Take Control of Recording with GarageBand '11

Book Description

This book explains how to use GarageBand '11 to create musical compositions with vocals, drums, guitars, MIDI keyboards, and even the kitchen sink! Seattle composer Jeff Tolbert shares his GarageBand know-how and years of recording experience to help you get the most out of your existing gear or purchase new equipment that fits your budget and style. You'll find out how to plan a recording session, and you'll learn real-world recording studio techniques, such as using a microphone effectively, getting the best sounds from your gear, applying effects like a pro with the 12 GarageBand amps (including 7 new ones!) and the greatly expanded selection of stompbox effects, recording multiple tracks at once, and using Flex Time and Groove Matching to fix mistakes easily. Two example songs demonstrate many of the techniques discussed.
