oh and to answer your question. garage band is mac only. so the only way you can run it is if you run OSX on windows which is possible, but its a bitch to do. trust me its not worth it.

short answer is no.

what are you wanting to do? if youre wanting to say trigger lights/synths with your guitar, its pretty much impossible(with hardware, technically any software that could do it would probably convert the audio after it was send which technically wouldnt answer your question)

if you honestly wanna send midi using a typically non midi instrument the only way is to buy a MIDI guitar/bass

Garageband is extremely limited . You want something else . I'm more impressed with Fruity Loops , which isn't perfect either .

i've been looking all over to find an answer to this question, and have yet to find one.

How does one go about getting an acapella from the original track?

for remixing sampling etc...

Nah, Abletons samples are actually pretty awesome.
What version of live are you using? You just need to tweak some of the controls.

I used a hacked version of Windows XP called Tiny XP2. It runs extremely light and is much better than the original. It also comes with soundforge, photoshop cs 2, and other programs. You can do anything now on a mac you can on a PC (but not the other way around!)its just a matter of learning the differences between the programs. Macs were tradiqtionally used for graphics and music because they were the only comps that could historically. Now everything works on both systems, and PCs are much cheaper, you can upgrade more easily, plus they are more practicial for everyday use. I have no problems with macs, but I do think its funny that a lot of mac users who barely know anything about unix or its capabilities swear by it, and really are just bound to it by their own lack of computer knowledge. Its good to know both, so pay what you like, right?

For all my production, I use an old gateway laptop with 1.6 Ghz centrino with 512MB RAM (thatsss right!!!!) and it works well enough. Of course its not gonna run as fast or as smooth as a brand new PC or MAC but I got it for free and dont have the pay the $2000 or $4000 (mac price for equiv)

macs are more practical for everyday use tbh, i want a computer i can turn on and check my email or whatever, in the time it takes me to do that all on my mac, my 2000 dollar pc is like just getting done with all the logon script

linux is the future my friends, once everything is compatible mac os and windows will be linux's bitch

you probably have a whole bunch of unnecessary services running, you can optimize it for start up.

Yup thats a rad laptop by almost anybodies standards... im quite jealous in fact. enjoy yo.

IMHO... if your laptop comes with Vista... partition that thing and install XP on it. heres a nice guide for ya:
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/install-windows-xp-on-your-pre-installed-windows-vista-computer/

Personally i would delete the Vista partion after i install XP.

On another tip....
Im wondering if anybody else here has Stillwell's Olga VST?
http://www.stillwellaudio.com/?page_id=37

Ive been using it for a while and this thing is so wierd but pretty fun. All the controls are in Russian haha.

But the interesting thing about it is that its got a randomising kinda drive that gives it hand-made synth like discrepencies.

Any thoughts? maybe.
