    Let's keep all GarageBand site announcements in this thread so we don't get multiple threads on it.

    Well, I would've listed yours, too...but you already did. ;)

    Anyhow, I figure at this point, we're all pretty much at the same level (actually, I'm probably at a bit of a disadvantage, but that's not deterring me). :D I just thought in the interest of full disclosure, I'd list all the ones I knew about. Time will tell which ones will stick around and which ones will fade into memory. I just hope GBX falls into the former category. :D

    Hi, we are pretty much at the same level but you and I have the least users, unfortunately (maybe in the future we could work something out like a merge or something since we both pretty much have the same concept). At this point AppleGarage is the leader. What I was curious about were the referrals that you thanked Macrumors for. What were you refering to?

    AppleGarage.com

    www.applegarage.com

    AppleGarage.com has been up since January 7th. We are offering:

    - Forums for members to talk about GarageBand techniques, post tutorials, help other users, post what they are doing music wise, and just in general talk about the think we all love, music.
    - Download section will be put in place for people to be able to download and upload loops for use in GarageBand. These will all be open source, no copyrighted loops, etc.
    - Music Gallery will be the coolest part of the site. This is going to be a place where members can upload their GarageBand made songs for all other users to rate and listen to. It'll be nice to see what other people are doing around the music community.
    - Application news will be about GarageBand, rumors about new versions, etc.

    The download section is scheduled to be put onto the site on January 16th, 2004 on the day that GarageBand is released. I have not added it yet because I do not want it filling up with useless non-GarageBand related items. Watch for both the Gallery section and the Loops Download section on that day (and watch for GarageBand also!!)

    Thanks to Capt for posting our link on here too!! I appreciate it!

    This is the kind of thing that makes me glad that I spent billions of dollars switching to a mac. Even though I won't get my copy until tomorrow (fedex's fault), I commend you for your contribution to our society.

    Either that was heavy sarcasm, or, well, thank you :D

    Ha, no this isn't sarcasm. I recently switched, and I've noticed the mac following is nearly (if not completely) at cult status. I like how people are so willing to:
    1) Help other users with problems
    2) Come up with new, creative ways to do things
    3) and just plain take pride in their macs

    www.garagebandplanet.com is now dead! - we had to change our name...

    but from it's ashes comes www.macidol.com

    Off topic?

    I think it would be really cool if all the different sites were to come up with and agree on :) a universal (standard) tagging scheme for songs. That way the music could also be distributed over the p2p networks, with the authors permission of course.

    I'm thinking something like...

    gb.songname.mp4

    or GarageBand in the grouping field, with a link page in the comments field.

    Somehow including each webpage's song ratings in the actual itunes rating system wouldn't hurt either.
