Has anybody ever heard of the software "Garageband". I know it's for recording, but does it also act like a loop pedal as well? Does anybody have Garageband, and what do you think of it?
It is mac exclusive and if you have one of the new iMacs or a Powerbook/Macbook or Macbook Pro they have an audio line in jack so you can use one of these: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/garagebandcables
I have one and it works great. The best thing is that there is no need to go through a mixer and then into your computer.
I know some bands have actually recorded stuff specifically for 'Garageband'. I don't own a mac, but my sister loves them, she explained this to me about a year ago.
You download the specific GB song and you cna go in and change pretty much every separate aspect of the song. Make certain instruments louder, higher, I think you can actually change the instrument type.
I know nothing about recording, so never mind this if it's basically what you can do anyway, but yea.. She played some song with 2 guitars and drums, she changed one guitar to a violin and the drums to be more electric (the electric drum? idk). It was pretty cool.
