There's all kinds of controllers on the market. If garageband can take midi signals, which I think it can, you should have a lot of options!

novation or fucking pricey


i was checking this thing.. trigger finger or something, but it's more for just midi drum programming, would be cool to have everything in one package and cheap


also i don't think you can push play/stop/rec for garageband on those midi keyboards, they're cool though, those axioms, oxygens

and that korg pad thing

Trigger finger is cool like. The Korg MicroKontrol is pretty hot. It has things you can use as drum pads, though unlike the trigger finger it aint pressure sensitive.

That novation is EVERYTHING. It's got two Mic XLR inputs, midi in/out/thru, faders, knobs, pads, keys. It's even a hardware synth and has it's own sounds and effects. WOAH.
