OK, Garageband is extremely frowned upon by the audio community because the major part of the people who use it (99.9%) submit duplo music
Firstly, omfg wtf, where did you get that number from? Out of every 1000 submissions made with Garageband, 999 are composed entirely of loops? Also, excuse me for getting irrationally pissed off right now, but how in the flying fuck does people "misusing" garageband somehow turn it into a "frowned down upon" tool? Most every piece of software comes with a bunch of presets and loops, and, I can guarantee that they are all abused in the same way by n00bs.
I'm sorry, but if you look down on a software package because some of the users are fucking idiots, then you are at least as dumb as them.
If you hate Garageband because you're sick of hearing the same loops over and over again, then you have exceedingly poor meta-cognitive abilities and the intellectual reasoning of a fucking 8 year old. If you argue with this, then you have just proven my point, go sit in the corner.
As many people suggested, It's worth it giving Logic a try, reall,really worth it, it's an amazing piece of software which is used by the big wigs of music, You can makr practically anything with it, it's not very different from FL Studio, it has a playlist and stuff, so it's pretty damn sweet.
I haven't used Logic since 5.5, but as far as I can remember, it was nowhere near the same as FL. Also, GARAGEBAND IS FREE ROFL
I don't know about Reaper though since I've never even touched it, but it seems pretty sweet, based on Pictures and demo songs and stuff
but try to avoid garageband use :)
WHYYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?! Have you ever actually used it? OR have you seen pictures and heard demo songs and thought it seemed pretty gay? If you have used it, how long did you use it for? If you haven't used it for an extended period of time and come to grips with a fair amount of it's features, then your criticism is worth MUCH LESS than a bag of stinky, rancid farts.
I've never used Garageband in my entire life. I'd like to take a crack at it some day though, because I SUSPECT that it is nowhere near as bad as people are making it out to be. I don't have any particular basis for this theory, besides my past experience with popular opinion.
IF PEOPLE SAY SOMETHING SUCKS, IT'S PROBABLY AWESOME (ie, Skrillex).
CONVERSELY, IF PEOPLE SAY SOMETHING IS AWESOME, IT'S PROBABLY FUCKING WRETCHED (ie, Inception).
THERE ARE OTHER EXAMPLES.
Since you have a mac, which is extremely good for making music, invest in Propellorhead Reason if you have Money it's pretty damn sweet, if you need some tips or something contact the major users of Reason on NG, like SBB.
Look, if English isn't your primary language, then I apologize, but the words (and combinations thereof) "pretty", "damn", and "sweet" are absolutely meaningless when it comes to describing something as deep and complex as a DAW. From what I can gather though, you think that all DAWs are "pretty sweet" (including the ones that you haven't used), and that Garageband is something to try and avoid.
And also, Cubase is pretty sweet and many people here use it I think, I'd contact one of the best on NG who use Cubase, like Bjra .
Yeah Cubase is pretty sweet.
Hope I helped.
All I can say is that the only thing you've helped me do is cause me to post comments
