Soundtrack has loops, can be used to record/mix etc. and includes effects...
I knew Soundtrack was going to be a misleading application. I'm starting to think that is why GarageBand is here. If you thought, or think Soundtrack is going to be something similar to the GarageBand demo from the keynote your way off. SoundTrack is not a very good content creation application for anything other than scoring, or otherwise adding some backing sound to your iMovie, or FCP projects.
I tried to use it to make a song for a friend of mine, and quickly realized that I would be needing Logic to complete it. Now that GarageBand is here I should be able to finish a few other more complexed projects I was starting at that time.
I took Soundtrack to just about it's limits trying to make something that it was not intended to do.
If you want to hear a quickie somewhat heavy Techno-ish song made from Soundtrack It's on my iDisc with a JPEG of a EQ setting. Use the EQ setting in iTunes.
I'll let you know right now. I was not all that happy with the results, and the mixing features, or lack there of.
