GarageBand opens with a simple set of templates for making popular tunes. If you're the kind of songwriter or composer who just wants to get notes into a DAW with a great set of sounds, quantise with a click, and for everything to sound great in minutes, then GarageBand is the DAW you're looking for.
Everything flows and there's zero time searching for features (changing synths, adjusting velocity, trimming note lengths) as it's all just 'there'. As long-time Logic users, GarageBand has really opened our eyes as to how much we actually need those 'powerful' features. No lie.
It's a popular misconception that you can't use plug-ins in GarageBand but a couple of clicks reveals the familiar Logic-style AU tree letting you jack with any of your synths and effects.
Smart Controls even does a great job mapping knobs to commonly used parameters. Quantising regions, building tracks in the arrange window, recording, editing... there's even super easy-to-use automation (of the most granular parameters) that positively flies in use.
Sure, 'pro features' are missing but time and time again we found that what we actually needed was right there, up front and obvious.
On iOS, GarageBand has had a serious kick in the useful pants with the addition of Live Loops. There's still the 'fun' 'intro' Smart Instruments (strum a guitar that's always in tune) and a Tracks view akin to the desktop, but Live Loops is like a whole new DAW in itself.
Instruments are replaced by Style buttons (EDM, Hip Hop, Dubstep etc) and the arrange view is replaced by a clip launcher akin to Ableton Live with an APC controller attached. Hit a region and it plays. Loops, in fact. Press another and it does the same, in sync with the first. Press again to silence.
Everything you do sounds great and it's possible to turn in an amazing-sounding 'hot knobs' DJ performance with zero effort or practice.
Of course, the feature only really comes alive when you start adding your own loops alongside the (superbly recorded, highly-numerous) presets but that's easy enough.
Loaded up, you could conceivably run an entire Ableton-style set with just your iPad. Or phone for that matter – but the extra room on the iPad Pro really comes into its own and the audio quality of the output can't be faulted.
If you're an iOS fan then there's no reason not to make GarageBand your next favourite app and, if only for fun, I strongly suggest you give Mac GarageBand another spin. You might not go back.
I've tried several other, less expensive Jasmine rice brands but I keep coming back to this one. This rice is exactly what it should be. easy to fix, delicious, perfect texture and flavor. I love to pair it with my Panang Chicken curry. I'd definitely recommend it
I love coming here because it's nearby and the staff are so welcoming. Another plus is that they got stamp card program. Once it's filled up, you can order any kind of beverage for free. I recommend to get the large size to make that free drink day worthwhile!!! One of the workers mentioned that even though the card expired, they will still stamp it. But you need to redeem your free drink by the expiration date or all those stamps are worthless.
The ice blended drinks are my favorite beverages to order from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. One thing for sure is that you don't have too much ice because it's blended and it refreshing during those warm summer days :) Their iced mocha, vanilla, or hazelnut lattes have too much ice in them. But the time you know it, I drank my entire beverage up and just the ice is left over.
The drink sizes such as the regular is much bigger than tall size cup from Starbucks (lil kiddy cup). I feel I get my money worth it than purchasing a tall iced vanilla latte or iced coffee from Starbucks.
This is the only antiperspirant I've found that honestly leaves NO marks on my clothing. Even when using black clothes. It goes on dry, and it seems to work fairly well at keeping perspiration at bay. The scent is really good and I really feel comfortable by wearing it, i would definitely recommend this!
I really love these mints, specially the name, the sense of humor, the taste and the package. Tastewise, these mints are perfect because they're not too strong or too weak, they are perfect to my taste. Also, I can use the package for storing my guitar picks afterwards. They're awesome!
One of the best coffees I have had from Starbucks. I would describe it as dark but creamy and smooth. I am not one for acidic coffees so this one was a dream! I love the small touches of spice you get with this coffee. I wish they sold it all year! I'd definitely buy it again
Firstly, I have been using this specific deodorant for 4 years. I originally started using it when other products started to give me an under arm rash, I noticed this one said for "sensitive skin" so I gave it a try. Since I have been using it I have not got any more rash or redness. It has a nice, pleasant smell and is not overpowering. Actually, it is rather unnoticeable until you are actually perspiring, which is what I think deodorant should do. Like another reviewer stated, if I want to have a stronger smell, I will use cologne or body spray.
Since I have used it for 4 years I have not lost one shirt to this deodorant... it does not stain. I thought I should mention this since another reviewer stated it stained all his shirts. Maybe he got a bad batch or has some sort of chemical imbalance...
In summary, if you have sensitive skin and or other deodorants have been bothering you with there wild smells, give this stuff a try.
While shopping for some chocolate, I came across this. Being a lover of Baby Ruth and Butterfinger, I thought it was right up my alley- and it was! The candy was wonderful, and the quantity was more than I expected. Although it was all good, there was one thing I noticed- the Butterfingers, when opening, did not hold up well in the shipping. A good portion of the Butterfinger candy bars were in pieces. I think this was the result of the package handling than the candy itself. Other than that minor problem, I would order this again!
These are the perfect size for giving out at Halloween for trick or treaters. I always buy ahead of time because I have soo many trick or treaters. I usually have 300-400 treaters so these large bags are just great. Delivery was FAST !!! I ordered last year and this year. Next year I will order again. I have mobility issues so ordering things online is just wonderful to me.
Let's face it, if you're reading this, you're probably not a hunter or a truck driver. You're some office dweller who likes to go out once in a while and smell good for your girl. Unless your wife or girlfriend has very specific preferences or is some kind of bloodhound, she'll likely find this appealing. I can't promise extra nookie or supermodels breaking down your door, but this might make the difference between a fun night out and an otherwise identical night out with at least one girl saying, "You smell nice." Worth it? You decide. Or do what real men used to do, don't bathe unless it rains and bring home wild boar. You won't get compliments, but you'll get their respect!
