Steve Jobs wasn't about to take Pro Tools lying down. In 2002, Apple acquired German company Emagic. They also lured its prodigal engineer Gerhard Lengeling and his innovative Logic software, which basically allowed home-computer users access to studio-level features. Concurrently, Lengeling cooked up GarageBand, which refined Logic's foundation even further so that the amateur enthusiast or cash-strapped DIY musician could become expert overnight in digital recording and mastering. Jobs demonstrated GarageBand at the 2004 Macworld Expo, and a decade on, in conjunction with standard-bearers like Pro Tools and Logic, it continues to embolden previously tech-averse artists.
