The singular reason I own a Mac

4
I don't like Apple. I don't like their ethos. I don't like their interfaces. I don't like their inflexibilty. I don't like their overarching control. I do however, for the most part, like Garageband and it's the only reason I own a MacBook Pro. It's not perfect and for a Windows user, I struggle with the paradigm shift from Windows shorcuts and control locations. However, I am willing to suffer given the perfect balance they have struck between power features and ease of use. But the feature that tipped me over into almost exclusively using Garageband is the auto-drummer. As a multi-instrumentalist who records all tracks myself, one by one, drums are the hardest. You can't do a one take scratch track so you have to go back and forth between drums and guitars until you get the groove and then start to lay down the serious tracks over the drums. And I'm not a great drummer either. With the drummer feature, I don't even bother recording my own drums anymore and just tweak what the app gives me.

I want the GB 6.0.5

1
I've been trying to understand this new GB version and it gives me stress. I miss using the Live Performace Plug-in and this new version is not even letting me download it. I need LIVE PERFORMANCE Voice plug-in. This is complicated, the voice sounds are not good.

Will not record multitrack

1
I've done everything except go to the Genius Bar. I've record multitrack plenty, but then one day it just stopped. When I arm one track, it disarms the other. I use an H6 as an audio interface and have all the inputs set correctly (i've double checked plenty. Even the Zoom track 1 matching to GB input 3 if you're familiar). I've loved using it and hate to leave a 1 star, but this problem means I can't use it. So... one star.

I really like Garageband. I use it for dialogues and it has man great features for it. Like changing the vocals. I really love the telephone vocal feature it is so realistic! This is why Apple is the best because it gives you PREMIUM features and it is SUPER GOOD.
