Some music words

Apple just released GarageBand, a package designed to flood the Internet with music made by arhythmic, tone-deaf computerists such as myself. In preparation for this, I have been trying to find out what I don’t know.Martin learned me some music words. Octave. After-touch. MIDI. Transpose. Loop. Sample. USB-MIDI interface. Gate. Reverb. Crotchet (and minim, etc.).

And with iChat’s audio/video facilities, I can torture my Mac-using friends without moving from the computer.

I’ve also bought a cheap-ass keyboard, so I’m all set. Just add talent…
