As a Mac user I have access to all of the innovative Mac programs in the i-life suite but I never gave them much attention. I saw the first incarnation of Garageband and to be frank wasn't too impressed as I am familiar with logic and pro-tools via my musician friends (which are still currently the industry standard I think). Well I was shocked while setting up my new Mac book Pro I decided to pop open Garagband and see if it got any better and I was blown away by it. It is simple and intuitive and packed with all sorts of tools and loops to help the non-musician, like myself, to create some really fun stuff. I have been reading and experimenting for months now and am close to producing some things I really like, which hopefully will make it here soon!
