RECORDING A SOFTWARE INSTRUMENT TRACK

tip

If you have a USB music keyboard, just plug it into your Mac. If you have a MIDI model (one that only supports a 5-pin connector), you need a USB MIDI interface to bridge your gear to your Mac. Refer to “Hooking Up Your MIDI keyboard” in Appendix B, “Configuring Your Studio.”


While being able to play GarageBand's Software Instruments is fun in a “Let's all gather around the piano” sort of way, the real meat and potatoes of GarageBand is its recording capabilities. You learned how to lay down a rhythm track using Apple Loops in Chapter 2, “Making Music with Apple Loops.” Now you'll learn how to lay down some tracks of your own.
