Export custom music to iTunes and place it in your videos


Creating new music is a great deal more challenging (and can be more rewarding) than loading your CDs into iTunes and listening to them on your iPod. GarageBand, an application in the iLife suite, addresses the fun and complexities of music creation. It's an obvious coup for musicians, wannabe musicians, and those with hidden musical talents and dormant dreams. The world of copyrights and permissions may lead even less-musical types to explore creating their own acoustic content rather than ripping other people's tunes. In the case of, say, music that's played with movies and slide shows in the public arena, even a musically challenged business owner can quickly make some original music with no fear of recrimination.
