"Great tool for professional songwriter"
GB for iPad is an amazing app at an amazing price. It allows me to record song ideas anywhere and then transfer them to my iMac's GarageBand program (and even to Logic. a full DAW program for professional studio work).
The app is easy to use and has a plethora of features. Various instruments.including a drum pad that alone is terrific. I'm am no longer tied to my Home Recording Studio while writing songs. I can record live via the iPad's built-in mic - vocals, piano and acoustic guitar. The app is a full multi-track recorder which basically makes the iPad a fairly complete recording studio.
I recently ordered the Alesis IO dock for the iPad which allows connections for guitars, synths, mics, midi etc. This device makes iPad with GatageBand an portable professional recoding studio and mixer.
I can't think of any cons for an app that does so much.
As a professional songwriter and musician, GarageBand for iPad is now my go to device for recording new songs. It allows me to record anywhere which means that I no longer do I have to stop and jot down ideas as I work. A truly amazing app for professional musicians and amateurs who want to mkae their own music.
