i use garageband, but everybody says that it is bad

i like it, i think that the stuff that i make on it sounds good


if i were to upgrade to ANYTHING, it would be logic

i look at logic and, on the surface, i can't see how they differ

i'm sure you know better than me, though


so really, what would be the difference???


please enlighten me with your knowledge

you can actually edit in logic.
you can take advantage of automation.

if garage band works for you, and you are able to fully realize your music with it, then use it.

yea sure you can cut in garageband. but doing things like creating sends and bus tracks, cross fades, and yea automation data is like setting it so it adjusts the volume for you as it bounces the track, so this might be like a fade out, or like making it so the reverb on a track turns up for a section of a song or not, its pretty much endless as to what you can do and create with it, as far as i know garageband can't do this.

i suggest you just pirate logic and a bunch of plugins and start playing around. it may even inspire a song or two.

here is an example of a technique called parallel compression, you may want to try it out if you get logic. its something you probably couldnt do in garageband. i like doing this technique on vocals and drum tracks.

thank you very much


yea those types of things that you talked about
were things that i was able to do in garageband
but definitely not as simply

i'm guessing that the automation works kinda like
it does in final cut pro for effects and stuff


i might try this out

thanks again

Use whatever you feel comfortable with. I use Pro Tools because that's what everyone else uses, and I want to be able to understand what's going on if I'm to record in a professional studio. I don't want to rely on some engineer if I need something done.
