    I know there's at least one Mac user in these forums, could you give me a bit of help regarding Garageband? On the PC I'm using a program called CoolEdit that I use for a bit of light mixing. Can Garageband do this?
    I need a few basic sort of filters, fade-ins, delays, pitch shifting and the ability to open several audio files open at once.
    Has it got this or should I be looking for a 3rd party tool?

    I'm nearly 100% sure Garageband can do that.
    Granted, I've only used it twice, but I've read a lot on it.

    Yes, GarageBand can do many things.

    I'm sorry but I'm going to use this Garageband question thread to my advantage and ask a Garageband question myself. What are you guys using as the PC substitute of Garageband? I mean...I've tried many things but I just can't find one as good, and I really wish I could.

    Cakewalk, Acid, and FruityLoops are all good.
    I'm pretty sure Cakewalk is the equivalent of Logic and GarageBand for PCs.

    I want to try out Cakewalk. Acid didn't do the job for me, and Fruity Loops just isn't the same. I have no problem using like Magix or Adobe Audition for mixing purposes, but I really want a PC program with the composing abilities of Garageband. Is Cakewalk good for that?
