"My sons love it."

November 19, 2014  |  By mikepopper

 |  Version: Apple GarageBand 10.0.3

Pros

The ease of use is stunning. I'm no musician, but with the help of my kids I managed to create a song!

Cons

Some functions are definitely only for experts.

Summary

Yes, I've got a couple of sons both guitar players - and they love it. Curious, I tried it myself and as a professional I strongly recommend it.

"Fun and friendly music recording software"

November 28, 2011  |  By ohappydey

 |  Version: Apple GarageBand 6.0.4

Pros

Fun and easy to use, has a clean interface that's easy to navigate, has a good variety of instruments and loops that are customizable.

Cons

Can be laggy when used with a midi device.

Summary

This latest version of Garageband is a great upgrade to the earlier version. This has more virtual instruments, better AutoTune and more options than ever before. I like that the app has video lessons available through the App store, as well. The interface is really easy to use. My only gripe is that the app can be a bit slow when used with a midi device or uploading a number of sounds at once. Not too much of a big deal, though.

"I'm going in circles..."

June 03, 2011  |  By stevencee

 |  Version: Apple GarageBand 6.0.2

Pros

I might be able to mention some, if I could actually install the update....

Cons

Software update says I'm up-to-date, when I download it from the CNET site & try to install it, it tells me I must have at least GB 6 already installed. Well, I have 6.0.1 installed, so now what? Don't know where to go from here...

"I must have overdosed on Stupidity Pills"

April 02, 2011  |  By Ras-x

 |  Version: Apple GarageBand 6.0.2

Pros

So far none!

Cons

Well, I checked my version - 6.01. Can't get a download of 6.02

Summary

As I said, i must have overdosed on stupidity pills. Running 6.01 on both iMac and Macbook pro. tried downloading, and it shunted me onto Software update. it came back and said i was up to date. Checked, still on 6.01. Forced it to download, opened the package and it said - no, check the the App Store. Opened up the Store, there is 6.02 advertised, but it tells me it is already installed. checked "About Garageband", and it says I have 6.01 installed. Ok, I give in, just going around in circles - on both machines!!!

"My savior for quick and quality production!!!"

April 01, 2010  |  By jminutes2010

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

1. user interface is beautiful and easy to use....

2. does not buffer as much as other DAW's

3. sound quality is top notch when the enviorment matches it ( soundproofing)

4. Tracks come and go flawlessly straight to my Ipod!!!!

5.FREe

Cons

1. WISH IT WASN'T SO PROMOTED AS A COOKIE CUTTER DAW LIKE FL STUDIO......
IF YOU HAVE TRICKS AS A PRODUCER, YOU KNOW IT HAS MANY AMAZING ASPECTS!!!!

Summary

I have been a user since 06..... I have wowed many people from its production level outdoing quality in top PC DAWS for awhile!!!!!!!!!!

Worth it .... it's because of APPLE'S production standpoint in music, and video that they surpass it all overall!!!!!
