Description

GarageBand turns your iPad, and iPhone 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. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play keyboards, guitars, and create beats that make you sound like a pro — even if you’ve never played a note before. Plug in a guitar or bass and play through classic amps and stompbox effects. Use a Touch Instrument, microphone, or a guitar and instantly record a performance with support for up of 32 tracks. Use the new Sound Library to download additional free instruments, loops and sound packs.

Customer Reviews

Please read.

So i love this app and have been able to make some pretty great things with it but my only complaint (and this is a big one) is that all of the sounds are in the same category for the most part. They all sound generally like stuff you would use in techno music. It is very difficult to make a hard trap type beat with all of these up beat sounds. It makes it sound very immature and corny. Dont think its my fault because i use fl studio on my computer all the time and the amount of sounds you can buy/generate is awesome. There is always a way to get the specific sound you want but with garage band it feels like you are extremely confined. For example there isnt even 1 bass sound that is remotely close to sub bass. Its all super tight and there isnt any deep, good sounding bass. No matter how much you mix it you just cant get a good sound. I would like to see more dark, trap like sound packs in the future because i feel it would turn this app around. It would change the fact that people in the industry look down upon it and would please a huge fan base you probably didnt even know you had. Make the sounds more customizable and make purchasable sound packs that fit certain styles of music and just expand your reach out of just classic rock and techno. Create a platform that will please everyone instead of keeping it so conservative and limited. Thanks a lot and i hope to see change in the future.

Didn’t get it yet

I don’t have this right now but know it’s a great app cause my whole family has it my little sister loves it and I love her 😍 but don’t have this great app it makes her quiet when she cries and when I take the phone from her she starts whining and she’s one! I don’t even know if she know what she is doing but she looks like she does so I hope 🤞 she be careful with my phone when I give it to her and it’s been a long time and yet this app is still loading so I think it needs to be fixed soon because I just got this phone and this is he only app that’s done thisa

Too glitchy/ buggy

I enjoy this big update, having access to more instruments is very useful. However the new menu is very disappointing. I already found many bugs just on the startup, and even the instruments are now buggier.

Also, I think it’d be cool to have stereo panning automations and either a more complicated EQ, or a limiter

And about the “optimizing performance…” as the songs get lengthier and more massive, it can take up to 60 seconds (or at least in my experience). Is this completely necessary? Sometimes it “optimizes” every time I press the redo button, and it wastes too much time.
