Garageband Hints & Tips & Help: Using Garagebands Visual EQ Analyzer

One of the cool new features in Garageband is the automation of effects! I open up the visual EQ and click the analyze function so I can see the frequency changes as the effect changes over time! Give it a try!

Garageband Tips and Help: Create an Apple Garageband Master Template File To Speed Composing!

One of the great things about Apple's Garageband is the ability to
compose songs quickly. The program doesn't get in the way of creating
music, which is why it is my favorite music creation program of all

To make creating new songs on Apple's Garageband even faster, I
create a Garageband file I call master. This file is preconfigured
with a variety of instruments I use often... piano, bass, a simple
drum loop, strings, percussion, vocal, guitar, etc... and I also set
up a master track with FX set the way I like (for me, long reverb, a
slight amount of compression and visual EQ set to reduce heavy bass
from entering output)

When I want to create a new song, I pull up this master file, and am
then ready to roll instantly!
Give it a try!
