In The Wanting
So you want a review of this platform called GarageBand. I have supported Apple since the time of conception, when the ideas were just beginning to hit the market, and computers did become rocket science. I fell into line with the MAC, and when iOS was conceived I was thrilled to be part of the journey. Then I came upon GarageBand and loved the quality of a simplistic platform with high quality instruments and effects. Now time has moved on once again but this time I see a difference in the attention given to this recording software. Do you not consider this platform viable any longer? I have recorded many hours of music on GarageBand and never thought about moving to another software. Today you have your pick of daw's on the market, but there is only one GarageBand. There are inconsistencies that can be dealt with (such as optimizing problems) and new more up to date avenues to explore. If it didn't mean anything to me, I would stay silent. It does mean a lot to me and the time I have invested in this platform to perfect it. Please; this platform can still be the rocket I used to thrive about, do not abandon it, in its conception it was genius.
Dope !!! .......But
Really dope and easy to use app. I'm a Rapper/Producer and my biggest singles to date, are GarageBand Produced !!!! I still record with Pro Tools 12 but as far as Production goes...?? GB all the way , it's EXCEPTIONAL !!!! .........But PLEASE give us more Apple Loops ASAP !!!! I've literally used ALL the good ones I Promise 😂😂 PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE !!!!!! Give us MORE Apple Loops. As many as you can !!!! But good work guys and thanks for your contribution to my career. Oh yea , to be specific ,add more bass lines/Loops and give us different hi hats ,kick drums(808 etc.), more Hip Hop style Snare/Claps,more FX , and some synth loops longer than 2 bars PLEASE !!!! And I'll FOREVER be a GarageBand User !!!! But FL Studios has Sooooo many diff hi hats drums etc. and make it where u mix the tracks below instead of on the side and more extensive when it comes to mixing !!!! And in case y'all were unaware, more (Hip Hop) Producers/Artists use this app than Dub Step or whatever EDM infused style 75% of your Loops and drums are !!!!
AMAZING!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!
I love this app! I can compose some of my favorite songs, and create some of my own! I only wish that there were some more, "orchestral" instruments. I understand that the others section has been added in keyboard, but, I'm hoping for an 'orchestral' set in percussion/drums. For example, a better, more nice sounding snare drum, a better cymbal, triangle, and others. On keyboard, in the others section, I'm hoping for saxophone, timpani, and other orchestral instruments. Another thing that I think would be super nice would be opera voices. I understand that there's the sampler instrument, but, I wish that there were realistic, pre-recorded, special opera "oohs", "ahhs", "eees", and other opera voice sounds. I hope that these features would come to GarageBand.
