If Nine Inch Nails can record & mix tracks with GarageBand, you can too! Realize your musical vision with this amazing audio sketch-pad.
GarageBand '09 is an incredible, full-featured "studio in a box" that can be used to create any style of music imaginable. In fact, it's so good for making music, that even pros like Nine Inch Nails use it to make their albums. And best of all, it comes with your Mac!
For this GarageBand Core training, we retained the instructional services of one of the best musicians in the world - J.F. Brissette (formerly the Musical Director of Cirque Du Soliel's "O" in Las Vegas).
In this 4-hour tutorial you'll learn how to record, edit, and mix real music in GarageBand. Created from a playing musician's point of view, you'll start with an exploration of how GarageBand's interface works, then move directly on to recording your first musical takes. From selecting and trouble-shooting your audio interface, to setting up a metronome and working with tempo, you'll learn all the tricks you need to know to lay down great sounding audio.
If you don't have a full band at your disposal, don't worry! The tutorial next moves on to explore audio loops. You'll learn now to select and audition loops, how to add loops to your song, how to edit and effect loops, and more.
In the second half of the tutorial you'll explore techniques for arranging your song. This section is followed by a detailed exploration of mixing techniques that will show you how to get the best sound possible out of your arrangement.
Once the song is finished, it's time to share it with the world. The tutorial ends by showing you how to create a final song file. You'll even learn how to turn your arrangement into a custom ring tone, or add it to iTunes so you can listen to it any time you want!
This is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't need to watch the whole show. use the detailed menus and keyword search feature to quickly find topics of interest ... that's the essence of NonLinear Educating!

Very precise and easy to follow.
Very professional tutorial, and coming from me that's a big compliment considering that I am only an amateur who sings a bit and knocks out a few chords for fun. Steep learning curve, but very exciting, and I am having a ball going over the tutorial. I won't be doing Carnegie Hall anytime soon, but I will definitely gain a lot from your program. Thanks a lot!
I found this a very interesting and informative form of training. The trainer has a very laid-back and open approach, obviously aware of the limitations of those he is tutoring. I learned much and will most certainly be looking for further tutorials. I can certainly recommend this.
This is the firs tutorial I have downloaded, and I have to say it was a very pleasant surprise. The lessons were easy to follow and enjoyable. I really think this is the best way to get the most from your application. Now that I've worked through Garage Band, I can't wait to get started on Logic and Recording Guitar in Logic.
I'm about half way through this tutorial. The content is good, relatively easy to follow, providing good incite in the use of Garageband. However, I find the audio quality poor. Difficult and tiring to listen to so for this, I drop the rating from five to three.
Great tutorial. The "teacher" was very patient and all the lessons were brought smoothly... Now, I feel like a "pro" (or semi-pro!). Thank you... I even bought the downloaded version of this tutorial for an anterior use... F.B. Canada
This tutorial was very helpful. It was set up in a manner that allows me to return to sections I need to repeat easily. The presenter was clear even when presenting fairly complex moves in the program, and the progression was well planned. I am certain I will return for additional tutorials.
This is my 3rd purchase but it will not be the last...I went from a standing start to full jedi warrior in an afternoon.. When my music partner saw how I effortlessly manipulated tracks he asked for the url... Thanks guys Tom
This is an excellent video to learn how to use Garageband 09, and build a project, and what keyboard shortcuts you have available. It also explains well, how to use audio and midi files in Garageband, and is easy to understand.
I have been a user of GarageBand for over a year and thought I knew most of it. I bought the course, because it was on sale, but I didn't think I was going to learn much. To my surprise, I learned a lot! I learned many awesome tips that I had no idea existed. The instructor also takes you step by step on how to create loops more effectively with edits. The compositions are well made. You guys should change the course from Core to Complete!!! It was really good and comprehensive.
I have only listened to the first few parts of the tutorial, but I find it very clear, well paced and informative. The tutor's voice is very easy to listen to and it gives the impression that he is speaking to you personally as opposed to narrating a script. I'm looking forward to working my way through the rest of the program.
Garageband '09 101 is well paced, very thorough, good visual presentation and quite informative. Although much information is included in 101, it leaves you wanting more. When will the next course be available? What are the differences in Gband and Logic Express, so a progressive student can advance to the next level?
Great tutorials, very fun and useful.Highly recommended. Thanks.
I think this video tutorial is a great introduction for the new user of GarageBand. Well done MacProVideo and J.F.Brissette.
I'm very, very pleased to have come across your website and the products you offer. Had I known about your site before, I would have not spent money on some other products that cost more and are of an inferior nature. Thanks for putting together some excellent products!
I love it! It is the best tutorial I have watched from both your company and others. His voice is really easy to listen to. Not the typical radio voice or the serious techy type persona. Fun to watch and lots to learn. I look forward to buying his part 2!
Great tutorial. Full of useful tricks and workflow tips. I found the loops editing to be particularly inspiring. I had always felt apple loops to be limiting, but it was my knowledge that was limited, not the loops. Giving it a 4 instead of 5 because it keeps me hanging waiting for part 2!
