This course is a comprehensive guide to the popular digital audio software from Apple, demonstrating the tools and techniques to create, edit, and publish music and podcasts. Author Todd Howard covers the ins and outs of the application, from interfacing with external devices, exploring Apple Loops, and recording instrument and vocal tracks to creating successful mixes, performing edits, and sharing finished projects. Additionally, the course introduces the new features in GarageBand '11, including Flex Time and Groove Matching, which provide powerful methods for editing and tightening up the rhythmic timing of tracks.
Well, this brings us to the end of GarageBand '11 Essential Training. I've surely had a great time recording it and I hope you've learned some things along the way that will be helpful to you in your own musical endeavors. In the meantime, if you have any questions or run into something you don't know how to handle, I have a web site recommendation for you: discussions.apple.com. If you navigate to iLife and then choose GarageBand, you'll find lots of ongoing discussions. Many of the people who post questions and answers there will also point you to their own blogs or other sites so that you can learn from and participate in the GarageBand community.
Also, I've written a book called GarageBand '11 Power! and that may be of use to you as well. Don't forget to check back here at lynda.com in the Online Training Library for audio and music courses old and new that may be relevant. Keep on playing and recording your music and have fun with GarageBand '11.
