We received word that GarageBand For Dummies is, at last, shipping. GarageBand For Dummies was written by TMOis own Bob "Dr. Mac" LeVitus, and (for full disclosureis sake) was tech edited by TMO Editor-in-Chief Bryan Chaffin. To seal the deal, both Bryan and TMOis president, Dave Hamilton, contributed to the book.
GarageBand For Dummies uses Dr. Macis traditional For Dummies approach to teaching you how to use GarageBand, but Dr. Mac dipped into his own past as a recording producer to also show GarageBand users some important recording techniques.
