Question from a client: Is Garage Band Professional? Check out these major artists who use Garage Band, some on smash hits, some during demoing.
• Rihanna’s smash hit “Umbrella”. (Play “Vintage Funk Kit 03” loop at 90bpm)
• Usher • Trent Reznor – Best Score Oscar Winner & Nine Inch Nails • Seal “Kiss From A Rose” • Kate Nash • Limp Bizkit • Fall Out Boy • Panic At the Disco! • Courtney Love • T-Pain’s hit “I’m N Luv” • Oasis • Snow Patrol • James Blunt
None were mixed on Garage Band. They would record tracks on garage band, and then send to a professional mixer to get CD or broadcast quality. Below you can listen to Eugenia Johnson’s great song “Gas Me Up”. She recorded on Garage Band, some of it using loops, then sent to me to mix and add the pro vocal. It found a home on a Southern Californian Car Talk Radio Show. 🙂 See you in the studio! producer/mixer Gary Earl.
