I DID notice that GarageBand also features an on-screen software KB! How effective is that setup? Can you configure the software to use the keys on a standard QWERTY KB also? (Useful if you want to produce tonal loops of your own with just a few notes right?
Most of the work in Garageband comes in the actual arranging of a song. That sample I threw at you people was done in about 10 minutes. Nice to throw some additional effects in to! This app is truly a work of art!!!!!!
I just used the sample loops and instruments from the Garageband archive. I have not hooked up my keyboards yet, but that wil be the next step.
iLife is definitely worth the money. Perhaps the best software package I've ever invested my cash into.
Oh....as for the out of sync thing...yeah...listening back now I hear it. Thanks. One has to be sure that when one cuts and pastes a loop or pattern from one track to another that your left and right markers are exactly placed at a measure. It's easy to paste and eighth or sixteenth off. There is an option to snap to grid though.
I think a site devoted to our GarageBand tracks is in order? Agreed?
I have foudn that GarageBand is an amazing program so far, however, it needs quite a bit of improvement before it is where it needs to be (IMHO)
If you want to check out my first thought and issues on GarageBand, I have bosted a lengthy article on my board about it. Check it out!
iLabmAn - Great work on the track so far (I recognize a couple loops there
I will post my track as soon as it is completed, I am using it to remix one of my songs!
I have missed quite the amount of postings! Since my new job, I have not time to board surf at work anymore, and I am working hard hard hard on my documentary (Full trailer to be released soon!), but I do come and read when I can!!
I think snap to grid is essential, especially if you are working on a small screen. Can't wait to get my copy: went to six stores this weekend: one sold out, four had not received and one had it but was in the middle of their stock count and refusing to sell
