In this Instagram video clip, posted by Matthew Followill, he can be seen running Apple's GarageBand software on his MacBook Pro. He has recorded a riff using his newest Telecaster (newest guitar as of Sept 2014), and says, "Here is what the new Telecaster sounds like! #letsrock"more
In [this NPR interview](http://www.npr.org/2014/01/01/258889976/after-three-years-six-injuries-75-million-spiderman-musical-ends) with Glen Berger (author of "Song of Spiderman: The Inside Story of the Most Controversial Musical in Broadway History" and co-writer of the show), it's explained that Edge used GarageBand to demo songs for the production. Edge can also be seen using the software briefly in the film *It Might Get Loud*.more
Guitar Player interview: “I rarely have time to practice at home, but when I’m on tour, I plug my guitar directly into my laptop,” he explains. “GarageBand has all the classic guitar sounds built in, so I can dial in some tones, listen to a few songs, and steal licks from horn players and other guitarists. My private laptop sessions are also valuable for getting myself comfortable with any new tunes we’re performing live. I just have the studio engineer burn rhythm tracks of the songs, and then I transfer them to GarageBand, and play over them until I feel more confident about soloing onstage.”more
"I use Logic Pro a lot. Everything is integrated, there’s no external interface, it’s fantastic. I use it as a large sequencer, it’s like the nerve centre of the recording process. I also have it installed on my MacBook Pro. I’ll be going on tour soon and I’ll be able to continue working on my next album. I use GarageBand too, particularly as a notepad to write down all my musical ideas."more
Very easy layout, and some amazing mixing possibilities. You really can sound good with this DAW, but there is no mixing bar. You also can't write automation like you can in other DAWs. Also, you can't add plugins (to my knowledge), if you could you'd have better mix outcomes. Though, if you use the proper mic-ing technique, and got some epic mixing chops you can still sound pretty good. Mastering, also helps. Everything (except "Underneath The Moon" which was recorded in Audacity) I've posted on Soundcloud in the last year has been made on some version of Garageband.
GarageBand is free DAW that is capable of making beats, mixing, recording, and much more. People tend to overlook this because it's free but it's not all that bad, it is a great DAW for Artist who can't afford an engineer or can't afford a DAW to mix. This is also great for producers who are on a tight budget and just want to make beats.
I use Garageband mostly to record my songs with friends or by myself although sometimes i use it just to play with the sound i get with my iRig. It's easy and fun to edit on. You can add synthesized drums, piano, guitar and pretty much any other instruments, it also has some recorded loops you can add and of course an acoustic recorder built for acoustic guitars, and an over 20 amplifiers you can choose from to play an electric guitar through.
