Apple have updated GarageBand, adding 2,600 new loops and sounds as well as more compatibility with their iOS apps.
Apple rolled out their new update for GarageBand on Mac yesterday and it comes with a bunch of great new additions. Functionality with iOS has been improved in various areas such as with GarageBand’s iOS app. Compatibility has also been added for Live Loops, a feature added to GarageBand mobile in January that plays clips on loop allowing you to stack and record over for endless creative freedom.
Apple also launched Music Memos alongside Live Loops in January, a new recording app designed to be a sophisticated sketch pad for your musical ideas. One of the apps most impressive features was it’s in-built bands of drummer and bassist that you could add to recordings or jam with, they even adjusted tempo with you. GarageBand’s new update adds compatibility with Music Memo files so you can open projects from the app in your desktop software and expand upon it.
For those who don’t do any music production on mobile, don’t worry as Apple have also added something to keep everyone happy. 2,600 new Apple loops and sounds have been added giving you even more to play and create some great tunes with.
Here’s the full list of improvements and additions:
