Overall Satisfaction with GarageBand

I use Garage Band both for my Voice podcast and for recording music that I can sell. It lets me put together my bi-weekly podcast with ease. Plus, when I need to record vocals or piano, I can do it right here at home using Garage Band as my software.
  • 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
  • It's came free with my computer--huge plus!
  • The ability to record talking or music is also a game changer.
  • It can record in minutes or measures, depending on whether you are doing music or speaking.
  • Positive in that was able to record vocals for a recording project that I was paid for.
  • Positive in that I'm able to put out a podcast so that I have listeners all around the world that can potentially become clients
  • Positive in that I can record audio for some of my online courses.
Way more user friendly. Audacity was clunky in the editing part and Garage Band is not. I love that everything is laid out in an eye friendly fashion. Audacity had too many tools laid out in a busy way where it's actually hard to find things. Also, since Garage Band is free to Mac users, it was kind of a no brainer switch because it's also good training for you if you eventually want to use LOGIC.

Would you buy GarageBand again?


Honestly, switching to Garage Band from Audacity for my podcast was a game-changer in the editing. I can do it so much faster with the tools that are available in editing--especially when you are dealing with more than one track to edit.
I also think Garage Band could be fantastic for recording a whole album initially before sending it to be mastered elsewhere. And I think Garage Band could be perfect for sync music licensing because it's still relatively easy to use!
