MacVoices #1167: Jeff Tolbert Takes Control of Making Music and Recording in Garageband ’11
Jeff Tolbert, the author of Take Control of Making Music with GarageBand ’11 and Take Control of Recording with GarageBand ’11, talks about what’s new in the latest version of Apple’s consumer-level music program. Newly updated with features like Groove Matching and Flex Time, GarageBand continues to evolve. Jeff explains how these new features draw from, but don’t duplicate, the pro-level Logic program, who will make best use of them, and what it all means for both musicians and non-musicians who want to work and play with music. Also covered are some of the idiosyncrasies of the GarageBand synths, why Jeff thought one book would be easier to update than the other (and why he was wrong), and why GarageBand isn’t GarageOrchestra.
