Apple GarageBand for Mac
Apple’s vetted audio editing app, GarageBand, is designed to bring the capabilities of a music creation studio to your own desktop. The app comes with a large sound library, allows you to have your own virtual recording sessions and enables you to add amazing effects to your audio content.
Apple GarageBand comes with 40 built-in lessons that will present basic elements related to playing different types of music, such a rock, classical, blues and even pop. The app will listen to your practice sessions in real time and presents statistics about your accuracy level.
There is also the possibility to take “Artist Lessons”, which means that you get to practice on famous songs while being taught by the artists that made them popular. Take into account that there are additional requirements to gain access to these lessons.
If you want to work on your own songs, Apple GarageBand offers you the possibility to use a virtual session drummer or the sound of other instruments included in the library (the extensive controls, such as amps or stompboxes, allow you to personalize the sound).
Furthermore, you can choose to play any instrument by using your iPad: use the Logic Remote on your device and connect it to your Mac via your Wi-Fi network.
The recording can be mixed and mastered: you can use up to 255 tracks for the same song, change the audio’s timing, adjust the rhythm and much more. The final result can be sent to your iTunes library or you can upload it directly to Soundcloud.
To make sure you always have access to your projects, you can choose to sync them to your iCloud account: as a result, you will be able to continue working on your songs on your iOS device (you must install the GarageBand for iOS app).
All in all, Apple GarageBand provides a plethora of audio editing tools that will help you record tracks in no time and generate high quality content.
