Mediocre

Every new update turns Garageband into more useless pile of spaghetti. Don’t update. It looks like without Jobs Apple is turning into Microsoft. Mediocre.

Pretty good with good sounding rhythym, great for all ages and usage. I liked it especially because I don’t even have to be able to play an instrument to have an instrumental to my original songs. Great app!

Not as good on Mac

GarageBand is a great app on iPad, but it is harder to use on Macs.

Awesome, however...

Its great, however, (i'm 14) I have Logic Pro x, and when it comes to making music wether it's singing, raping, producing, or mixing & mastering, Logic Pro X is all around better. I always have beats in mind and honestly garage band is mostly meant for people new to producing. Logic Pro X is a quality music producign app, but for a free app, I have to admit... Garage Band is pretty awesome! I love all of the loops and things, but i mostly use it to jot down quick beats that i have in mind on my ipad( I use Logic Pro X on my iMac). I have to give it to yall though, for a free app, Garage Band is pretty nice!

Great and all, but...

I love garageband, been using it for years to make music. Recently, since I updated to Catalina, i'm having some issues. When I record a song and change the sound of the voice, the smart controls freeze up and I have to restart garageband for it to work again.

Vocals

1
The old version was a lot better and easier to use. I can No Longer record My Vocals. *Male Basic* or *Vocal Reflection* etc. is No Longer and option. Its recording All of my vocals in Instrument Setting......WHY. I select Audio (Mic) but its still recording in GREEN for Instruments. The Help Section Doesn't Help. Where did the Basic Vocal Selections go???? I unistalled and Reinstalled 2 times Already. I still have the same problem even with changing the inputs and settings.
