Don't laugh but...

I finally got round to copying all of the Garageband loops from my Mac Mini to take to the studio to fully evaluate them. Don't laugh but...

There are some very usable loops there. Good quality samples considering what they were created for. I loaded a hip-hop drum loop I liked into Acid and gave it some support by also adding a funk drum loop and another sparser hip-hop loop.

All together they sound really, really fat and really tight. Not bad at all. Anyway...

I had played around with Garageband for about 6 months using my Klipsch speakers in my den. I was not impressed partly because of the mini's slow disk drive and how slow the app works when you try to do something serious in it on the mini.

In the studio? I'm impressed. I'm gonna go through them all and cut some individual drum hits away for Fruity Loops to use. There are some very good samples lurking in there.

I took the Hip Hop kit and sampled it into an SP-1200 that I borrowed and had no sound discs and I needed some sounds PRONTO for a project.

Turned out amazing thumbsup
