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 13 allow you to play, record and mix third-party instruments or effects directly in GarageBand. And then share your song with friends and family.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Don’t get me wrong. I like this app but ever since I downloaded and installed IOS 13, my GarageBand deleted all me new song that I’ve made. So I had to restart. Just when I thought it stopped, it deleted all my recent files again!!!!. I know this is a bug but please fix it. I can’t even get them back. One they are gone, they are gone forever!!!!! Why??????? I’m stressing from this. GarageBand is just wasting my time and efforts. Please fix this. I hope Apple sees this because after all the bug fixing updates, I still have this bug on my phone. Please help me. Can I at lease get an explanation for this? Please release an update that will fix this issue.
I was skeptical at first that one could even properly program drums and sequence beats on this software with it being mobile and all but, I must say that I am pleasantly surprised if not outright shocked at the quality of sound I can create as well as the complexity of music! If you’ve used a daw for any extended period of time then GarageBand will work like any other daw or better because grooves seem to write themselves and the intelligent design of the ware eliminates writers block! I can go on!!
Talent does not come included!
World Class Quality
GarageBand is literally the best music making software I’ve ever used! This has been rivaling my use of FL the last couple months. Recording quality (yes on your phone) is absolutely amazing! Stunning quality sound with so much freedom available to create your music I’d Absolutely recommend this to anyone, even if you’re not a professional musician/creative (well yet anyway😉)
