Technical book publisher O’Reilly has released the latest entry in David
Pogue’s “Missing Manual” series:
“GarageBand: The Missing Manual,”
which covers version 1.1 of Apple’s songwriting application. The 304-page, US$19.95 book discusses both ways GarageBand creates music — digital or MIDI recordings — and digs deep into the software to reveal hacks, shortcuts and tricks. A former Broadway conductor and composer, Pogue even offers tips on writing and orchestrating songs, as well as how to make your own Apple Loops for use with the software.
