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. And with Live Loops, it makes it easy for anyone to have fun creating music like a DJ, by triggering loops and audio effects in real time. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play keyboards, guitars, and drums. Enjoy Smart Instruments that make you sound like a pro — even if you’ve never played a note before.

Customer Reviews

Pretty Good

This app is pretty good. I don't like how restricted you are though. One thing that that can change is the delay on the Strings and blow instruments, even if it makes the app more realistic, in my opinion, it just makes the app worse, especially sense the only way to play decently fast on the Strings is to use Staccato/Pizzacato, and on the Flute, you haft to go really high and most of the time, it just takes away from the piece/song. Another thing that should be fixed is the fact that you basically haft to be a professional Violinist to get good Vibrato on the strings, I HATE that. There are also other things as well but other than that, this app is pretty good. Stuff that's good is the Piano, Glockenspiel, all drum sets. Another thing that isn't good is I have a LOT of trouble getting a Tambourine sound without any other percussion instruments but there are many things that are good and for me, the good out way the bad so, pretty good :)

Daisy's New app updates idea

I have an idea for this app, you should try to add a new feature, called a Music vocal generator, I know it doesn't exist, but it will exist on this app, here's how it works: first you pick five or more instruments that is shown in front of you, then you use your singing voice or vocals to the microphone any type of pitch, tone, etc, then it'll generate from the Instruments you chosen to match the tone and pitch, etc. of your voice and it creates a whole song, also it extends any minute or second of the recording of your voice, there's one little detail that you need to know, The entire song the generator makes with the chosen instruments, is completely random, not even I know how to play the way it does, LOL, well that's my idea, hope you like it 😊

Solid Package (Update: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, ADD MIDI IN AND MIDI OUT OPTIONS)

Incredibly powerful music app. Only shortcomings are the limited numbers of sounds on the smart instruments and the occasional optimizations the software makes to the songs, which can take up to ten seconds for changing things like keys. Overall, this app has helped me start off my official music career after being a guitarist for ten years!

Edit: Although it has help me write a lot of great stuff, I can't help but feel this app is not at it's full potential due to lack of midi in and out support. Sure, you can hook up a keyboard, but you can't, for example, send the midi data from the wonderful chord strips to something like Korg Gadget (which takes in midi data.) If the app were cared for more, instead of being abandoned for months and months, it could really be a top killer among the iOS music production community.
