Apple today introduced an update to its suite of personal media tools, iLife ’11.
Included in iLife ’11 is GarageBand ’11. Here are the highlights:
- Flex time – lets you stretch or shorten recorded audio, interactively.
- Groove Matching – “a spell checker for bad rhythm” – select one track and the rhythm of other tracks is aligned to it.
- More guitar amps and effects
- New piano & guitar tutorials
- “How did I play” tool that injects a bit of Guitar Hero fun into practicing
Interesting fact: Steve Jobs noted that GarageBand now has 5 million users, making it the most popular DAW, by far.
