but always intended to get my -beep- together at some point and grab a 4-track or something similar)


I have a MDD G4/867DP - 1GB RAM - 120GB 7200RPM HD.

I've NEVER touched any music software before last night - apart from sampling some voices for a stage-show performance and the track took me from about 10 p.m. to about 1 a.m. - The whole thing was probably finished by about midnight, but I spent the rest of the time fiddling with the Master Tracks features and adding different effects to the instrument channels.

I can't believe I've been missing this side of digital creativity all this time... It's like I just crawled out from under a rock!

And doug gardhouse - not bad! But I really wish you could just host the entire file download on FTP or something, I'm getting some really strange buffering problems from your stream - I'm sure it's not my ISP or connection though. Anyone else getting this problem?

Thanks for the feedback though! Noone replied until about 11 a.m. today, so I was starting to think that maybe it was just god-awful... (it IS just a hack-and-slash though, please bear in mind...)

I guess Apple believed in people like you when releasing Garageband. It's nice to see that the tools have empowered you.
kudos. :cool:

It doesn't matter what Apple thinks,
I'm just glad that the software will enable me to be light years
ahead of Garageband when I get it.
(Not sure if you are quoting my message or not...Oh well)

I just got the confirmation that my keyboard is on it's way.
Now if I can just sell some more of my legacy equipment...
I'll be able to afford Logic Pro/Express

Dave :cool:
