Take Control News/20-Mar-06

New Take Control Ebooks Cover GarageBand 3 — Regardless of your musical experience, if you want to make the most of GarageBand 3, follow along with Seattle musician Jeff Tolbert as he shows you how to work creatively with GarageBand and get the most out of its features. In "Take Control of Making Music with GarageBand," you’ll find step-by-step directions for using GarageBand’s built-in loops to plan, edit, mix, and export a tune, and in "Take Control of Recording Music with GarageBand," Jeff covers how to get the most out of existing gear and what to purchase, as well as real-world recording studio techniques, using a mic, and applying effects. Both ebooks include linked-in audio that lets you listen to Jeff’s examples while you read about them. If you own an older version of one of these ebooks, click the Check for Updates button on the cover of your copy to find update information.
