One of the hottest items at last weekend’s NAMM conference (International Music Products Association) in Anaheim, California, was GarageBand, the newest addition to Apple’s iLife suite of tools. “The large Apple booth was complete with theater (seating about 100 people and never
having an empty seat at the GarageBand demo),” Daniel East, president ofSize Thirteen Music, told MacMinute. “Both seasoned touring musicians and novice ‘wannabe’ people stood almost 10 rows out into the trade show isles to catch an eye and earful of Apple’s latest.”
