Part I: Building a Hit > Setting Up the Garage

Chapter 1. Setting Up the Garage

GarageBand is a great name. It calls to mind all the great bands that began as amateur acts that rehearsed in some kid's garage. The name suggests the homemade, independent nature of the music you'll be making. It even carries overtones of the us-versus-them, little-guy-against-The-Man, counterculture spirit that Apple has always embraced.

The truth is, though, GarageBand is practically incapable of producing anything but professional, polished music—a far cry, that is, from the slightly out-of-tune, drum-heavy work of true first-time garage bands. That's where the name isn't such a slam dunk.
