If you're a Mac user this is a free DAW that will come pre installed on your machine. It's very easy to use and has good instruction and how to tutorials built into it.

If you have problems there are always youtube videos out there that you can use to further educate yourself with (for free).
It recognize usb devices that are plugged in automatically. So, if you are using a midi controller or USB mic (for recording vocals) it would pick it up.


As far as stability it's pretty stable although if you have a problematic plugin installed it may crash garage band (which is not the fault of the DAW itself).

Garage Band is just as good as any of it's competitors out there in terms of audio quality. I will admit it's not as flexible as some of the others but again we are talking about a FREE application here. Can't complain much when we're talking about free tools.

I've been using this DAW since July of 2012 (that's when I purchased my MACBOOK)


The only thing I don't really like about Garage Band is it's graphic look (the GUI). Don't get me wrong, it's clean and really nice to look at I just wish it looked like some of the others on the market (maybe I'm just being picky).

It's one of the best DAWS out there in it's price range (again FREE you pay nothing for it.)

Audio quality is good, customer support is good (if you every contact customer support about anything). I've tried a lot of DAWS out there: Cubase, Sonar, Pro tools, Logic Pro and I can say I'd still fire up garage band over most of the DAWS I've listed because if it's simplicity.

It's just an easy program to use. In all honest if this program were not free I probably would have never tried it, so good marketing on Apple's part for including it with the MAC purchase
