- In this chapter we've been looking primarily…at Garage Band's built-in loop library,…and as you've seen, it's perfectly possible and fairly easy…to build an entire song completely out of Loops,…But I'd say in may cases you'll probably be using Loops…to add to a project in which you'll be recording…software or real instrument performances as well.…Many people just use loops to fill in…for instruments they don't have, can't play,…or don't have the ability to record.…One of the toughest instruments…to record well is a full drum kit,…which traditionally requires several microphones…and knowing where to properly place them.…
If you're a songwriter and you just wanna…get a demo of a song down,…setting up a drum kit and recording it…might take too long or be too daunting.…Now as we've seen you can turn to the loop library…in Garage Band and select from hundreds…or thousands of drum loops to find the loops…that best match the sound and feel you're going for.…Well, one of the drawbacks of using Loop's drums…is that you can't really change the performance itself.…
