gbRemote for GarageBand

By Harmony Systems, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Use your iPhone or iPod touch to control GarageBand '11 on your Mac! ** gbRemote is NOT compatible with the October 2013 version of OSX GarageBand, nor does it work with iOS GarageBand. YOU MUST HAVE A MAC COMPUTER. **

With gbRemote, control record and playback from anywhere in your studio. Adjust or mute volume, select a track, toggle mute and solo for each track, and more. The names of all the tracks in your GarageBand song are shown in a scrolling track list and color coded by type for easy reference. Untether yourself from the computer mouse and screen!

gbRemote 2.0 includes significant new features to improve your controller experience: a real time bar beat display; change the playhead position; tempo displayed; change tempo; set start and end points for the cycle; and adjust (current) track volume. Track mute and solo now exist on the main screen, and layouts are optimized for 3.5" and 4" devices.

gbRemote has 2 theme styles that you can change anytime in the iPhone Settings app. Choose Minimal (black) or Silver. gbRemote also automatically adjusts its layout for landscape vs. portrait mode. Easily access controls using only one hand in Portrait mode.

gbRemote communicates with GarageBand using our gbLink application, a small user agent program that is installed on your Mac. YOU MUST HAVE GBLINK 3.1.2 INSTALLED AND RUNNING ON YOUR MAC COMPUTER AND WI-FI FOR GBREMOTE 2.0 TO WORK. gbLink is free and available on the gbRemote product page at Follow these one time steps to start using gbRemote:
* Using your Mac, go to the gbRemote page in the Delora Products tab on our website, to download gbLink. (It does not install on or from the iPad.)
* After downloading, double click on the gbLink ZIP file, then double click on the gbLink.pkg file. OSX will walk you through the installation screens.
* Go to the Mac System Preferences, click on the gbLink icon, then press the 'Run' button. Close System Preferences.
* Make sure iPhone/iPod touch Wi-Fi is ON and connected to the Mac where gbLink is installed, and GarageBand is running. gbRemote is now ready for use.
