History of GarageBand

If you aren’t familiar with GarageBand, it’s essentially Apple’s consumer version of Logic Pro, a professional music-making application. GarageBand is included with every Mac and allows users to record music played with real instruments or virtual instruments, and then edit those sounds into a song. Now you might be thinking, okay that sounds great, by why did Apple make GarageBand in the first place? Was there really that many customers wanting to make music on their Mac? Well, in order to understand why Apple wanted a free music-making app for beginners, you need to understand Apple’s goal for the Macintosh during that time.

Remember when Spotify started allowing indie artists to upload music in their site? Apple could beef up GarageBand for amateurs a bit and then give a little more power for indie artists on Apple Music. So more people could create and upload music to Apple Music. This will significantly expand Apple Music library, users, and creators. Also, this means GarageBand lifespan is lengthened for a bit.

I cut my teeth on using GB in the mid 2000’s nicely and yearly the software got better. But, if your an advance user, not a newbie like I was, GB has it’s place. How many computers could you do many things out of box? At one time Apple really made sense. True, most consumer PCs come with stuff, but most of that stuff is garbage. Usually loaded with trialware, adware.. just junk. The Mac on the other hand came with a whole useful suite and if you didn’t need it such as GB or iPhoto, you could easily uninstall it. But, it didn’t bombard users to upgrade, give time limits or buy anything, and it was free. Apple used to be a very generous company, in 2007 when I bought my Mac pro Quad I received a coupon for Logic, that was a step up from the GB all macs came with. Not only did the coupon entitle me to a cheap copy of Logic, but an upgrade on iLife 2008.

I have never found much use for GarageBand, but I have definitely have found a TON of use out of iMovie. I’m more of a video person than audio.
