MacVoices #20209: MacVoices Live! with Bob "Dr. Mac" LeVitus (2)

published 1 week ago by Chuck Joiner

Our MacVoices Live! conversation with featured guest Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus and panel members Dave Ginsburg, Brittany Smith, Frank Petrie, and Warren Sklar continues with more about Bob’s new book, GarageBand For Dummies, Second Edition. That part of the discussion includes comparisons of GarageBand and Logic Pro, who each is for, and learning curves. Then, the panel just couldn’t stay away from the Apple/Epic Games battle, but this time we approached it through the copycat version of Apple’s “1984” commercial and director Ridley Scott’s comments about it.
