Not yet a pro tool, but it does the trick
With a very good gamma of drums, synthesisers, pedals and amps, Garage Band is an amazing tool to Record Demos, but that is all. There are some key features which are still lacking in this tool which are available in every pro Tool for professional recording, such as multi recording tracks for one channel.
Apart from that, if you want to record Demos for your band, that's exactly what you are looking for.
Terrific tool for demos
I have used this to record demos for other musicians and for the recording studio where I will be working, so that the producer has an idea of what I am looking for. It is relatively easy to learn how to use and you get pretty good results out of it. You have to watch for feedback when doing the guitar tracks in particular and I found that recording the guitar is best using an acoustic with an external mike and then choosing the electric sound you desire afterwards. There are some great tutorials on line for those who are starting out. One in particular is called "How to Make A Song in Garageband".
For the hobbyist
I use GarageBand at work and at home for fun. It's very intuitive and a great way to kill time on a Tuesday night. From recording music, to playing with all the various amp/effects the program has to offer, it's given me to try out styles I have yet to explore. There are better recording programs out there, but this is perfect for knocking out a quick idea.
My first music software.
I thinks it is great to start with, it is a cool way to get introduce into the music production and recording world because it is amazingly simple to use. Even now I still use it when I have my laptop and I just want to throw some ideas into a track, that way I can try them fast and easy before I´m sure I will use any of them.
