      "Fun and friendly music recording software"

      November 28, 2011   |   By ohappydey

      Version: Apple GarageBand 6.0.4

      Pros

      Fun and easy to use, has a clean interface that's easy to navigate, has a good variety of instruments and loops that are customizable.

      Cons

      Can be laggy when used with a midi device.

      Summary

      This latest version of Garageband is a great upgrade to the earlier version. This has more virtual instruments, better AutoTune and more options than ever before. I like that the app has video lessons available through the App store, as well. The interface is really easy to use. My only gripe is that the app can be a bit slow when used with a midi device or uploading a number of sounds at once. Not too much of a big deal, though.

      "I'm going in circles..."

      June 03, 2011   |   By stevencee

      Version: Apple GarageBand 6.0.2

      Pros

      I might be able to mention some, if I could actually install the update....

      Cons

      Software update says I'm up-to-date, when I download it from the CNET site & try to install it, it tells me I must have at least GB 6 already installed. Well, I have 6.0.1 installed, so now what? Don't know where to go from here...

      "I must have overdosed on Stupidity Pills"

      April 02, 2011   |   By Ras-x

      Version: Apple GarageBand 6.0.2

      Pros

      So far none!

      Cons

      Well, I checked my version - 6.01. Can't get a download of 6.02

      Summary

      As I said, i must have overdosed on stupidity pills. Running 6.01 on both iMac and Macbook pro. tried downloading, and it shunted me onto Software update. it came back and said i was up to date. Checked, still on 6.01. Forced it to download, opened the package and it said - no, check the the App Store. Opened up the Store, there is 6.02 advertised, but it tells me it is already installed. checked "About Garageband", and it says I have 6.01 installed. Ok, I give in, just going around in circles - on both machines!!!

      "My savior for quick and quality production!!!"

      April 01, 2010   |   By jminutes2010

      Version: Not Found

      Pros

      1. user interface is beautiful and easy to use....

      2. does not buffer as much as other DAW's

      3. sound quality is top notch when the enviorment matches it ( soundproofing)

      4. Tracks come and go flawlessly straight to my Ipod!!!!

      5.FREe

      Cons

      1. WISH IT WASN'T SO PROMOTED AS A COOKIE CUTTER DAW LIKE FL STUDIO......
      IF YOU HAVE TRICKS AS A PRODUCER, YOU KNOW IT HAS MANY AMAZING ASPECTS!!!!

      Summary

      I have been a user since 06..... I have wowed many people from its production level outdoing quality in top PC DAWS for awhile!!!!!!!!!!

      Worth it .... it's because of APPLE'S production standpoint in music, and video that they surpass it all overall!!!!!

      "The most user-friendly recording software out there."

      April 04, 2009   |   By TokyoSound

      Version: Apple GarageBand 5.0.1

      Pros

      Based off of the solid Apple Logic platform, really decent borderline high-end guitar modelling right out of the box. The only music software on the market that let's you import midi files and disect/alter them note-by-note for full customability.

      Cons

      Well, it ISN'T Apple Logic Pro, but excellect software for anyone interested in starting home recording. Tends to be sluggish after you have more than 8 tracks going. Loops and instruments included are pretty cheesy, JamPacks make it versatile.

      Summary

      If you have Garageband with all of the available JamPacks, you have an arsenal of over 10,000 instruments and loops that are mostly MIDI and fully customizeable to make them yours. The interface is extremely easy to navigate, even almost elementary like. Highlight, split track, press delete... *shazam* all your white noise between vocal takes are gone. Pitch correction is pretty good for vocals, not so over the top like Cher or Lil' Wayne. As far as synth tones, vocal effects, and mastering effects... You just need to sit down with it and create your own tones to really feel the magic.
