Overall amazing app

This is the best mobile app to make music on the go. Hands down. With the latest additions, its become so rich, its my go to to when developing that melody in my head while im not in front of a computer. However, its not perfect. Yesterday, I lost an entire track because of an unintended consequence of the save feature. As you know, GB will save your progress when you exit the app. Theres no difference between exiting the app and locking your scree, since all the saving logic seems to occur during the onPause() method, regardless of what’s making it pause. I guess this unintended feature would also happen when switching apps but i havent tested that one. Anyway, saving during onPause is the best thing to do, but it has the very important consequence of wiping out your history along with it. So, if you made some destructive changes that you you are not sure are going to stay, or deleted something unintentionally but selecting the track instead of the region, and realize you have to do something else in the real world, i had to get off the subway, you lock your screen and boom! History, and your ability to undo and go back, are all gone! For me who mainly uses GB on the go, this is a great deal. I’m pretty sure you guys can be selective about when you clear the history. Can you please fix?

I want to use wind instruments, but they’re not there!

I’m a beginner music maker, and I’ve been playing in a school band for a lot of my life, so I grew up loving wind instruments like flute, trumpets, etc. but as of July 10, 2019, there doesn’t seem to be an option to get them. I searched for extensions to add to GarageBand so that I may use the more traditional instruments, but I couldn’t find anything. All I have is the computerized digital percussion, some strings I don’t know how to use (yet), and a piano which I’m unable to really use because on my phone screen, the accents and attacks on the instrument are very spontaneous and annoying. It’s a good app, don’t get me wrong, but no matter where I look, I can’t find any instruments I know what to do with in a composition (i.e. wind instruments). There also doesn’t seem to really be a good way of making music box music in it no matter how hard I try (I try using the Sweet Bells on the piano setting, but even after messing with the sound settings it still doesn’t feel right). The reason I point these things out is because I want to create more traditional or fantasy-based music. It would be nice to be able to create some ethereal music without struggling to find the instruments. Other than that, the app is wonderful and intuitive. I intend to keep using it, just so long as I have access to wind instruments and hopefully a music box-like instrument. Thank you for your time!

Needs to be solved

So I have been using this app since the iPhone 5s. And I have a major complaint it is a major book for those who are using voiceover with GarageBand. It’s a book Apple needs to take care of. I am a voiceover user myself and I have been having this issue. Whenever you would like to add compression, change your EQ, add reverb, or echo, or any really cool affect like reversing the track, changing the speed so if you were trying to make those rap style high hats, or adding other great effects. Garage band will not let you, as soon as you close out of your mixer it erases all of the things you’ve done. Matter of fact it doesn’t even add DFX it’s like you never even added them. I have been dealing with this bug, since I started using this app I have never been able to successfully add any of those amazing plug-ins garage band will not even change the sound of your recording, as soon as you go and increase or decrease the amount of compression reverb or like I said any of the other affects, and you close out of the mixer and prepped play to hear your track it doesn’t add them, then you go back to your mixer and look at it and see they’re all back down to 0% Apple please please fix this issue, recordings with sound so much better when you can actually affect the sound. This bug has been going on long enough. On behalf of me and other voiceover users a like please fix this issue
