SCO Garageband on the Mac-TUTOR
Soft / Video Lessons 24-09-2015
A long overdue show, this week I return to Garageband on the Mac.

It's been quite a while (can you believe 2008!) since I looked at Garageband on the Mac and since then the app has had a complete re-write.

It may have lost Podcast support, but with a new user interface and some stunning new features, it's still an extremely powerful and impressive application.

In the first of a three part series, I initially take a look at the basics of Garageband, following up next week with a look at some of the more new and advanced features.

The full tutorial covers:

Installation and Introduction
GarageBand User Interface
Additional Instruments & Loops
Using Loops
Working with Tracks
