Editors' review

GarageBand offers a mobile version of Apple's powerful iWork music creation tool, with only a handful of drawbacks to what is otherwise a powerful, intuitive tool. More powerful than many beginner tools but not nearly as powerful as some of the most robust tools on the market, GarageBand is a perfect entry-level tool for someone interested in multi-track recording or digital composition on a mobile device.

GarageBand offers numerous options when first starting. From keyboards to drums, to sampling and a number of presets that make it easy to create fun effects without having to play with the controls too much, GarageBand has a lot to play with. It operates only in landscape mode and some tools are better on the Mac--especially the keyboard interface--but many options like the amplifier option, recording tools, and samplers are very well crafted and perfectly easy to use, even for those with no experience creating music. Multitrack recording is another very useful tool here, and despite the resources this app must demand, it ran smoothly in every test we developed for it, from an eight track recording to multiple voice inputs and three- to five-minute audio recordings being edited onscreen.

GarageBand is one of those rare apps that can be useful for almost anyone interested in recording. Whether you are interviewing someone for your podcast or are playing with Smart Drums while connected by Bluetooth to three other iPad or iPhone users, this app never ceases to amaze. This is one of Apple's better iWork apps for the iOS platform.

    "Best app for beginers & Ipad, very addictive"

    March 20, 2013   |   By Niksoni

    Version: GarageBand 1.3

    Pros

    A fully functional audio creating and editing program. You don't have to go out and spend tons of money on software or sound loops.
    With the amount of royalty free loops and samples that come with it, you could create tons of original songs without ever having to spring for an audio interface & even if you get tired of the same old loops, you can always edit the MIDI files or download free loops from around the internet.They manage to fit everything onto one screen, which is nice for editing

    Cons

    As i am just a beginner in creating music, don't know about much of the cons, but it is gud to me , so i will try my best to be good with it.

    Summary

    Making music is one of my aims in life & i use to find it very hard to do as i am just an beginer,but when Garageband came up i found it bit easier & very userfriendly than others & secondly you don't have to buy all those expensive consoles & instuments to creatwe music, Ipad is awesome as it have garageband specially for a guy like me, still after i bought it i was not getting anything that easily to work it out because if you don't know how it really works, then it can be very complex. It is very sophisticated, which now i feel is one of the best reasons to buy this app & this blog have just given me pocket full of information regarding what i really wanted to kno & i am happy & satisfied with it now, I have also opted for the <a href="http://www.wiziq.com/course/11846-garageband-for-ipad-in-1-hour''/>garageband for ipad tutorials course from Mike Klinger</a> which I have found very useful to me. I will be following this blog post because of comments of such senior people in music line who have bag full of information,so i need some more knowledge of reviews of this blog & him to sharpen my skills more.
