DAW Audio Composition Project


I made a composition in Garageband, I did the guitar and bass myself, and programmed the drums.

Audio File Formats and Definitions

AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format): stores standard CD-quality audio; similar to WAV (Higher Quality)

WAV (Waveform Audio File Format): CD audio; can be saved with different sampling and bit rates; similar to AIFF (Higher Quality)

MP3 (Audio File): Used to store audiobooks and music on a hard drive; Close to CD-quality sound; the higher quality sound comes from higher bit rates which also take up more storage space

MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface): music data: notes played, when notes are played, how long each note is played, and the velocity of each note played; used to be able to exchange and use information between software and hardware programs; no actual audio data

All the audio file format information is found at: fileinfo.com

What I Learned & Problems I Solved

I learned a lot how to mix instruments on Garageband, as well as I had a problem with the headphones where it wouldn’t pan but I realized I wasn’t using the right headphones.
