📯 Sound the Trumpets 🎺

An update to GarageBand has arrived,bringing it to version 2.2 (as of Jan. 18,2017) just in time for our review.

That being said this is not your usual review, we’ll be the exploring new features for those already familiar with the touch-version of GB for iOS as well.

The traditional Timeline View
The Live Loop sketch pad
GarageBand 2.2 brings Apple’s mobile DAW features like Multi-Track Recording, a redesigned Sound Browser, Mixer Tracks with Studio-Grade effects and Alchemy Synth integration.

The all-new redesigned Audio-Recorder with Studio Effects

GarageBand’s reorganized Sound Browser
The Instruments and Audio Tools integrated within GarageBand are simply amazing. There is a lot to be said about the level of innovation that Apple has pioneered with their collection of Touch Instruments: the level of control and expression available in the Drums, Keyboard (particularly the synths) Accoustic, Bass and Electric Guitars are cleverly implemented.

Downloadable sounds for Garageband’s new Drum Sequencer
The new Sound Library adds the ability to download additional sounds to Garageband’s built in presets

The latest update includes a (long overdue) drum machine,a sound pack library,and two Asian classical instruments.

One of two all new touch instruments,the Guzhheng.

There is a Mac version as well, check the links above to give it a try.
