GarageBand '11 has proven to be one of the most popular DAWs in the world-and it comes free with every recent Apple computer. See how powerful and easy to use it really is in this revved up tutorial by mPV Star trainer, Scott Freiman...
In this tutorial Scott Freiman pulls Apple's GarageBand (GB) into his virtual "garage" and, with a NASCAR mechanic's passion for detail, shows you how this fine-tuned, hybrid DAW works.
You know, GB is designed to get you to the music fast! In the first section Scott puts the pedal to the metal by building a tune from scratch. Watching Scott make his musical decisions gives you a roadmap to learn all the fundamentals: from creating the first note to the final exported track!
From there, Scott accelerates into the workspace. You'll learn all about the timeline, navigation (no GPS in this release...), the Inspector, the Media Browser and the Notepad. Next you're upshifting into the loops and the awesome new "Flex" tool that can make any recorded audio fit right to the beat!
Speaking of audio, Scott cranks the subwoofer to talk about recording audio tracks while plugging in the included virtual amps and pedalboard. From there he makes a hairpin turn into the world of MIDI and software instruments where he covers all the basics of editing, quantization and the Score Editor.
He then screams down the last straightaway to cover all the cool things you can do while arranging and mixing. Finally, Scott gives you the checkered flag as you cross the GarageBand finish line by learning how to make your own podcasts and movie scores!
This Garageband '11 tutorial by Scott Freiman is not to be missed!

Very useful! I thought Garageband was mainly a beginner's app. Scott's tutorial taught a fellow Scott that I was wrong Great Tutorial series, as always, from MPV!!!

This is the most extensive Garageband tutorial I have ever had. Besides the amount of details, there is just something about the lessons that keeps the listener interested.

4 1/2 hours of easy to understand instruction and demonstrations for less than $20 -- no brainer. This will get you excited and confident to use Garageband '11. Plus you will always have the video to fall back on if and when you forget how to do a task on Garageband (and there many tasks to learn).
