    Less then a day away, and last minute notes...

    "GarageBand" will be announced tomorrow.
    Xserve updates tomorrow, as well.
    This Mini iPod information is still considered reliable.

    really? What GARAGEBAND would do??

    A consumer audio app that would allow indies to record, edit and promote their song on iTMS?

    BTW, besides Japan, any other rumor regarding iTMS Canada, Europe, Australia?

    Its probably the consumer music app... I hope it has some decent plugins,features,instruments,etc.

    (edit:arn where did you guys get that from? How is it confirmed?)
    (Probably a dumb question....:()

    I reckon that GarageBand will be the new Audio iApp with Midi or something like that, damn i wish that apple could realease something for Dj's or something that would improve on what Traktor has.
    Well only time will tell????

    sounds like software for ripping and uploading AAC files to the iTunes music store for sale and distribution. Wasn't there talk about Apple releasing software for indie labels and independent artists which would enable them to encode their music and provide Apple with all that is necessary to distribute their music. Hmmm.....

    Re: GarageBand, Mini iPods, Xserve... Tomorrow?

    Since "will be" is in bold, I assume that means MacRumors has received definite confirmation of GarageBand--cool!!

    I wonder if "Garage Band" is like an eLogic Express similar to Final Cut Express.

    An app that would do for music what iMovie does for DV or iDVD does for DVD creation would be killer .

    And look for Steve to brag about Big Mac, then pause, and announce the G5 xServe. :)

    I'm hoping that GarageBand is an iApp that is like a cross between Soundtrack and Logic Platinum, but totally stripped down and easy to use and integrates with iLife.

    GB for pros too

    imagine if Beyonce and the like bypass their record labels and just sell in itunes...surely that would be a breach of some contracts but perhaps some would ditch their contracts if they could market themselves via iTMS. Possible? Any takers? As i understand it the labels take more than enough.

    I've been waiting for Xserve updates since WWDC last June. I will be buying 5 more xserves tomorrow for my school district if they really do get updated! If they upgrade the Xraid too, the teacher in charge of buying for the art dept has hundreds of thousands of dollars waiting to be spent of storage for our video lab....

    That would be cool...and could be likely.

    Seems like a waste of a post space to me. Unless someone knows what Garage Band is doesn't sound like something generally needed by all Mac users. Might be something fun to play with or a 'consumer' level sound mixer like that other new product they released.

    Wouldn't that make Apple a record label?

    uhh, if it's a consumer app, it won't be loaded with plugins, features, and instruments.

    My guess is it's something like soundtrack but without the pro-ish features. Probably with a much smaller sample library (maybe you could buy new ones through the iTMS???) And a limited number of tracks. Some integration with .Mac. And some integration with iMovie, iDVD, and iPhoto.
