I've just bought a Focusrite 18i20 audio/MIDI interface which came with Ableton Live 9 Lite which I find overwhelming, having no experience with DAW software from before. So I thought I'd start out with the more user-friendly Garageband 10 to get started. Having lots of "old school" gear (synths, drum machines, MIDI sequencer etc.) I want to record several tracks at once (i.e. 8 individual outputs from a drum machine, each to their separate audio track in Garageband so I can EQ and effect them individually), then record additional multiple tracks in the next go while keeping in sync with the existing recorded tracks. The Focusrite 18i20 has MIDI so I suppose MIDI sync is the way to go if Garageband supports it. Basically I want the Mac to act as a traditional multitrack tape recording studio with a mixer and effects, and have the ability to sync those tracks to a MIDI sequencer. Is this possible, or do I have to learn Ableton Live 9 Lite, or even buy some other DAW? It'll be running on a 13" i5 Macbook Pro with OSX 10.9.5.
