GarageBand turns your iPad into a collection of Touch Instruments and a full-featured recording studio — so you can make music anywhere you go. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play pianos, organs, guitars, drums, and basses on your iPad. They sound and play like their counterparts, but let you do things you could never do on a real instrument. Enjoy a full range of Smart Instruments that make you sound like a pro — even if you’ve never played a note before. Plug an electric guitar into your iPad and play through classic amps and stompbox effects. Use the built-in microphone or a guitar to record, or capture any performance. Then mix up to eight tracks to create a song you can share.


Play your iPad like a musical instrument.
• Perform on dozens of musical instruments on the innovative Multi-Touch keyboard.
• Tap out beats from the seat of acoustic and electronic drum kits.
• Recreate legendary guitar rigs on your iPad with 9 amps and 10 stompbox effects.
• Record your voice using the built-in microphone, and apply fun sound effects.
• Use the Sampler to create an instrument from sounds you record, then play them on a keyboard.


Sound like a virtuoso with Smart Instruments.
• Tap chords to instantly create keyboard grooves with the Smart Keyboard.
• Strum chords on acoustic and electric Smart Guitars, or trigger fingerpicking patterns for popular chords.
• Groove with an onscreen electric or upright Smart Bass by tapping on chords.
• Drag drum instruments onto a grid to create your own beats with the Smart Drums.

• Use over 250 professionally prerecorded loops as a backing band to your song.


Share your songs.

