GarageBand for Windows

October 16, 2007 17 comments

I was given the challenge to find GarageBand for Windows by my daughter. She had used GarageBand on a Apple at her school. I’m also hoping to use a product like this for working on my music (piano and drums). So this is my journey. Hopefully this will help you too if you have the same challenge.

Requirements:

  1. Take existing songs and mix them together.
    • Take short clips from songs
    • Adjust the tempo as needed
    • overlap songs
  2. Create new songs with a variety of inputs
    • Midi input from Keyboard
    • Midi input from Electronic drums
    • vocal input from mic
    • other existing songs (like the mix above)
    • other input from mic
  3. Easy to use
  4. Variety of output choices
    • CD
    • mp3
  5. Inexpensive
  6. Works on Windows XP with 512meg of Ram

Please add some comments if you have any suggestions.

Thanks.
