Sorry for the lack of post recently. My schedule has been pretty busy. I've decided to do a couple Mac posts shortly. I've been doing a lot of PC, Gmail, and General tech stuff and believe its time to get to the good stuff.
I finially got iLife '04 on Thursday. GarageBand is AWSOME!!! I haven't even played with iMovie or iPhoto yet. iTunes 4 has been out as a download for a while so it was nothing new.
I am a GarageBand fanatic. It's so fun to create your own songs with minimal effort. The hardest part is having to deal with an older mac (eMac 700Mhz, 256mb ram) However, it does get the job done. I'm supprised it working as well as it is. I expected it to crash all the time and bog down too. This hasn't been the case, yet.
If you don't know what GarageBand is, it is a loop/MIDE editor. It comes loaded with a ton of loops and sounds. Apples developers have made it super easy for anyone to put together a little song. The loops fit together very nicely.
GarageBand can also be used to record backup tracks for your original song. You can record your guitar and voice into GarageBand, then add drums, bass, and extras. You can even sing a harmony to yourself.
I have been making a bunch of songs over the past two days. Here are some of the songs I've composed. Feel free to download them and do whatever you want to them. Also if you don't mind, give me some feedback on how you liked them. Just leave it in the comments.
Download my songs here.
If you haven't already picked up GarageBand, and you have a Mac, don't wait any longer. The whole iLife '04 package which includes iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, and GarageBand. All of this only costs $50. In my view each program seperately cold sell for $50. iLife is a steal!
If you have made any cool GarageBand songs lately?
