GarageBand

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 with support for up of 32 tracks*. Record performances from third-party music and effect apps directly into GarageBand using Inter-App Audio in iOS 8. And share your song using email, Facebook, YouTube, SoundCloud, or AirDrop for iOS.

Reviews

This app is extremely useful
The Golden Explorer

This app is A M A Z I N G. I almost never write a review on an app, even if it’s the best app I’ve seen, but this really deserves a gold medal! This app is so cool and useful for people who don’t know the first thing of music.


Loops from Mac
Saffy 239

Can you please add the Mac loops to the iOS loops?


WHERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS
Risko Live

No I’m instructions on how to even save during the sessions. Not able to move and pick instruments without activating random sounds. Random key changes. Leaving an hour of satisfied work lost.


Wonderful!

I was originally gonna rate this 4 stars, but you know what, it’s too good for that. I have absolutely no problems with it except for maybe it takes up a lot of my storage, and if I delete it, I rarely have enough storage to get it back without deleting a lot of stuff first. But that aside, this app is wonderful. My uncle uses it to write music, and me and my brother have a lot of fun with it, too. Great!


I like it,but...

I love this app!However there are no wind instruments,which may be a slight problem for those ho wish to play them.


It is cool but. . .
Tvinuyasha

I really like this app. It has so many instruments 🥁 🎹🎼🎤🎧🎻🪕🪘🎷🎸🪗🎺but because every instruments have different versions it is sometimes hard to find the one you want. Also sometimes you don’t get to even open the app. I don’t hear anyone els having this problem but I do and I can’t do anything about it. I am mad and it won’t let me delete it. Plz fix this!

I lace this app because I can simply record the song or soundtrack and set it as my ring tone or alarm.
