Chapter 13. Recording Music

Create a Magic GarageBand Song

You can use the Magic GarageBand feature to quickly record a song using a set of virtual instruments in one of nine genres. After you customize the instruments to get the sound you want, GarageBand builds the song and opens it in the editing interface.

Magic GarageBand can be useful when you are new to GarageBand and want to create a song to experiment with. You can also use it to quickly create background music for other iLife projects.
