The article details on the working features of computer software GarageBand. Demo-wise, GarageBand is great for getting song ideas down quickly, trying out alternate versions of a song by reordering sections and for simple remixing. It includes a selection of great-sounding loops just the thing to get those creative juices flowing. Although the program is missing functions one would find in a professional digital audio sequencer, GarageBand lets one record and play audio and musical instruments digital interface tracks and move the data around easily.
