About GarageBand

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 to instantly record a performance, with support for up to 32 tracks. Use the Sound Library to download additional free instruments, loops, and sound packs created by some of the biggest producers in the world. And then share your song with friends and family.

What users say about GarageBand

Why’s it crash so much?

It also has very generic sounding and crappy off tune loops with very limited selection




Worth it

It’s a good app to put custom music for your ringtone but it’s confusing but it’s worth it




I like it😀

There's a lot to do and it's a fun game to play when you're bored. So I like it. and some of your songs are really good and some of them aren't you can get better.

Really good

Most of my recorded music and often been using them to make ringtones but it bothers me that it only exceeds to only 30 seconds other than that I enjoy using this app




Covert Drummer to MIDI Tad

Loving GarageBand on IOS 17 so far, saw videos where converting the Drummer to MIDI was just copy and paste on the desktop version but not the same on iPad/iPhone. Wish there was a added tab when you double tap the Drummer track that can automatically covert it into midi.

Great app as a beginner producer!!

I LOVE garage band. I had 43 hours on it last week if that tells you anything. I do have some feedback that would greatly improve the app in my eyes: 1: Make automation more flexible so we can change effects instead of just being limited to volume. 2: Add more instruments or maybe a way for the community to share their instruments. 3: Make different song sections be able to have different keys and tempos. 4: Make the interface easier. To add a new section, I shouldn't have to go in, place a note, exit the instrument, then resize it to fit my needs. Props to apple for making this amazing experience. I hope these suggestions are shared among other community members.

IOS 17

I relied on Garageband for mini projects and other things because it’s free and was the best thing for me to use until I actually have money. But, no, apparently now you need IOS 17. I have an iPhone 8. Not everyone can buy a new phone at will.





If your a musician and you don’t have this app… GET IT! It’s amazing! I’ve always had musical talent, but the problem is I never knew what to do with that talent. I love writing songs, my trouble is getting started with one. Usually I could compose about 1 song a year, but that’s most definitely not the case now. I wrote 3 songs in one night! YEAH 3! i couldn’t believe it! Garage band gives multiple choices for instruments, and then if your still stuck they give you a little boost. Say you came up with a melody, but can’t complete it they give you some hints and ideas on completing your song. I mean, it’s the absolutely the best music app there ever was. So to the creators: thanks SO much for making this app… it’s literally changed my life!
