    I'm looking to dial in a decent Rhodes sound using the options available in Garage Band. I'm hoping to get close to the sound that George Duke had in some early Zappa recordings (Big Swifty, Eat That Question, etc.) Anyone got a good sound for me?
    Thanks!

    The thing is a Rhodes is like an electric guitar so to capture a specific sound you have to think how you would emulate it in that sense and then try and rebuild it with the elements available in garage band.
    Things to think about are what type of Rhodes (suitcase, stage etc..) what type of amplifier was used ( if any) preamp and effects.

    Eat that question sounds like a wurli 200 to me.

    If money is not a problem, my vote goes for Spectrasonics Keyscape. As far as I know, its possible to run the AU version in GarageBand?
