Chapter 27. Real Instruments (Live Audio)

27. Real Instruments (Live Audio)

GarageBand is actually three programs in one. It's a loop-building program that lets anyone build great-sounding compositions, even with no musical training. It's a MIDI sequencing program that records whatever you play on a MIDI-compatible keyboard, guitar, or drum set. And now, as you're about to find out, it's also a digital multitrack tape recorder that can record live sound.

The beauty of GarageBand is that lets you layer these recordings on top of tracks that you've built using its other tools (like loops and MIDI performances), and play all of it back together at once. The creative possibilities that result are mind-blowing—and make possible a world where Joe Nobody, a guy with a great voice but no money, can produce a studio-caliber demo CD in his living room.
