Make sweet music with the ultimate home recording studio
When Apple announced GarageBand Steve Jobs said they liked to develop apps to give other developers a bar to reach for.
Admittedly we baulked at this seemingly arrogant turn of phrase given some of the cool stuff off on the App Store. That was until we downloaded the app for ourselves and came to the conclusion that it is probably one of the best apps ever made.
For those who’ve not used the Mac version, GarageBand is a basic music-making app that harbours extremely advanced features in a simplistic, easy-to-use interface.
This app offers the ability to record and arrange music tracks using very simple tools that can achieve what seems like impossible quality. Trigger fingerpicking patterns from popular chord patterns, host a jam session with your friends and even upload the results directly to social networks or your Soundcloud.
You don’t need to be a musician, you don’t even really need a musical ear. You just need to be inquisitive. Playing instruments is as simple as jabbing fingers at your iPad but actually arranging tunes takes a small learning curve. Make use of the Smart Instruments function to really fool people into thinking you’re a pro.
With up to 32 tracks supported on iDevices with the A7 chip (16 prior to that), the possibilities for music creation are seemingly endless. Now with the opportunity to try out GarageBand before fully committing to buy, it really is the ultimate musical showcase.
Easy to use, instantly satisfying and undoubtedly one of the slickest apps ever created.
