Excellent learning tool,
This review is from: Apple Training Series: GarageBand 3 (Paperback)GarageBand 3: Create and Record Music on a Mac is encyclopedic in scope and of great interest to anyone with an interest in digital audio production, including podcasting. Although I use a Mac for work, this book and its accompanying DVD provided my first introduction to GarageBand 3--Apples' digital audio production software. Having heard good things about the program, I was already intrigued to learn more. However, as this was my first in-depth exposure to any type of digital audio software, I was also fairly intimidated-'I was apprehensive that I would need to be a competent musician before I even began. Despite these initial apprehensions I quickly found GarageBand3, by Mary Plummer, to be extremely well-written. It is easy to read. The book is well organized--full of clearly laid out, easy-to-follow instructions and examples.
The book provides details on how to record, arrange and mix music using GarageBand. In addition, there are instructions for how to record your... Read more

Thank You Ms Plummer,
This review is from: Apple Training Series: GarageBand 3 (Paperback)I did not know what GarageBand was until I explored the icons on my new MAC. Needed help here. Logged on to Amazon.com and found Mary Plummer's book GARAGEBAND 3. I am learning the program by doing the lessons in the book, supplemented with CD lesson files. I am truly excited because it has opened a new world--creating music tracks. Each lesson is a building block, and Ms Plummer's instructions are easy to understand and follow.

Recommended : a very good book,
This review is from: Apple Training Series: GarageBand 3 (Paperback)Having been given an Apple iMac complete with the GarageBand application, I was intrigued but at the same time a little apprehensive about trying it out. However, GarageBand 3 by Mary Plummer made it all so easy.
I decided to first do all the lessons; the instructions are clear and easy to follow, so it was a pleasure. I did sometimes take longer than the estimated time to do each lesson.
On completion, I had gained a comprehensive knowledge of all that this wonderfully creative program can accomplish, and was even enlightened as to what a podcast is. And if I forget again, the book is always at hand to remind me. I would have liked some comments about the advantages, if any, of other programs such as Logic.
My main interest with GarageBand lies in composing music, and this book introduced me to its many fascinating possibilities. So thank you, Mary Plummer. I must finish this now, to get back to Garageband....
