GarageBand and App Store

GarageBand turns your iPad or iPhone into a collection of touch instruments and a complete recording studio to create music on the go. And with Live Loops, you can have fun creating music like a DJ. Use Multi-Touch gestures to play keyboard, guitar, and create beats to sound like a pro – even if you’ve never played a note before. Plug in a guitar or bass and play with the amps and pedal. Quickly record a performance with a touch instrument, microphone, or guitar with up to 32 tracks. Use the sound library to download more instruments, loops, and sound packages for free. Use the iOS 13 Audio Units extensions to play, record, and mix third-party instruments and effects in GarageBand. Then share your songs with your friends and family.
