… is now open for business. It consists of me, a few guitars, a keyboard… and Garageband.
But I must say, recording music is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I had a conversation with Nathan over the weekend, and he almost laughed at me when I was all relaxed and blasé about recording music.
I spent about 2 hours in my room just now, and didn’t even get one part of one track recorded! I did record several times, but each time I thought it was crap and wanted to do it better. But along the way I learnt a whole lot about Garageband and what it can do as far as EQs and filters go. Having just had a look through the Garageband website though, I realised that there’s actually so much more to this application that I haven’t even begun to touch.
It may not be up there with Pro Tools, but it’s a damn fine way to record your own tunes with basically no cost (assuming you already have the instruments).
