Great tutorial. Thanks!

Fawn Gill says:

Eric, that was really, really good. Thank you so much for posting that. Totally made sense to me! Moving onto #2 now:)

maguswest says:

excellent tutorial. Broke my brain trying to learn from other folks who posted their own complicated manuals, but yours is clear, simple and easy to grasp. Good educational talent. Even your “glitches” with downloading the audio at the end of the tutorial works to benefit learners because you repeat the procedure and we repeat with you. Great job. Thanks

Scotty Weeks says:

Thanks Eric! I have been kicking around Podcasting for awhile now, but kept telling myself I needed special software and equipment. You just took all my reason away. THANKS!

Sherida Shenanigans says:

The Shiatsu Guy says:

Hi Eric, thanks for this tutorial. It was helpful to watch your workflow and pick up some new tips 🙂 I was wondering if you know about how to process voice recordings to take out peaks and troughs in volume? I seem to have a natural variance to my voice when I record myself… Would it be the compression plugin or something else?
Cheers 🙂

Easy Fitness Insider says:

Great tutorial. Thank you.!!

I subscribed and look forward to watching the iMovie tutorial in that I am new to all Mac programs.

Metal Tiger says:

Super helpful but I’m on GB ’11 and the interface is different – got the editing bit down but having trouble finding how I fade out the intro and fade in the out-ro! Also is the a way to automatically adjust the volume of the vocal podcast audio to the music intro / out-ro?

Laundry Series says:

Sulogno De says:

Great Garage Band tutorial! Answered a lot of my questions about adding tracks and music, saving as an .mp3 file, etc. Thank you, Eric!

Jill Griffin says:

very good! i will watch it again to get it all in my brain!!!

Dr Karen Hoving says:

When I start speaking it records over what I have said-there is an orange line and no matter how far I stretch it out it voice keeps folding over. I’m going nuts(a short trip for a shrink trying to create mp3 for meditation/hypnosis). I even went back to the older version 6 (waiting for my macbook pro to explode) bc I have made other mp3s on that and had no problem…I used podcast and dragged music over it. BUT this one (using voice) won’t let me record for very long…ObiWan of GarageBand HELP ME
