Publisher Description

This is the only interactive multi-touch eBook available for the application "GarageBand X (v10)"

"GarageBand X - How it Works" is not only the first manual available for Apple's new music production app "GarageBand X", it is the most comprehensive one. On 676 pages, the  author explains the app in great detail with additional background information that is often required to fully understand specific features. 

Many of the information regarding the functionality of the new GarageBand app is found neither in the official documentation nor anywhere else. No matter if you are a beginner or an advanced GarageBand user, the author provides easy to understand graphics and diagrams that let you understand and master the app. This interactive multi-touch eBook includes a 334 term Glossary that is linked throughout the content of the book.

This is the ninth book in the bestselling series "Graphically Enhanced Manuals". Readers love this uniques way of learning applications no matter how easy or complicated the app might be. Here are some responses from satisfied customers:

"I wish all the manuals on software were like yours!" - Giovanni C.

That is the motto of the book series "Graphically Enhanced Manuals" (GEM). They're a new type of manual with a visual approach that helps you UNDERSTAND a program, not just LEARN it. No need to read through 500 pages of dry text explanations. Rich graphics and diagrams help you to get that "aha" effect and make it easy to comprehend difficult concepts. The Graphically Enhanced Manuals help you master a program much faster with a much deeper understanding of concepts, features and workflows in a very intuitive way that is easy to understand

Garageband X - How It Works

After realizing there was no Apple manual for the new version of Garageband X, I went searching for an after market source. I was led to this authors work and read the reviews. The book does not disappoint. It is top notch. Also a lot of solid background on how OSX handles files, MIDI, audio.

Can’t ge better than that

The author Edgar Rothermich simple creates the best manuals available. I can’t imagine how much time he puts into creating these books. I’m so spoiled by his Graphically Enhanced Manuals that every time I have to read a regular text-based manual it is just painful. His books are full of information and in the case of this GarageBand book, I don’t think he left anything out.

Highly, highly recommended

Try the Flash Cards

I fooled around with the previous GarageBand app but now I wanted to get serious with this new GarageBand X. Like the other books I have from this author, thesis just amazing. It is so easy to learn all the elements.

The interactivity part works great. I played with the Flash Card feature based on the hundreds of glossary terms and it is really fun. This is not your dad’s manual. This is the new way to go.

I’m a GarageBand expert now, thanks to this book.
