  • It is easy to edit in the way that you can highlight something and simply delete a part of what you are working on.
  • I love that I can drag two or more tracks together to keep them in sync when editing.
  • It's not difficult to add a click track when you need it.
  • I think the whole process of highlighting, cutting out parts and the basic editing doesn't take huge amounts of time because it seems intuitive.
  • I think it's a little confusing as to tweaking the EQ of a track. I don't find it intuitive and sometimes can't re-find it.
  • The ability to edit the EQ or the entire project also doesn't seem easy to find or make consistent.
  • I also wish it was easier to find the set up for midi

  • Easy to manipulate multiple tracks
  • Simple export of MP3's
  • Offers different size MP3's to export
  • Can't save the preferences for the tracks such as turning off reverb etc.
  • Project files are large, a 30-minute podcast episode with only 4 tracks is typically around 1 GB
  • Auto feature to silence guest not talking
  • Optimize for podcasters (I use the old version 6 as new versions hasn't had podcast options)

  • Easy and simple interface that can be used by anyone.
  • The visual audio levels are great and help to clean out all the impurities in an audio.
  • Comes freely built in with all Mac computers, which are widely used.
  • Very user-friendly and intuitive at the same time.
  • GarageBand can be self-taught with no experience.
  • GarageBand has large project files which can easily fill up the storage.
  • It sometimes causes the Mac to heat up while other similar software don't tend to do that.
  • Not for the top tier professionals, as it is a more beginner friendly software.
  • Lack of effects. GarageBand is pretty basic, but gets the job done.
  • Lack of pre-sets to edit audio faster.
  • The biggest flaw is that it is only available on Apple devices.

  • GarageBand is very intuitive
  • GarageBand is easy to learn
  • It would be nice to view the dB levels like in Final Cut Pro X, so I could easily keep recordings at the same level.
  • Adjusting the audio levels doesn't always go as planned because it is easy to move the audio level line past your desired level.