Crash crash everywhere    Not working
I try to get into the app but it keeps on logging me out       Bugs
I love this app Its fun and is a great to create music without the frustration of writing out each individual note It would be nice if there were more instruments though Maybe add basic brass and woodwinds and marimbas xylophones and vibraphones for now with more complex instruments like oboes and bassoons to come                More Instruments
superb maybe a little more sounds feels kinda like a demo a horn would be lovely             amazing
This is a great app overall however I gave it three stars because of some bugs and the amount of storage it takes up Almost an entire GB really Apple Around 250 or 500 mb would be reasonable as it has many features I have a felling Apple only made it take up so much room is so well think that we need to buy more storage          Great app But I love my storage too
Flute Oboe Clarinet etc At east add some woodwinds brass and more percussion like marimba and bells             Needs More Sounds
This app is great I recommend it if you have a ear for music but the only thing is it needs more instruments it should be like the computer version          Please add every instrument
After it took over 2 hours to download I opened it up to make a beat with the drums and then the screen immediately goes grey and doesnt let me play any instruments    Cant play ANYTHING
While having more instruments to choose would be nice the problem is pretty much eliminated by Audiobus With it you can record music from other apps right into GB and solve the problem of instrument selection The interface is slick with just a bit of a learning curve but well worth the time             Great musical tool
Ive been trying to download for two days now Unfortunately I continuously receive an error that GarageBand cannot complete download at this time I assure you this is not a network problem or a phone issue Im connected to my wifi and just bought myself an iPhone 6 I really want to put this app to full use and give 5 stars please help    Refuses to download
This app is great I used to make all my songs but I do suggest adding brass instruments like trumpet horn trumbone and stuff like that                Awesome
k thnx apple                more stuff
First of all I would like to say that Ive been using this app for about 4 years and I have to say that it needs a lot of improvement Drum loops sound terrible and not only that there is just not a lot to choose from Ive had a lot of fun with this app and a heck of a lot of patience I would like to see some new loop packs and guitar effects available in the IAPs This app has the capability of being the best mobile recording app on market but it seems the creators of Garage Band think the app is already all that it can be          Mixed Emotions with GB
This app is incredibly what you want Every single tool that you need for arrangement like a personal studio in your pocket The only thing is you want some more instruments                Im in love with this app
I love this app but please please please please pleaaaaaaaaase add drop tunings to guitar and make it easier to play different tunings without transposing                Gr8
I payed like 7 dollars for this a while back and nowIts free Also the smart instruments are very frustrating I thought those were for people who didnt know how to play the instrument such as myself Why can you not choose chords why only a few       Not cool Apple
It has a good selection of instruments that is quite enjoyable however it could use more traditional and variety in instruments other than that its rather useful             Instruments
Not really worth my 5 though Limited options fun to play around but got boring          Its alright
Smart instruments make it intuitive and fun to start writing music in an iPhone I just wish it played well with GB for Mac as of now you have to use iCloud as a go between with no ability to interact in real time between the two             Fun but limited
I agree with the number 1 review on here this app should have all the same access as on the Mac version also I think Logic Pro should be free because a lot of musicians dont have that kind of money to spend on recording programs                Response to number 1 review and my opinion
Could you add horns or a brass section and an 808 drum section or pads                Need more instruments
I absolutely love this app it may not be the most professional DAW out there but it definitely one of the most fun The only problem I have is that it really needs more stuff added maybe some brass instruments some more effects or settings for vocals and definitely more drum sounds Like I said I love the app and would recommend it to people who are looking to get into recording or even seasoned musicians who are just looking for something fun to mess around with Just at this time it is kind of limiting             I love this app but needs more
Jazz and woodwind instruments would be an amazing addition to the roster of instruments already in the app             Needs more instruments
Its A Great App But Needs Improvement And Really NEEDS Horns Really Bad Also Fix The Sample Cheese             Needs More Instruments
I think you should fix the drums so that cymbal rolls are recorded properly The playback is truncated and thus sounds stilted and nonhuman as a result Also very few of the Inter App compatible music apps are available when I click on them in GB so you need to fix that Other than that I love this app dearly                One of my most used iOS apps however
Please add midi import and exportplease add audio import from other apps and please add a mixer for automationfadersfx and             Thanks
Its an excellent app but the only thing I want to change is that when l use it pn my iPad l have to email the song to myself and then save it which is very annoying so all l ask is that the next update allows you to save songs as audio files directly                Allow people to save songs as audio files
Ive been using GB for over a year now and very happy with it Sure it could use an update with more instruments and such but all and all cant beat it I bout the irig2 yesterday and it just made this app much more incredible I plug my guitar into the iPad and use the amplifiers and away we go I find that Im playing the heck out of my guitar now thanks to this feature Thanks for all the hard work             Awesome
Pure genius I would have thought a hundred or a few hundred years would pass before something as phenomenal as this would be created a complete recording studio that fits in the palm of ones hand Technology has advanced so far This does more and cheaper and better and faster than desktop programs costing 50x more For musical creatives like me listen this is an app of your dreams Now I was weened on desktop apps I have had experience tasting software like Reason Acid Pro Sonar Cubase albeit the latter limited as most of my experience is pc computers so I had that under my belt plus I kind of play keyboard and guitar in real life the latter kinda iffy Im not a software nor a music novice but I feel confident that GarageBand will and does level the playing field between me and the pros Now at least 2 things keep me from giving it a 5er the huge file size which is nominally justified by its extensive instrument setsexcept no because midi is not huge and I would really love to simply export a completed song to My Music Otherwise its a keeper and I am quite satisfied with it             I Wanna Testify
