About Podcasts

Podcasts are professional or homemade audio broadcasts that are available on the Internet. Unlike traditional radio shows that have set schedules, podcasts can be downloaded and listened to anytime in iTunes or on iPod.

If you’re interested in taking part in the podcasting revolution, GarageBand features amazing built-in tools that you can use to create your own rich and professional-sounding podcasts. Below are just a few tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of GarageBand to record your podcast.

Audio Recording

GarageBand is a streamlined digital audio workstation (DAW) which built in audio filters allow the audio track to be enhanced for recording guitar instruments, etc.

Virtual software instruments

GarageBand can play virtual software instruments for creating songs or playing music live using 50 sampled or synthesized instruments which can be played using a MIDI keyboard connected to the computer, or using an on-screen virtual keyboard. Additional instruments are available in the five GarageBand Jam Packs, separate products offered by Apple Inc.; each expansion pack costs approximately $100 USD and adds dozens of virtual instruments.
GarageBand 4, aka GarageBand ’08 the latest version, is part of iLife ’08. It incorporates the ability to separately record sections of a song such as bridges and chorus lines, support for automation of tempos and instruments, and a “Magic GarageBand” feature that includes a virtual jam session with a complete 3Dmtvtrlpresentsusher9h4syxfhj3el view of the instruments.

Interestingly enough this ‘starter’ music program has been recently used for composing genuine chart ‘HITS’ by Usher as well as countless other big name artists. Polow ‘DA Don’ the producer of the track clearly has has no problem using preset loops straight form the box within garageband to create top ten singles!
