No, it's possible to run it on a cracked version of OSX on a normal computer though, but that would be illegal

Buy a Mac.

once you go mac, you never go back.

I've learned that the very easy way.

Why does everyone want garageband so bad? I mean it's cool at first and it's ok for recording, but there are much better programs out there. I only use garageband because it came free on my computer and I'm too lazy to learn how to use logic.

I like garageband just for getting ideas down. It's kind of like the DAW equivalent of notepad or paint.

Reaper and Audacity are pretty cool, I use Reaper to record and Audacity to mix, they're both free and work on PC.

I don't even know if this is relevant.

Yeah, that's cool and all, but Garageband really isn't a huge reason to get a Mac. I mean, Logic and Final Cut might be if you're big on making movies or recording, but stuff like garageband and iMovie aren't reasons to get a Mac.

But the thing is, other than money, there are no reasons that you wouldn't get a Mac.

They are just fantastic pieces of technology, a brilliant OS, great hardware and as an added bonus they look great too.

True, I love my Mac. It's so much better, unless you game which I don't.

Agreed.

Nobody on this forum even mentions Logic when they're talking about macs, because they don't know anything about anything. Logic is awesome.

I have a Mac at school (every student gets their own MacBook for use inside school only) and I adore the thing.

Seriously, get a Mac, there's no equivalent.

OMFG!

The guy asked a simple question and you dolts turn this into a Mac vs. PC thread.

To the TS: No, you can't get Garage Band for the PC. However, there are alternatives such as Fruity Loops, various Sound Software, etc, etc.
Hey look, a stoner/doom album.

I downloaded a torrent of Logic, but I don't really know how to use it. I suck at recording .

ditto. I have Logic and I use that when I "record" "record" but I'll use garageband to demo and record things for reference.. It's convenient like that.

Read the manuals in the Help section. That's what I did at first..

I answered it in the very first post.

Same, there's really nothing better for that sort of thing. Audacity and stuff are too simple and don't have many features and the better stuff is a bit complicated for what you want to do. The effects are relatively good for messing around with and the midi stuff can be great fun too. comparing it to notepad or paint is a bit unfair though. When I use them, I'm always like "shit, I can't do what I want to" but I never have that problem with garageband...

That's because it is so expensive. I was going to torrent it to see what it is like but I didn't bother. I take it it's worth a look at then?

^ Sweet zombie jesus yes Logic is the best thing ever. Even Logic Express (only around $200) is phenomenal for both recording and mastering

Yeah, if you're using a PC I would suggest both programs. You can't get an actual version of Garageband on a PC unless you're running an Apple OS illegally on it.

However, if you're looking for a great music program for PC and have the money for it, I would suggest either Sonar or Samplitude. Both programs are fantastic. Not as nice as Logic Pro IMO, but nice nonetheless.

Logic Pro FTW.

Edit: and I agree with sargasm, Garageband is very nice for simple, "not my final cut" stuff.
Thus sayeth the Lord.
