This app is where I got my start ;)
You can export some fairly high quality sounding tracks in GarageBand, especially if know what you’re doing. But there are few things this app lacks: 1. A BETTER EQ 2. A HORN PACK (Trumpet, Trombone, Sax, etc…) 3. A MORE USER FRIENDLY INTERFACE EQ: GarageBand is in DESPERATE need of a few more EQ frequently points. What’s the point of using these great samples if you can’t mix them? Something like Fab Filter’s EQ would really take this app to the next level. MORE REALISTIC SAMPLES The bass, drums, and strings can sound pretty wonderful - if used right. But it basically stops there. Please give us some realistic samples including A FEW HORN SAMPLES! INTERFACE The interface can be quite frustrating at times. The rewind button is WAY too close to the play button. Many times I’ve wanted to listen to specific moment, but then then I’m accidentally sent right back to the beginning of the song. The app also suffers from a few bugs that can be pretty unforgiving. Tracks and certain notes that will suddenly not play for no reason. But this really the least of GarageBand’s problems. I could go on. But that’s all the time I have. Thanks!
Awesome! Me and my sister love making silly crapped up weird funny songs! It’s so fun to make cool beats, Lyrics, Lots more
It needs setting where you can hum and turn the hum into any instrument, for the people who can’t play anything
I use this app to make plenty of music with but I usually just use loops. I think there should be more metal/rock loops. I’m a very big fan of heaver music that would be cool. I do recommend this app if you’re a beginner it’s a 11/10 for me!
I deleted all my storage for it to say “unable to install” please fix this
I can’t download it bc i don’t have “iOS 15”
I can’t seem to import recent mp3 files. All my newer MP3 seemed not to work. They’re greyed out and can’t be imported. Please fix.
It’s hard to import audio files for some reason and it’s very irritating . So please downgrade GarageBand and allow all audio file types and also maybe allow extracting audio from videos
