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 !!!!


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.

Music Creations right in the pocket!

As a songwriter/musician it's always a hassle to find time just to create some new creations. This app has brought new levels of easy going and quick projects that can be made in minutes! I love garage band on desktop but with the phone edition it has really helped me create quick easy beats or instrumentals along the way. I feel like the phone edition is more of a brainstorming type of app. I don't recommend depending on the app for larger piece projects. I highly recommend trying the desktop version and then add on the phone application. This app is great to use anywhere and quickly to function for solo projects or collaborating with others as you brainstorm along.
