Making Music with GarageBand and Mixcraft from Course Technology written by Robin Hodson is a comprehensive guide to music production using two of the most inexpensive and intuitive recording programs on the market today. Although easy to use, the tools included in GarageBand and Mixcraft are powerful enough to create music worthy of inclusion in professional productions, and their interfaces and workflows prepare users to work with pro digital audio workstations like Logic and Pro Tools. The first chapters introduce the programs and cover how to use them and how to get the best results from any computer setup. With a very gentle learning curve, the subsequent chapters guide the reader into using the programs to compose and produce great music. This book contains 12 specific lessons for GarageBand and 12 specific lessons for Mixcraft, and the lessons work for both Mac or PC. Topics covered include instruction on getting started with existing audio, working with MIDI, recording audio, podcasting, working with film, multitrack recording, mixing, mastering, and much more. The companion DVD includes bonus tutorials as well as audio and video exercises that correspond to the book's chapters.