This great app is still unusable under iOS 9 When monitoring the built in mic on the iPad Air 2 there is noticeable latency The problem does not seem to happen with my iPhone or on older iPads Why has Apple abandoned this product    latency on iPad Air 2 iOS 9
Totally awesome Ive always wanted to make EDM and with all the synths it gives you now its super easy I highly recommend this app for anyone who wants to make EDM BUT the controls can be a little annoying sometimes and it doesnt have certain features that you need to DJ So if you want to DJ I would recommend a software like ableton but besides that its a great app             Sick Dude
I recently used it to do a school project If there were more side effects it would be so much more useful          Good but
Room 237                237
Would be awesome             Please add more instruments
I cant restore my purchases    Cant restore
Tank you Apple Co for GarageBand and all App Tank you Apple for iPhone and all Devices I have a Piano I have a Guitar I have a iPhone 6 Plus I have everything with iPhone Tank you Apple ooooommm ding ding                Tank you Apple Co for GarageBand
I love it but takes up too much space                Best band app
I love this app Only thing is I cant seem to find anything similar to a hip hop kit or and EDM Bass My songs sound incomplete without extra instruments                Lots of fun but needs more
A LONG TIME AGO I WROTE THIS BELOWLove the app Though sometimes I have issuesI created two great new songs that I cannot play The app will crash when I attempt to open them I hope the Apple Team will address this issue with a new update to make sure this will not happen again The user interface is easy to use especially for beginners I have been using this since May of 2013 and since then have created well over 100 songs The only disappointment in the application is the lack of brass orff and separate hand percussion instruments means I have to finish the song on the computer GarageBand which I dont mind but I find it rather inconvenient In addition there is no way to add tremolos amp simulations or other sound affects other than the basic echoes and reverbs However I have seen some keyboard instruments like the Electric Piano allow tremolos and chorus effects So all is not lost I also wish the Smart Keyboard applied to ALL of the keyboard sounds If you dont know what I mean look at the Keyboard menu and submenus Now look at the menu for the Smart Keyboard Did this answer your question Quite a disappointment The guitars are limited to only 4 types The basses are limited to 8 The Smart Strings and Smart Keyboards are confusing at first and in fact I have used this app on 2 iOS products for the past 8 months and I am still confused There arent that many drum sets either and the Drums are a bit of a disappointment But do not worry All of these criticisms are for minor problems of which are not that big of a deal It is still one of my favourite apps of all time so when it is all said and done Quit hearing it from me and try out GarageBand for yourself It is a sublime app It was worth every pennyNOW I CANT OPEN ANY ICLOUD SONGS AT ALL FIX IT    FIX IT
I would really like some sax selection and some horns too because it would sound nice Thanks             Needs some more instruments
I use this app a lot I overall like it I think you should be able to preview the instruments and sound selections before you choose them If its not what you want or like its time consuming going back and forth to select another one             Great app
Whats with the premature tone cutout when Im using the amp simulator Amplitubes tones and sustain are much closer to those of an actual decent sounding amp and Im talking about the free versions Lots of cheesy amp simulators included in the GarageBand bundle too but thats one snobs opinion Some cool stomp box options though for when an old rocker wants to dust off a few old badly executed Slayer riffs Ultimately this app has a ton of features and is well worth its very low price          Pretty cool
I just wrote a page long review and it was deleted because I didnt have a username Garbage Can you guys scramble up a widget so I can read my notes and listen Unless theres an option for that that I just havent seen yet          About to lose my panties
This app is great I just bought a bass and the bass on GB is helping out A LOT Im also going to be getting a drum set and Im learning the basics on here But maybe just a few things you can add are some brass instruments Like trombone trumpet tuba and euphonium And maybe some woodwind instruments like flute saxophone clarinet bass clarinet and bassoon Also one last request in the smart guitar section maybe you can add a tenor guitar ukulele and a balalaika Thank you for your time                Amazing app But needs more
This app is relatively easy to use My main issue with it is its glitches I unplugged my headphones while it was playing a song and it froze So I tried closing the app and starting again Nothing Still frozen I even turned my phone on and off and that didnt do anything So I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and lost a few files that I never got the chance to put on iCloud and its STILL not working I try to open a new file and it freezes Then when I close and reopen the app it says cant open file Its either corrupted or a file type not compatible with GarageBand Nothing I do will work and Ive tried everything Fair warning to users not to unplug headphones in the middle of a song playing Because apparently that means ruining GarageBand on your device forever       Like the app
Shouldnt it support the new IPod touch 6th gen          Support
Dont get me wrong this game is great but it needs more instruments is all Im asking Thanks             Awesome but needs more
I am a bass player but I have always had songs rolling around in my head Since I believe one must be a contortionist to play guitar and kudos to all you amazing people out there that can actually play guitar I had always been frustrated that I could not make the songs in my head a reality Enter GarageBand This program has given me that creative outlet to produce music that I never thought was possible So I want to say thank you to the programmers of this app Sincerely and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOUI have but two requests1 Enable the program to allow the user to move the fret board higher to allow playability to the 24th fret2 Please add 2 basses to the bass collection fretless slappop bassI believe these 2 minor improvements would make this program absolutely perfectThanks again                Mind Opening Creativity
This is agreat app for people who love to make music its not a waist of money i dont regret downloding this app one more time if you love music download now                DOWNLOAD IF YOU LIKE MUSIC
The app is great It works well with guitar interfaces Its easy to use There are some missing features though In particular it needs the abilities to pan tracks left or right and autotune for vocals             App is great but needs more features
