How I Use It
Used this to make basic soundtracks for short film projects. I am not a musician and while making a few short films I really just needed intuitive music creating software. GarageBand is perfect for student use - complex enough to create real music, yet without the steep learning curve of more advanced music software.
My Take
Fantastic introduction to music production. A quick learning curve - even non-musicians can create tracks with relative ease. Like most, if not all, Apple software, Garage Band is very user-friendly. For any students dreaming of becoming the next Pro Tools master, starting out on Garage Band is smart first step.
