Description

GarageBand turns your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch into a collection of Touch Instruments and a full-featured recording studio — so you can make music anywhere you go. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play a piano, organ, guitar and drums. They sound and play like their counterparts, but let you do things you could never do on a real instrument. Enjoy Smart Instruments that make you sound like a pro — even if you’ve never played a note before. Plug an electric guitar into your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch and play through classic amps and stompbox effects.* Use a Touch Instrument, a built-in microphone or a guitar, and instantly record a performance. GarageBand now takes song creation to the next level with support for up to 32 tracks.** Get even more sounds for GarageBand with a one-time in-app purchase, or record popular third-party music apps using Inter-App Audio in iOS 7. And share your song using email, Facebook, YouTube, SoundCloud or AirDrop for iOS.

Customer Reviews

My 8th Review

As you can see from my reviews I really like pushing you awesome developers! Garageband is the best, and most often used app on my phone. And you've added quite a lot of features that I've suggested in the past, so I am very thankful and graciously been using them to their full extent!

My Suggestions
1. Hoping for a waveform option, to configure bass/mid/treble on a track.
2. There are great instruments to create our own beats starting from scratch, but would love to see better loopbacks than the ones that have been there since the beginning.

Otherwise, this app is still my favorite. Thank you for your efforts!

Great

Good app. Could have more instruments.

6 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️March 2014 comment: please bring back the input level slider. And allow it to be an input in Audiobus.⭐️

But nevertheless,

ONE OF THE BEST REASONS TO OWN AN iPAD!!! 😍

This is perhaps one of the most amusing and amazing app for an iOS device. I have never had as much fun making music with any other computer, desktop, laptop or handheld device. Looking forward to the next version.

Thanks very much for such an awesome app. I am making some great tracks and it is helping support my efforts as a musician.

There are so many features, I think I will have to drop into the local Apple Store for a few lessons on some of "the little known features of GarageBand for iOS"

May I suggest some instruments like BANJO, ACCORDION.

Anyhow once again this app is a great tool, keep up the great work.
