Go beyond the sound of one man jamming with these helpful tips for your homemade recordings.

 

Difficulty Level:
Easy

What You Need:

> GarageBand 3 or later (current version is GarageBand 5, part of iLife ’09, $79, www.apple.com)
> A GarageBand project you’ve already assembled, whether it consists of live instrument tracks you recorded via an audio interface, or software instrument tracks built in to GarageBand
> A microphone for recording vocals (optional, see step 7)
> Some time to tinker

GarageBand has done a great job of bringing user-friendly, intuitive home-recording tools to the masses.

Fortunately, with the application of a few simple pro-recording concepts, your solo projects can be so much more.
