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.

Garage band yeah
Camp forever

Love GarageBand I just really wish that I could record more songs it’s only letting me record one song and if I’m trying to record another one it has the same beat but you can just add on and I don’t really like that I just want to make it like just from scratch and if you can’t please tell me how by the way I’m 88-year-old person so I do not have any other contacts so please just write it all down here thank you either way I love this so much I played every day 🎸


Being watched?!

So in general I love garage band. I don’t have any problem with the music. But a week ago I was recording a song and the instrument got renamed to “Nice Room” I was in my room. I didn’t even know that you could change the name of the track.


Inconsistent
Judah KR

Unfortunately like almost all things Apple, anything you do can be erased for no reason and sent into oblivion. The applications appear solid but the depth and structuring to an actual art form lacks in the ability to move away from being another GB clone. This is a great tool to set ideas down but lacks allowing the user/composer complete control in originality.

IVE MADE HITS USING GARAGE BAND
MANMAN2fliiii

I am a upcoming rapper & I love this app over the last years GB has allowed me to become my own musician and producer I literally have made many of hit songs with this App.


no saxophone
elgan65536

add saxophones and i will give 5 stars


Suggestion
KeviNator Gamer

I love using this application for my music and for future music. What i suggest is more apple loops, and more instruments to play on like a saxophone, or more bass guitars. Also for vocals, you should add more effects on the robot, like pitch equality, so that way a robot voice can be regular voice with robot vocal, ya know? Anyways, loving it anyways, from Soto :)


One thing
Liam Knapp

So I love this so much but it needs a launchpad I love them so if you can answer this please add this next time please

GarageBand no longer recognizes my audio interface after the iOS update. I toggled the new usb function in the setting and still nothing. Anybody else?
