Customer Reviews

Garageband was not able to install the new sounds.

Like many others, while attempting to download a lesson on my 2016 MacAir, I constantly receive the error “GarageBand was not able to install the new sounds. Close and re-open GarageBand to download and install them again.” I initially installed Garageband in February 2017 and had no issues. After reinstalling in March, It’s been a constant struggle. I installed on my 2012 MacPro, and receive the same error. Very frustrating.

Update- It looks like the Lesson Store was fixed. The lessons are now downloading without any issues. Kudos to the developers for fixing this issue. I lost so many hours of my life trying to find a solution. Just happy it’s working again. I’ll plug in my guitar at some point and if all goes well, probably revise to five stars.

issue

Let me start by saying that the app is great, but for some reason everytime i try to plug in a usb mic it starts acting up. The audio will begin to skip or even repeat certain parts of vocals that are recorded.. i’m just waiting for the next update, then maybe the issue will be resolved.

Lessons not downloading

v10.1.6, Yosamite
I have been able to create projects and there is some satisfaction. But now I want to check out the free lessons and the lessons will not download. Also, I am spending way too much time trying to figure out how to not get the last project to automatically load when I start the program.
