    Hmmm... 4 hours and 5 minutes until my alarm clock goes off. I think my 'nighttime' cold medicine had the opposite effect. Anyway, here I am at 2:25 in the morning playing with Apple Garage Band. Might as well share... :help:

    Isn't GB fuuuun? :D

    I liked that, great start, seems like it has a lot of places it could go though, great bass tones.

    I thought about extending some of the parts and putting a second bass over the top, but there's no way I'd have gotten any sleep that way! Maybe that will be next. :)

    Man, GB is sooooooo cool, isn't it? I plugged my bass (Cirrus) right into the computer, tweaked the EQ on the "Bright Bass" setting a bit, added a little chorus and compression, and got a sound I'm pretty happy with for being a rank amateur at recording!

    Thanks for the feedback, WR!

    Watch out though dude, GB is a HOG! it really eats up your CPU, it loves RAM, give it all it can get!

    I've found if I have 4 heavily effected tracks, it stutters to a halt :(

    but, such is the way with many v1.0 releases, I'm sure it'll get snappier™ in the future, as more g4/g5 optimizations are thrown in, as well as cleaning up any errant code or whatever.

    have you checked out www.iCompositions.com ?

    50MB free webspace for hosting GB compositions, it's pretty neat.
