GarageBandfor iOS



Digital audio workspace

GarageBand provides touch instruments, effects, recording, and mixing for creating and saving songs. You can experiment with sounds and adjust settings to create the results you want. It’s like having a recording studio right on your phone.

Write some fresh tunes

GarageBand takes advantage of multi-touch gestures, so it’s easy and fun to make music.

Using a variety of instruments, including drums, keys, and strings, you can create your own tracks. These also come with effects, so you can produce a variety of sounds with thousands of possibilities for each song you record.

GarageBand empowers you to expand on the sound library with its extensive list of plug-ins. These are connected through the external menu that offers the option for Audio Unit extensions.

The most attractive feature of the app is how easy it is to use. The interface is intuitive, which makes playing instruments straightforward and fun to do. The composition process is simple. For those without a musical background, you can use the smart instruments that come with pre-recorded segments, so you can throw a track together with a few taps.

As a digital audio workspace, the capabilities are great. However, it isn’t a complete recording and editing program. If you are looking for a full range of professional tools, you might need FL Studio or a desktop program.

Where can you run this program?

This app requires iOS 13.0 and above.

Is there a better alternative?

No. For an on-the-go digital audio workspace, GarageBand will fulfill the needs of most casual users. More serious musicians should look into Cubasis or FL Studio Mobile.

Our take

GarageBand is great for those that want to create music. It’s also a fun way for less experienced composers to experiment with recording tracks. It offers versatility in an easy to use format, but can’t completely replace the more advanced technology available in Mac or PC programs or in studios.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you want to develop your interest in creating music, this is a great way to do so.
