GarageBand and Audacity are the best music production software available today, used by thousands of musicians around the world. They help them create all kinds of music from Rock, Capella, Electronica, Hiphop. Best of both are free. So which audio editing software is best for you? In general, GarageBand is a light version of Logic, being a loop sequencer with audio processing abilities. It excels in the quick creation of short (about 60 minutes or less) audio projects that use many splices of recorded tracks in combination with pre-recorded loops or simple MIDI synths.

For my ITMA project today, I did quite a bit of playing around in Audacity and GarageBand. I have made a few podcasts, but I haven’t honestly played around with the software beyond recording and editing. I wanted to learn how to add music tracks to podcasts and how to diminish the music so it functions like an introduction.

Both programs allow you to add music and diminish it, but it’s much easier in GarageBand, and it’s also much more intuitive. I found I really liked GarageBand’s interface, too. I know that Audacity is free and available on multiple operating systems, whereas GarageBand is $79.00 as part of iLife ’09 and only available on Macs, but I would go as far as recommending using GarageBand over Audacity if you have a Mac. Everything I tried to do was just so much easier, and I had more options.

If you want to see what I’ve done so far with the podcast lessons, you can check out my work. I’m not done.

As of today, 98.25 hours on this project as a whole (150 hours required). I want to try to finish before I go on vacation in mid-July.
