Borklog: One entry

24 January 2005

I just made the pilgramage to my local independent mac retailer and picked up the latest iLife and iWonk. Pages is pretty cool. More like MS Publisher than MS Word, but I think it'll be perfect for making the Spousal Overunit's charts. The new Garage Band is pretty cool, as is the new "Orchestral Instruments" add-on pack. Some of them are pretty amazing (here's a sample from a demo file) The pizzacato strings sounds dead-on, as do the bassoons. The clarinet is a bit weak, and the English Horn is horrible. Luckily it's easy to tweak things so folks won't notice.
