Hello guys! I am taking a plunge into garage band. -quickly, what if any are the fundamental differences between garage band and final cut pro, besides of course the lack of video? -also, i want to import a bunch of mp3s, they get recoded, but there is a limit! "maximum number of real instrument tracks reached" --surprised! i have a feeling that there is a difference in how an audio program organizes the information. "locking... renders the track to the harddrive" --so are "normal" sound bits stored in the ram? thanks! r.
