GarageBand Causes Collapse of Music Industry

- 2004.04.27

GarageBand offers all of the tools you need to achieve professional results. Don't worry - you won't need an engineer that can cost thousands of dollars. So what if you sold your flute or never bought a piano? GarageBand lets you be a one man band.

Close your eyes and you can hear the song playing in your head.

It's a haunting piano melody.

Since not everyone has a garage, let alone a band to invite over, we thought you might appreciate having a few professional musicians sit in on your sessions. You can place them in infinite combinations of unique arrangement. GarageBand's Loop Browser helps you get the creative juices flowing.

You don't even have to have rhythm.

It's the easiest way to create, perform, and record your own music whether you're an accomplished player or just wish you were a rock star. Since not everyone has a garage, let alone a band to invite over, we thought you might appreciate a thousand of their riffs on your Mac after you install GarageBand.

You don't even have to have rhythm.

GarageBand plays them all back with your composition, so you can hear what it sounds like as you mix in changes. In fact, with that electric guitar of yours, you have access to virtual guitar amps that let you emulate such classic and modern sounds as Clean Jazz, Arena Rock, British Invasion, and others.

You don't even have to have rhythm.

Connect your electric guitar directly to your Mac by using a little acoustic bass here, a tambourine loop there - then lay down a few tracks of your own to complete the mix.

You don't even have to have rhythm.

Like to experiment? By all means, do so. If you're not completely happy with what you're hearing, you can experiment with the effects yourself until you achieve the sound you're after. You can emulate a Jimi Hendrix solo with your guitar overpowering the vocals.

You don't even have to have rhythm.

Author's Note: This article was composed completely of quotations cut out of sequence and out of context from Apple's GarageBand page, cut and pasted together rather like little riffs of music randomly slapped together in odd combinations. Wonder where I got that idea?
