GarageBand (Figure 17-1) is Apple’s entry-level DAW (digital audio workstation). GarageBand allows you to record, mix, and edit multiple audio and MIDI tracks together and then save them as audio files in a variety of formats. While GarageBand lacks some features of Apple’s other DAWs (Logic Express and Logic Studio), it provides a number of professional-quality software instruments and effects coupled with reasonable trackediting abilities (including volume, panning, and track automation abilities) that can easily create professional-sounding recordings. Additionally, GarageBand includes a few other features for fun and learning. In this chapter we will
