So the project has rapidly drawn to a close and I feel quite sad. The young people I worked with were really lovely and I got goose pimples listening to the tracks they produced in such a short space of time.

Some of my favourites:

We also had a visit from MP Kevin Brennan who went round talking and listening to tracks written by participants. He discussed beat making, the benefits of music projects and disclosed how he uses Garageband at home. He spent a couple of minutes having a muck around with apple loops on Logic and

In just 4 hrs we managed to get all our tracks composed, burnt on to disk and some friendships were made. What a lovely day again! I should be getting a copy of the radio BBC WM interview that was taken and will upload it shortly.

Many thanks to Joy, Jamo, Dan and Liv for all their help!

nice beats bobbie, the young’uns got skills…
was recently introduced to the garageband jampacks, thought they were just a blag befoe but they are actually pretty heavy. been playing around with the remix tools pack, there are some seriously ill drum loops, personally i wouldnt spend £70 on it though, coz i dont really use it for work.
also, if ur interested in some more upscale shiznit, allow logic and reason its all about native instruments apparently…
free demo..

Hi Saad,

I do use Logic and Reason- but for a 2 hour workshop where social skills are just as important as musical Garageband serves me quite well oh and Logic Express.

If I have more than 2 sessions then yeah we do more with effects and shizzle.

Peace!
