Apple took us to their tranquil room above the show floor to demonstrate their new GarageBand 3 release. The new version is heavy on the Podcasting features, with a new Podcasting track that allows you to drag and drop video, still images against an audio timeline. There’s more too, a new bank of royalty-free jingles and music beds mean that you’ll be able to produce a pretty professional sounding broadcast in minutes – assuming you have something interesting to say. Unfortunately, Apple can’t help you there... The new radio engineer feature, takes the a voice over track and automatically ducks the music level to keep the levels in check, whilst various presets for mic type, voice type etc make the most of the source material through EQ and compression settings. GB3 also integrates with iChat to provide chat show style recording of iChats. GB records the audio – one track for each person – nifty. Once finished, GB integrates with iWeb to publish your finished product, including web page either to your .Mac account or a local drive for publishing on an alternative website. Something tells me that we’re going to see an explosion in PodCasting very soon as GB3 ships with every new Mac as part of the iLife 06 package. If your iLife is of an earlier version, the upgrade will cost $79 dollars. Incidentally, the demo we saw was running on a new Intel based iMac, which in the words of Xander Soren, our Apple contact, “totally rocks�.
