    Atari 1080 Running Emagic

    I've dabbling in home recording since I was a kid - and that's a long time ago! - with my dad's Fergusson reel-reel tape recorder. (I bet you've never heard of Fergusson!) That was horrible - cheap & nasty mic, and very unreliable. But as a teenager, I played in a Gospel...

    Differences But Still Great

    GarageBand

    I use GarageBand to record my music.  Usually I just buy an instrumental karaoke track for a song, import it into GarageBand, and then sing over it wearing headphones, using the internal mic.
