Big news from Apple. There's surround in QuickTime 7, for starters, in a Jobs demo, but GarageBand 2 is getting big changes:
- Included music notation
- 8-track simultaneous recording
- Automatic pitch and timing correction, including Vocal Transformer (the AutoTune-like pitch correction in Logic Pro 7)
- Part of iLife `05 US$79, available this week
In other news (all now up on Apple.com):
- iPod shuffle flash player
- $500 Mac mini (with FireWire 400 and USB 2, so could work for audio!)
- iWork productivity suite includes Pages plus Keynote
- John Mayer performance as always
- NO AUDIO INTERFACE, despite the release of GarageBand 05.
Stay tuned to CDM for more details. Thanks to Lee Sherman, live on the scene.
