Not a week on Orkut and I've already found a very useful tip on the GarageBand forum: how to import prerecorded MIDI into the app, a feat I had previously thought not possible.

This technique will make it a lot easier to get my existing songs into GarageBand. Before, I had to open them in a notation program, carefully position the windows so that I could see both that program and GarageBand, and play the song to a metronome beat on my attached MIDI keyboard, one track at a time. I still don't think I can export MIDI, but importing it is a great help.

Now, if I could just figure out why my audio out vanishes nearly every time my Mac goes to sleep, I'd be a happy camper.
