I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that GarageBand might not be the most popular recording software here - but I use it cuz its free with Macs, and it gets the job done and more. Its actually decently powerful if you have the right plugins and know what your doing. Sometimes. But I just downlaoded the AU version of the Fish Fillets freeware package from DigitalFishPhones. These are supposed to be pretty good for freeware - a compresser, a de-esser, and a gater/expander. But I follwed the instructions (both in the manual, and the same instructions everything tells you how to install an AU plugin) - I put the component file in Library>Audo>Plug-Ins>Components. Garageband supports AU plugins - I have a few in there already. But Goddammit, the fish fillets don't show up in garageband. anybody know what could be wrong? I don't think its the plugin, since its supposed to be pretty quality, and the website cerrtainly gives a very "clean" impression, like the guys have dont all the work for you and all you have to is drag, drop, click, and go (i love that feeling, thats why im a Mac user...^#$% doing it yourself with software, no thanks ) so like I said, what could be wrongg???
