Apples Garageband 2.0 sees a number of enhancements for creating your own tracks. Version 2 now adds eight track recording to the mix with a number of corrective tools to make the most of your inspired moments. First up is the pitch correction tool - used effectively on vocals in the demo we heard, the plug-in can straighten out most deviant mono recordings with a simple less and more slider. Another cool feature is the ability to change the character of a recorded voice – change gender and character will help you build up section vocals for that layered chorus. You can straighten out timing too – simply set the beat division you need to apply it to then move the slider until you get the desired effect. Once you have the right take, you can save in Apple Loop format for positioning at repeat choruses etc. Score Edit
While you’re recording Software Instrument performances, you can watch your performance unfold by viewing the tracks in full music notation. GarageBand generates notation in real time, instantly displaying notes, rests and other musical events. Great news for those of you who read music (and maybe even better for those who’d like to learn), notation view includes all common music notation symbols. That includes time signature, key and clef signs. GarageBand uses vertical lines to indicate divisions between measures. There’s a new Jam Pack – Orchestral Collection brings you 30 orchestral instruments each with its own articulation parameters and over 2000 Apple Loops. Instruments include: Strings, brass +wind, percussion and keyboards. Apple’s Garageband 2 is available as part of the iLife software and comes installed on every new Mac.
