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. Audio Unit Extensions in iOS 11 allow you to play, record and mix third-party instruments or effects right into GarageBand. And then share your song with friends and family.

Apple Help

Ok Ive almost finished my song I was really hyped but then the app crashed, so I tried to delete it download it again and it didn't help neither restarting the iPhone can anyone help please, plus I didn't save the song into my iCloud so I have to restart it😤😤😤.

Amazing!

I really love this app because it seamlessly integrates with all of Apple’s other music apps (Voice Memos and GarageBand for Mac).

When I get an idea, I can record it in Voice Memos where I can then add bass/drums to hear what it could potentially sound like. I can then import it into GarageBand for iOS in which I could play around with some instruments, some drums and some random sounds. If I then wish to evolve it further, I can then open it up in GarageBand for Mac with so setup or transferring - thanks to iCloud being able to conveniently sync my projects automatically; in which I can progressively improve my music on the Mac edition.

THIS APP IS GREAT

EDIT: I just made a really good instrumental, but now its not working and its saying “not enough storage to edit” despite me having 2 GB of free storage. Please fix

PLEASE MAKE MORE HIP HOP/TRAP DRUM KITS. The Flex and Flow pack did not disappoint. Please make this app more suitable for hip hop just like FL Studio. I suggest making the high hats pop out more, because it sounds quite plain unlike in other plug ins. Please fix the fact that you cant copy paste drum patterns weve made from other songs into another song.
Update: THANK YOU FOR THE VINTAGE DRUM KITS! I cant thank this app enough! This app is amazing.
Update: Songs dont play in certain segments of the song please fix.
