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 to 32 tracks. Use the Sound Library to download additional free instruments, loops and sound packs. Audio Unit Extensions in iOS 14 allow you to play, record and mix third-party instruments or effects directly in GarageBand. And then share your song with friends and family.

Mkay so

I actually really like this app, but i'm having an issue right now with this app. i just made a song a few days ago and then it was kinda finished? I was proud of it until the app suddenly crashed. I went back to see what happened and the file is still there, but everytime when i try open it since that incident, i can't! It says that the song file can't be opened and i have to update to the latest garageband version. Which i am in right now! What's going on? There's not even an update.
