MacVoices #20208: MacVoices Live! with Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus (1)

In spite of a technical difficulty, MacVoices Live! went on with featured guest Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus and panel members Dave GinsburgBrittany Smith, Frank Petrie, and Warren Sklar. In Part 1, Bob talked about his newest effort, GarageBand For Dummies, Second Edition. He explains why it was time for a revision, the track he recorded and used for his examples, and how you can use that very same track to help you learn. Roundtripping between the Mac and iOS versions, piano roll and notation editing, why you need a MIDI keyboard vs. your computer’s keyboard if you are at all serious about GarageBand are all part of the conversation. (Part 1 of 2)
