Is Garageband considered for professional audio production?
Garageband isn’t less powerful than Logic Pro just because it’s free; People don’t pay attention to the things that are free in life. Just because it’s easy to get, it doesn't mean it’s not worth getting it.
I have been using Garageband since its release in 2004, and back then I used it to compose music for theatre.
With the continues improvements to Logic Pro throughout the years, Garageband has inherited some of the best features from its older brother. Tempo changes, Key changes, and some significant plugins for mixing and mastering, just to mention a few. GarageBand is a fully equipped music creation studio inside your Mac with a complete sound library that includes instruments, presets for guitar and voice, and an incredible selection of session drummers and percussionists as well as a vast selection of Synthesizers.
Can you make a professional recording with Garageband?
We can safely answer with a resounding YES!!

I have been using Macs for over 15 years, and I have been teaching it for the last 10.
I am passionate about teaching and sharing my skills and discoveries with people who are willing to learn and share as well. I have used Windows systems in the early 90's, and I was a bit intimidated by the Mac when I purchased one for the first time almost two decades ago. So If you are a Windows user, I know what you are going through.
I honestly believe the Mac can change the way you work or perform your art, without the hassling of fixing things that don't deserve your time.
I started using my mac in my early music career by composing soundtracks for theatre, then moved to writing my music and used programs such as Garageband, Logic Pro, Protools and others extensively. I also have used Final Cut, iMovie, After Effects for some years in depth.
I am passionate about investing and have five years of experience in property investing, Forex, and trading in general.
I don't consider myself an expert. However, I have dived into different fields in the last 20 years that got me involved in the professional partnership.
Things I do and am passionate about:
If any of these topics interest you, please let me know, and I might create something I can share with you. I love suggestions, positive and negative constructive feedback that can help me improve and deliver my best to you.
