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.
Great for what it is
A useful tool alongside the scarlett and the helix we own for recording demos. Extremely good for what it is, free and a decent recording software. Not to mention the programmable instruments you can put in if you don't already have them ready. We recommend using this highly as a pre-recorder. We do not recommend for final takes of the song unless you are on a low budget.
Free with Purchase
This is the only DAW I have worked with so far, but it works fine. The pre-equipped instruments are not of the greatest quality and mixing on it is kind of meh, but I cannot complain too much because it is free. I am able to record and make songs with it so I am alright with it for now, but I would like to upgrade to FL Studio or ProTools when I get a little extra money.
Great platform to start learning producing for free
One day, i have clicked to its icon on my app list when i was bored like hell and nothing to do. I thought it is a kind of playground where you pick pre made loops and connect them together to make sense and have fun. It was not like that at all... and now i am into music producing and learning it. If you have a mac, then you have a free nice DAW to start something creative, before getting into professional stuff. I even have listened rewarded music produced with garageband. Do not underestimate it.
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".
