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

The Greatest Application
Synester KL

What a great App to create the own music with the Basic knowledge. I like the idea of not only to turn the songs into ringtones but also create the own music and also can play and record the music. However, the app should be a little bit more user friendly to create the Music. Because some of my friends really like to edit the wave files but for them they don’t know how GarageBand works. But it’s a great application though.


Good app

It’s really good


Not crazy about the “Waiting” feature.
Frog Grigson

When I create a project on my iPad and open it on my iPhone, via iCloud, it says “Waiting”. Forever. Bad feature. Bad. Not good. I can write “Waiting” on an index card with a Sharpie if I want that functionality. Please consider redesigning iCloud sharing as a feature that shares projects between devices. It’s a crazy idea, but it just might work.


Bugs and issues
kcooper1201

I’ve had this app for a while, and I worked great, but the past couple days, the beat sequencer isn’t working. It’s skipping beats I put in every time I record, I would appreciate an update fixing this

The app is very great I got my first beat within 15 minutes and I have Never Used it! It’s really easy to learn! BUT I WISH WE COULD UPLOAD TO InstaGram if we could upload to SnapChat we should be able to upload onto InstaGram! That’s my only request! I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO DOWNLOAD THIS APP ITS ENTERTAINING AND ITS SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE YOU CAN!

Return Access For my Purchase
Bate aNd Switch

Return access option to the earlier GarageBand version. The access to an earlier version was offered before !!!!! . Access to my purchase is now vacant ... As the ,"Download an earlier Version" Button not appearing ! Really ? What "genius" came up with this. Poor programming skills reflected in this "over site"... So many other "apps" defer to an earlier version continue to > (Offer access to the version purchased - true support) <
