This review is for Garageband on the iPad, however, this app is universal and works on the iPhone and iPod Touch. You can create music loops and songs using Garageband, even if you can’t play an instrument.
There are options for amateurs and advanced options for professionals and musicians. This is my all time favourite app. I you asked me what app would I have if I could only ever have 1 app on my iPad/iPhone . . . I would answer “Garageband” for sure. I use this app for my background music on my apps.
The music loop I put together, shown at the end of this review took me only 30 minutes, using the mini-loops provided and just by mix and matching which sounds go well together and I am certainly not a musician. You can even plug your guitar in and experiment with a range of amps and effects that would otherwise cost a fortune to buy.
You can make music on the go and you even have the option to then upload your creation to Garageband on the Mac to further tweak and perfect it. It is fun too. Garageband is priced at $4.99 at the time of this review and for me it’s well worth the money. To be honest, if I had to pay $20 for this app it would still be worth it as it saves me a lot of money in the long run, where I would otherwise have to employ a musician to do my background sound loops. Even if you don’t use this app for anything practical, it’s so much fun just messing around with this app. In all, a fantastic app.
