O’Reilly has announced the release of “GarageBand: The Missing Manual” by best-selling author and New York Times columnist David Pogue. In the US$19.95 book, Pogue explains the two ways GarageBand can create music–digital recordings (sound recordings that Apple calls “Real Instruments”) and MIDI recordings (built-in synthesizer sounds that Apple refers to as “Software Instruments”)–and advises readers when and why to use each. He explores every GarageBand feature in depth and offers shortcuts, workarounds, hacks, tricks, and troubleshooting advice. He also includes advanced GarageBand techniques for power users.
