The software platform that fostered music creativity, The MJ community was there with GarageBand in 2004 and still is.

You have to love the fact that rather than being ensconced in Apple's giant glass starship HQ, the GarageBand unit is located a short ride away in the Apple equivalent of a windowless brick Garage. Wink

What really (and, pleasantly) surprises me about GB is the degree to which it has lately become “Logic Pro (Not-So) Lite.”   (I have both products.)   Apple is pouring plenty of very-advanced capabilities into a system that it gives-away to every customer ... and it is doing so on many fronts.   (Taken a look at iMovie lately?   Yes, I have Final Cut Pro also ...)

To me, that is a very smart move.

FYI:   Apple has always been spread-out all over Cupertino.   In fact, the original only-headquarters building is today known (IIRC ...) as “Bandy Three.”   The tiny loop-drive that connects them is the original “Infinite Loop.”

As for the thrust of the article, I remain more hopeful about human creativity than the author does – “whatever you do, don’t blame the technology.”   It is simply “the musical instrument” that we have today – an incredibly-refined version of a player piano and then some.   What you do with it is up to you ... and it’s what people pay for.   They don’t know exactly how you did it, and for the most part they don’t care.   They want to hear magic.   So, give it to ’em.
