Hey y’all! So I thought this assignment was actually pretty fun. I am very familiar with GarageBand. Not to brag, but, I have been using it ever since I got my first MacBook in 6th grade (oof.. long time ago). Anyways, I combined what I had written about in both my “About” and “Meet the editor” tab but I said it in a different way. For the intro and body/end song choices, instead of going with GarageBand’s boring old song selections (that I am way too familiar with after using it for years), I decided to go through my iTunes library and choose two songs from there. The intro song is Can’t Stop by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a fine classic if you will, and the body/end song that I chose is Make It Better by The Knocks. I chose Make It Better for my body/end song choice because I was going for that “up-beat” feel and thought it sounded very cheerful and happy. I did not really have much trouble with this assignment. My only aggravation was recording my voice and making sure it sounded perfect. I may have recorded myself at least 5-6 times till I was happy with how I sounded. Then after that I added in my songs, played with the volumes a bit so my voice did not over-power the body/end song, and faded in/out the songs on the tracks. Now that I am using music programs like Abelton Live, Cubase, and Logic Pro, they make GarageBand look like a piece of cake! I honestly forgot how simple and to the point GarageBand is. It is like the little “baby” of the music programs! I love it though because I have so many memories recording stuff and making songs back in the good ol’ days (not!) of middle school. Overall I am happy with my commercial and I hope you guys like it and see more of what beatsandgeeks is all about!
